The first T20I saw India edge out South Africa convincingly by eight wickets on Wednesday, September 28, at the Greenfield Cricket Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. The home side will hope to keep the winning momentum going in the second game, while the Proteas will hope to bounce back when they lock horns on Friday, September 30, in Guwahati.

Bowling first, Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar wreaked havoc, reducing South Africa to 8/5. However, a steady partnership between Wayne Parnell and Keshav Maharaj helped them post 106/8 in their 20 overs. In response, the visitors did well to send back Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli cheaply, but KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav scored unbeaten fifties to take India home.

The Men in Blue will look to keep the momentum going and wrap up the series in the second game of the series. Fans will expect a high-scoring game in Guwahati and on that note, we try to predict the three highest run-scorers of the second T20I.

#3 Suryakumar Yadav

Team India batter Suryakumar Yadav has been in exceptional form with the bat in the shortest format this year. He is the highest run-scorer in this format with 732 runs in 21 matches at an average of 40.66.

The Mumbai-born batter played a special hand, scoring an unbeaten half-century in the first game, and is expected to continue the momentum in the upcoming matches.

#2 Aiden Markram

South Africa’s Aiden Market was the only batter to resist the Indian pacers in Kerala. He played some delightful-looking shots for his 25-run knock off 24 balls. The right-handed batter was eventually trapped LBW by Harshal Patel.

Markram has been in decent form of late and is due for a big knock in the next game. He will hope to put up a big knock under his belt and lift South Africa’s middle order ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

#1 Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli registered his 71st international hundred on Thursday.

After a lean patch with the bat for almost three years, Virat Kohli finally stormed back to form in the Asia Cup 2022 with a hundred against Afghanistan. Since then he has been in good nick, scoring useful runs at the top order.

However, Kohli missed out in the last game against South Africa, managing only three runs off nine deliveries. He was dismissed by Anrich Nortje, trying to play a shot away from the body. The talismanic scorer is expected to make amends in the next game and be among the runs.
