IND vs SA Live Score: Rishabh Pant faces BIG CAPTAINCY TEST: Follow Live


IND vs SA Live Score: India vs South Africa Live: Although Rishabh Pant was the designated vice-captain, his accession to captaincy was accidental. And it began on a poor note. But the remaining four games will be Rishabh Pant’s biggest test if he is to succeed Rohit Sharma. But in any case, Rahul Dravid will make changes to the bowling line-up as India aim to make a COMEBACK. Follow IND vs SA 2nd T20 LIVE updates on InsideSport

Biggest captaincy test for Rishabh Pant: Leading India for the first time ever, Pant had to swallow a bitter pill when David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen shot down an imposing 212 with utmost nonchalance to go up 1-0 in the series. 

IND vs SA Live: Why Rishabh Pant is under scanner?

  • Rishabh Pant failed to lead Delhi Capitals to the playoffs. 
  • Seen as a future white-ball captain, Pant’s stakes have suddenly come down post-IPL and that has coincided with the resurgence of Hardik Pandya.
  • Returning to full fitness, the pace bowling all-rounder took the IPL by storm not only by his form but by pulling off a coup as he led Gujarat Titans to the title in their debut season. 
  • Amid the growing chorus of ‘Hardik Pandya — the next white-ball captain of India’, Pant will be under scrutiny again as he masterminds a comeback.
  • Pant also made a debatable decision to under bowl the IPL Purple Cap winner Yuzvendra Chahal, fresh from claiming 27 wickets for runners-up Rajasthan Royals.
  • At Kotla, the leggie bowled only two full overs.

As for Pandya, fresh after his historic success with GT, continued from where he left in the IPL. Pandya, who last played for India in November last year in the 2021 T20 World Cup, dazzled with the bat with a 31 not out from 12 balls to prop the total past 200. 

But he failed to impress with the bowl and leaked 18 runs in his only over. The big headache for Pant would be the bowling department where he would have to make a call between Arshdeep Singh and pace gun Umran Malik. 

While the batting looks in perfect shape, the new-look pace department looked flat in the series opener. Seniormost Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not look the same and leaked runs in the death overs, while Harshal Patel too was taken to cleaners.

Youngster Avesh Khan too failed to impress though he was the most economical among the trio. With the duo of Arshdeep and Malik trying hard to impress at the nets with their pace and accuracy, it is likely that one among the duo may be well set for a debut on Saturday. 

It would not be an easy task as another slip-up would mean the Pant-led side would have the difficult task of winning three in a row.

Fresh from their individual players’ success in the IPL, the Proteas are finding themselves at ‘home’. 

In the form of his life, Miller who scored 481 runs at 68.71 in the IPL to play a key role in GT’s triumph, has started in an ominous fashion and looked unstoppable both against spin and pace at Kotla. Quinton de Kock failed to convert his start but the Lucknow Super Giants batter also scored a bagful of runs (508) in the IPL and he would look to make it count here.

With Van der Dussen also striking it rich, the trio will form the batting backbone, while the likes of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje would look to stop the Indians.
