India vs South Africa 2nd ODI match: When, where and how to watch, live-streaming details

After beating the South African team in the first ODI match by 8 wickets at the Wanderers Stadium on 17 December, the KL Rahul-led Indian cricket team is all set to face Aiden Markram’s squad at St George’s Park, Gqeberha on 19 December.

The Indian team though lost the toss at the Wanderers, but the pacers did their magic and restricted the Proteas to 116 runs in their first innings. All thanks to Arshdeep Singh’s fifer and Avesh Khan picking 4 wickets.

Apart from that, debutant Sai Sudharsan and Shreyas Iyer’s half-centuries gave no space for the Proteas to win the match.

Now, with a different pitch and a different city, the Proteas will be well prepared to test Indian bowling and batting. However, Indian batters look confident after a thumping victory and would like to win this series too.
