Twitter Reactions: Heinrich Klaasen, JP Duminy outclass India as South Africa level series

Posted On / /

A maiden half-century by Heinrich Klaasen and an excellent finishing job by JP Duminy paved the way for the Proteas to level the T20I series 1-1 against India after a six-wicket win at the SuperSport Park in Centurion on Wednesday.

Chasing a tough 189 for victory, the hosts reached their target with eight deliveries to spare and in the process ensured that Saturday’s final match of the tour will decide the outcome of the three-match series.

Klaasen and Duminy were key to ensuring that their side avoided too many bumps along the way in wet conditions on the Highveld, with the former blasting a fearless 69 off 30 balls (3 fours, 7 sixes) and the latter completing the job with an unbeaten 64 off 40 balls (4 fours, 3 sixes).

Earlier, a career-best 79 not out (48 balls, 6 fours, 3 sixes) by Manish Pandey and a dazzling 52 (28 balls, 4 fours, 3 sixes) by MS Dhoni helped India end with a flourish as the pair added an unbroken 98 for the fifth wicket.

Junior Dala was the pick of the bowlers for the Proteas.

Here is how Twitter reacted to SA’s win over India in 2nd T20I:
