In the final T20I, Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat against South Africa captained by Quinton de Kock.
In the second T20I, Virat Kohli was exceptional with the bat as he brought up his 22nd T20I half-century to help India register an easy win over South Africa in Mohali.
India were tasked to chase 150 runs in 20 overs, the Indian skipper remained unbeaten on 72 and he was well-supported by Shikhar Dhawan who came back to form with a quick knock of 40. India chased down the total with an over to spare to take an unassailable lead of 1-0 in the three-match series. The first T20I was washed out due to rain in Dharamsala.
For India, Deepak Chahar was the star with the ball who finished his quota of four overs with figures of two for 22 that helped the hosts to restrict South Africa to a modest total of 149.
