The 2nd match of the T20 International Series between South Africa and England will be played at the Boland Park in Paarl.
The match is scheduled to start at 06:00 PM IST (12:30 PM GMT).
England have started the T20I series against South Africa exactly as they would have wished to. In the first game at Newlands, South Africa batted first and reached a competitive total of 179. Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen were on good form with the bat.
They could have scored even more, had it not been for the brilliance of Sam Curran. England had a very shaky start, as they lost 3 wickets with just 34 runs on the board. However, Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes formed a match-winning partnership to seal the deal for the Three Lions. George Linde was the pick of the bowlers from South Africa, but his spell was not enough to get his side back into the game.
