That's all from us. Thank you for company tonight. Kohli and his boys had it easy in Mohali and they will head to Bengaluru for the final T20 that is to be played on Sunday. South Africa will have a chance to square the series but it will be a uphill task for the Proteas at Kohli's IPL home. Do join us for the final game, untill then we bid you goodbye.

South Africa missed a trick by holding back Rabada for the final over. Should have bowled the 17th and 19th over. Not a very impressive tactic form the first-time skipper de Kock. 

Overall, it has been a thoroughly professional performance by India. They dominated the match throughout and finished with an over to spare. And yet another unbeaten innings for Virat in a successful run-chase.

Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match! 

Kohli: Thank you, you reminded me of the best T20I game (IND vs AUS, 2016 WT20) of my career! Today was slightly different, and a slightly better pitch, so you could get more value for your shots. Lot of character. They got off to a good start. To pull things back from that shows a lot of character. We're looking to try new people, see who stands up in crunch situations. Lots of positives for us.

(What inspires his consistency?) The badge in front of my shirt. It's the pride of playing for one's country. If you want to make your team win, you will find a way to perform. Get the team across the line anyhow. Test cricket, one-day cricket, the will should be to win for your country. 

22:32 (IST)

Quinton de Kock, SA captain: I think we got off to a great start. They bowled pretty well towards the end. They assessed and understood the conditions much quicker than we did. There's a lot of pressure for some of the new guys coming in and I thought they played really well. Obviously we didn't get a winning start but I thought they held their nerve very well.  Bowled really well against the world class batting line up for India. Unfortunately when there was pace on the ball it looked like it was easier to bat on, so it was about taking the pace off. Since I am coming back from time off and getting ready for the new cricketing season I was nice and refreshed and quite hungry to get out there.

22:21 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan: Good start for all of us. I was timing the ball really well and enjoying my batting. Look forward to score more runs. We practice a lot in the nets at that pace and we're used to it, and can counter it (as a result). (On Miller's catch) It was an unbelievable catch, and I'm sure Virat must be thinking the same. Have to really appreciate it. I hit it hard. he took a tremendous catch. I took it in my stride.

22:18 (IST)

India win second T20I by seven wickets to beat South Africa for the first time in India. Shreyas Iyer with a boundary to clinch the win for India. The hosts lead the three-match series 1-0.

Iyer is down the wicket and burries the ball straight to long on fence. He struck this all along the ground, taking no real risks and ensuring he remains unbeaten to see India home.

22:17 (IST)
six

SIX! Kohli jumps down the pitch and he has the spin covered and clobbers it over long on for another maximum. India one-hit away.

22:16 (IST)

After 18 overs,India 138/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 64 , Shreyas Iyer 11)

Kohli begins the over with a wonderful six over backward square leg and even though Rabada is able to give just a single off the next five balls, India need run-a-ball to register a win.

22:16 (IST)
six

SIX! Geez! What.A.Shot!! Rabada slants a delivery on Kohli's legs and that has been flicked with a nonchalant flick. This a phenomenal shot to say the least. High, high quality hit. Shot of the day!

India vs South Africa, LIVE Cricket Score, 2nd T20I at Mohali Latest Updates: India win second T20I by seven wickets to beat South Africa for the first time in India. Shreyas Iyer with a boundary to clinch the win for India. The hosts lead the three-match series 1-0.

2nd T20I preview: India take on South Africa in the 2nd T20I at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali, Punjab.

Rains played spoilsport in the first T20I at Dharamsala as the match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The action now moves on to Mohali and the two teams would be looking to draw first blood. It's a litmus test for the inexperienced pace bowling attack in absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The trio of Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar and Khaleel Ahmed had impressed in the West Indies series where India clean-swept the hosts 3-0. As per the forecast, there is no threat of rain and the conditions are expected to be warm and humid.

Navdeep had a brilliant debut while Chahar impressed with his swing. This is their chance to build on those performances in the Caribbean and take one step forward towards staking a claim in the T20 side.

It will be a challenge for the pacers and the Proteas have already sorted out their strategies. Assistant batting coach Lance Klusener has said that they will look to take advantage of the inexperience in the pace attack.

“Looking at the Indian team, that [inexperienced bowling attack] is an area we are going to take advantage of just as I suppose, you look at opposing teams and at areas, which you can take advantage of,” Klusener had said on the eve of the Dharamsala T20I.

“They are great cricketers and we are not taking anything away from that and our focus will be on ourselves and little areas that we can take advantage and maybe that’s one of them,” he added.

Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul will be battling it out for the opening slot while Rishabh Pant would be looking to forge consistency with flamboyance.

South Africa, on the other hand, has the exuberance of youth backed by the experience of Quinton de Kock, David Miller and Kagiso Rabada. They would be looking to help the youngsters with all the experience gained while playing in the IPL.

They have some exciting batsmen in Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen who will form the support system of the pivots De Kock and Miller. India would be looking to exploit South Africa's weak spot that is their inexperienced spin department consisting of Tabraiz Shamsi, who has played 14 T20Is and averaged 38.70 with 10 wickets and an economy rate of 7.74, and Linde and Bjorn Fortuin who are yet to play a T20I.

While South Africa are looking to bounce back from World Cup disappointment and build for the future, India would be looking to continue the momentum from the Caribbean and figure out the ideal team combination.
