India faced a defeat in the second T20I after being struck by a flurry of Heinrich Klaasen and JP Duminy's innings. South Africa easily sealed the game by 6 wickets after Klaasen's 30 ball 69 with 7 sixes demolished the Indian bowling.
The visitors had posted a total of 188/4 after they lost quick wickets in the first half of the innings. MS Dhoni (52*) and Manish Pandey (79*) were the stars in India's innings.
India got off to a bad start losing Rohit Sharma for a golden duck. His dismissal and failure to score any runs gave Twitteratis enough ammunition to go after the 'talented' Mr. Sharma.
Rohit was adjudged Leg Before Wicket (LBW) on the first ball he faced, as Junior Dala's ball kept low and caught him in front of the stumps.
His dismissal, however, got him a record; an unwanted one. Rohit now stands on top of the list for most number of ducks by an Indian in T20I, 4. He is followed by former India pacer Ashish Nehra and Yusuf Pathan, who are both tied on 3.
