After being handed a seven-wicket loss in the first T20I, India would be aiming for a comeback when they face South Africa in the second game of the five-match series on Sunday, June 12. The match would be played at the Barabati Stadium and is scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm IST (Indian Standard Time). India pulled off a pretty good batting effort but were unable to match that with the ball in hand as they suffered at the hands of David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen, with the duo tearing apart the attack and helping South Africa to get the win.

The track, according to a report, would be a favourable one for batters but it might not be as high-scoring as the Arun Jaitley Stadium pitch used for the first T20I. It is likely that the pitch has dew, something that might be a bit concerning for the team defending their total.
