South Africa bowl in 2nd T20 worldwide

Klaasen, who was man of the match when South Africa gained their only win in the one-day series, opened his score with two sixes and didn't look back.

"JP was the key factor to my innings‚" he said.

While the right-handed middle-order batsman is now second on the list with 108 runs in the ongoing series, Dhawan needs 33 runs to go past his opening partner. "Luckily it worked out", said Klaasen. He also left behind Ravindra Jadeja who had been hit for six sixes in a T20 game against Australia. "You've just got to put the bowler under pressure and show them your skills".

Jon-Jon Smuts hasn't come good yet despite his big-hitting prowess, while David Miller's poor form has spilled over from the ODIs.

With an eye on a double series triumph on South African soil, the "Men in Blue" will take on the hosts in the final Twenty20 worldwide (T20I) at Newlands, Cape Town on Saturday. The knock was made more special for Klaasen by the fact that he got it on his home ground.

"This one definitely wins", he said.

Kohli needs 17 runs to become the first Indian and third cricketer to reach the 2,000-run mark in the shortest format of the game. "It was raining pretty similarly in our innings as well but I was comfortable when we were ahead of the rate", said Duminy.

The constant drizzle helped ease out conditions as the pitch had proven slow earlier on. In his innings of 79 off 48 deliveries, Pandey his six fours and three huge sixes to provide the impetus that the Indian team needed after losing the top-four. To take down 189 was a pretty good effort. The scoreboard also showed the Duckworth Lewis System par score from the fifth over onwards and initially, SA was behind the par score. That just gave us small targets.

Klaasen has progressed quickly in worldwide cricket after he was called up to the ODI squad in Quinton de Kock's absence owing to injury.

Virat Kohli and co drew first blood in the series, winning the series opener by 28 runs, but the Proteas bounced back in style in the rain-curtailed second T20 thanks to JP Duminy and Heinrich Klaasen to keep the series alive.

Klaasen was called up as De Kock's replacement and made his limited overs debut in the ongoing series against India.

"If on Saturday in Cape Town happens to be my last match for the Proteas‚ so be it because my dream is fulfilled".

"There is a massive gap between worldwide cricket and our domestic cricket".

IBTimes India has compiled a list of records that can be broken by members of the Indian team on Saturday.
