India vs South Africa, 2nd T20I Highlights: Heinrich Klaasen's magnificent knock of 81 off 46 powered South Africa to a four-wicket win over India in the second T20I as the visitors took a 2-0 lead in the 5-match series. Chasing 149, South Africa lost three early wickets thanks to Bhuvneshwar Kumar's brilliant opening spell. However, Klaasen and Temba Bavuma (35) steadied South Africa. When Bavuma fell to Yuzvendra Chahal, Klaasen upped the ante and went on to register his highest score in T20Is.

•All 11 matches - Rohit Sharma's captaincy.
•All lost 7 matches - all others captains.
We were 10-15 runs short. Bhuvi and the fast bowlers bowled well in the first 7-8 overs. But after that we weren't up to the mark. In the second half we needed wickets, but we couldn't get those wickets. They (Klaasen and Bavuma) actually batted really well. We could have bowled better, hope we improve in the next game. We need to win all the remaining three games now. Rishabh Pant, India captain
It was a great win. It was a little bit of a tricky wicket as we all knew, we weren't in trouble but they bowled really well upfront in the first 10 overs, Klaasy's knock was phenomenal and one of the best I have seen. The conditions in which he played and to come out and do what he did made it easy for us at the back end. It was about playing your game and not worrying about the wicket, if it is keeping low it gets in your head as a batter, so you are not quite sure whether to go forward or not, it was about looking to play straight. It was a little bit up and down but we managed to finish it. The coach and captain's decision, Klaasy hasn't played much recently and for him to come in and play the way he did.. it was more to just hold me back but Klaasy proved us wrong. It is really tough to win here, so to have a win like this and be 2-0 up is a great achievement. We are on the right track but there's still a lot of cricket to be played. David Miller
