IND vs SA 2nd T20 Score: Rohit Sharma and co look to seal series© BCCI
India vs South Africa, 2nd T20I, Live Score Updates: KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma look to put a solid opening stand against South Africa in the second T20I match at Guwahati. Earlier, South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma won the toss and opted to bowl first against India in the game. Rohit Sharma-led Team India look to gain an unassailable lead in the three-match T20I series, while the Proteas eye a series-levelling win. In the first T20I, Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar swung the ball upfront, and South Africa batters had no answers. KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav then hit fifties to take India over the line. South Africa would also hope for a much better show in the second T20I. (LIVE SCORECARD)

India had won the first game by 8 wickets and hence, they lead this three-match series 1-0. The Proteas have to win this game at all cost if they wish to stay alive in this series.

South Africa played poorly in the first T20I. Batting and bowling did not work for the visitors and it needs to be seen whether they make any changes to their lineup for the second game or not
