The duo kept the Indians on track with a 43-run partnership. With a win in South Africa's tally, the series is levelled at 1-1 with one match to go which will be the series decider. We were looking at 175 with the loss of early wickets.

India was in a dire need of someone to produce a mature innings from someone in the middle order.

Earlier batting first, Virat Kohli's men got off to a poor start as with just 45 runs on board. The three-match series is now locked at 1-1. Importantly, he had wiped off a significant number of runs as the Indian bowlers cowered under pressure.

3 bigger 5th-wicket partnerships in T20Is than the unbroken 98 between Manish Pandey and Dhoni at SuperSport Park.

Kohli was disappointed to have lost, and said: "It was a tough one for the bowlers".

No fairytale ending for Danica
He had the race in control until a caution set up a restart, and Blaney made the wrong moves in trying to wrap up the win. The first half of the race played host to aggressive maneuvers with 15 lead changes and 11 leaders.

Van Niekerk, at the other end, was more innovative with her shot selection, playing the fall-sweep and finding the square boundary on the leg side without much difficulty.

Klaasen said his innings was better than the Wanderers' cameo wherein rain and a truncated game also provided a T20-like situation for him to chase the total down. She struck another six thereafter, remaining unbeaten on 58 before rain stopped play.

"It wasn't planned. But the way their seamers bowled, the cutters, they've got very, very good skills as I have said before".

Is Pandya the answer to India's all-round puzzle? The beleaguered South African team took the attack to Indians and outplayed the Virat Kohli-led team in every department. "So it is not easy to get a run a ball", he added. He collected 41 runs off 12 balls he faced from Chahal, which are also the most any batsman has scored off an India bowler in a T20I. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal had an off day today as he leaked 64 runs off his 4 overs. Suresh Raina (31 off 24) matched his partner stroke for stroke and hit right-arm pacer Dane Peterson for three boundaries in the next over to take India to 40 for one after four overs. However, Bhuvneshwar didn't pick a single wicket and that proved detrimental to the visitors' cause in this clash. Overall, only two bowlers have had more expensive figures than Chahal - McCarthy (69 runs) against Afghanistan a year ago and 68 leaked by Kyle Abbott against West Indies in 2015.

The South Africa wicketkeeper-batsman, promoted to bat at No. 4 in the hope of accelerating the run rate did his job with aplomb, hammering 69 off 30 balls to bring Proteas within striking distance.
