Records at Capetown

Total fifteen t-20 matches were played on this ground before, Out of which batting first team won 3 matches. The average score at batting first is 148, which the same average is on batting second. Highest total on this ground is 188, which was made by England in 2007 at ICC World cup match against Zimbabwe. Indian batsmen Manish Pandey finally got a chance to perform first time in this Africa tour and he started hitting boundaries from the word go in the match. With a magnificent strike rate of 164+, Manish Pandey slammed six fours and three glorious sixes during his innings.

In the 2nd match. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal concedes 64 runs in his four-over spell, which help Klassen to laid the game into the Indian spinners. Chahal registered his name in a poor record book of conceding most runs by an Indian Bowler in a T20I match. Now we are expecting that Jasprit Bumrah might become back through this match and for Rohit Sharma’s place, young batsman Lokesh Rahul should be considered. On the other side, Team Proteas were looking confident after fantastic victory over team India. Skipper JP Duminy and Klassen scored massive Century in previous game while Young Bowler Junior Dala has picked four wickets in this series so far.
