South Africa opt to bowl, Bumrah rested

Quotes - "I don't think it was the right decision", former South African captain Graeme Smith on Aiden Markram being named South Africa's captain for the ODIs.

Virat Kohli's Indian cricket team are on the cusp of a Twenty20 worldwide series win after thrashing South Africa 5-1 in the recently concluded six-match ODI series.

After winning the ODI series 5-1, India won the first of three T20Is by 28 runs after Bhuvneshwar Kumar's excellent performance where he took a five-wicket haul to wrap up the South Africans for well below their target.

Women Who Clean at Home or Work Have Faster Lung Decline
The men who cleaned, in the meantime, did not experience greater decline in the exhale tests than those who did not clean. In fact, the decline in lung function capacity among cleaners was found to be comparable to smoking nearly 20 pack-years.

With the men's team also scheduled to play their second T20 at the same venue later in the day, the onus will be on Harmanpreet and Co to set the ball rolling for Virat Kohli's team as they eye an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The team management had deemed the issue as "nothing serious", and as such, he is expected to walk out at toss time. Bumrah has been excluded in the decider T20I as he is suffering abdomen stiffness, skipper Virat Kohli explained.

It went from bad to worse in the second over for India. With India reeling on 45 for 3, Raina was joined by Pandey and the two were watchful for a couple of overs before the latter sent Tabraiz Shamsi to the cleaners. In the first T20I at the Wanderers, the visitors notched up a clinical win. Amidst this backdrop, the action moved to the SuperSport Park. He broke the shackles with a powerful six against left-arm spinner Jon-Jon Smuts. Kohli's "demotion" to number four, despite staggering average at his favoured spot, helps stabilise the lower middle order at least in the short term.

Earlier, India rode on some power packed batting to post 188/4 in their 20 overs. The hosts had put their hopes in a basket full of new eggs. However, Indian team operates in such a manner that they are capable of even dominating the T20 opener. So, JP Duminy must find solutions from within the available squad.

The mystique that is LeBron James' magic touch has already taken a hit as four members of his team have gone down with injuries. Guard Lou Williams will compete in the three-point contest and recently acquired forward Tobias Harris in the skills challenge.

"Whenever India goes overseas, the reputation is that India are not good at batting against short bowling".

"We will know more next week, but as you've seen on social media he's back to running, and he'll be increasing his bowling intensity". South Africa were off to a good start after their captain Duminy opted to field first under overcast conditions. Klaasen didn't allow Yuzvendra Chahal to settle in and lofted the legspinner over extra-cover for a magnificent six before unleashing a reverse-sweep for the same result.
