If you are cricket fan then you cannot miss South Africa vs Australia 2nd T20 game today live from Port Elizabeth. South Africa must win the second t20 game to keep the series alive. On the other hand, Australia will be looking to win the match today and seal the series 2-0.
After the dominant performance by Aussie in the 1st t20i game against the home team South Africa, Australia will be full of confidence as they move forward to play 2nd t20I game on 23rd February 2020.
Both South African bowling as well as batting seem very low in the 1st game. First they lack handling pressure and protecting quick single runs in the middle overs and later on in the 2nd inning of the game, South Africa lack building of partnership as it was needed to chase the massive target of 197 runs in 20 overs.
South African fans were very disappointed by their team’s performance. They will be hoping to see competitive 2nd T20I game.
