Evin Lewis and Quinton de Kock are the best captaincy picks for your fantasy teams.
West Indies missed out on the opportunity to take a 2-0 lead in the 2nd T20I, as their batters went too hard at the bowlers in the middle overs. They did a great job to restrict the visitors for just 166 runs, but despite some wonderful power-hitting from Fabian Allen, they lost the match.
Meanwhile, South Africa pulled things back in the 2nd T20I and won the game by 16 runs to level the series 1-1. George Linde went for a lot of runs in the 1st T20I, but he bowled a crucial spell in the 2nd T20I by picking up 2 important wickets, which won the game for South Africa. There is still a lot of scope for improvement, especially the death bowling needs to be addressed.

It’s a dry surface with not much grass on it. It’s hard to control the run-flow in the initial overs and varying the pace will be the key for the bowlers in the death overs. Whoever wins the toss should bowl first.
