419997-2ndt20-061015-ra6hJOHANESBURG : India squandered a strong start provided by Suresh Raina but eventually pulled up their socks to finish with 172/7 in 20 overs. Raina, who made 43 off 26 deliveries had taken the attack to the Proteas bowlers who struggled to find the right length against him and dropped plenty of chances in the field with left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi looking more a club-level cricketer on the field.
India are being captained by Rohit Sharma after regular skipper Virat Kohli was ruled out due to stiff lower back. Kohli had a problem in glutes in the first T20 at Johannesburg.

India were forced to leave out Virat Kohli, who has stiff back and he has been replaced by Dinesh Karthik. India have brought back paceman Jasprit Bumrah, leaving out Jaydev Unadkat. The visitors have also dropped Yuzvendra Chahal and replaced him with left-arm spinner Axar Patel.
South Africa have also made two changes as they replaced JJ Smuts and Dane Patterson with Christiaan Jonker, who will make his debut, and Aaron Phangiso.(With Agency Inputs ).
