South Africa Captain JP Duminy and Heinrich Klaasen scored quick-fire half-centuries as South Africa beat India by six wickets in the second Twenty20 International at the Super Sport Park in Centurion on Wednesday night.
Setting a challenging target of 189, South Africa rode on Klaasen’s 69 off 30 deliveries and skipper Duminy’s unbeaten 64 off 40 balls to chase down the score in 18.4 overs.
Put into bat, Manish Pandey and Dhoni slammed brilliant half-centuries to guide India to a challenging 188 for four.
While Pandey remained unbeaten on 79 off 48 balls, Dhoni made 52 off 28 deliveries.
The duo shared 98 runs for the fifth wicket in just 9.2 overs to take India to the commanding total.
The duo took time to settle down but once they got their eyes set, they clobbered the South African bowlers to all around the park.
While Pandey struck six boundaries and three sixes during his knock, Dhoni was not far behind his younger partner as he found the fence four times and over it thrice.
With this win, the three-match series is locked at 1-1 and the final T20I will be played in Cape Town on Saturday.
