India vs South Africa 2nd T20I: Barabati Stadium Records, Stats -- Most Runs, Wickets, Catches

Barabati Stadium, Cuttack

Cuttack, June 9: The T20I cricket will return to the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack, after a gap of 5 years on Sunday (June 12) when India face South Africa in the second T20I of the five-match series.

After the first T20I at the Arun Jaitely Stadium on Thursday (June 9), the teams will have ample time to recuperate with a good two-day break.

The Cuttack will also offer rather cooler climes to the teams compared to New Delhi, but there will always be the dew factor that keeps the bowlers a bit tentative.

The Barabati Stadium and the Odisha Cricket Association officials have left no stone unturned in their effort to make the occasion a grand one.

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had purchased the first ticket of the match and the online sales will conclude in June 10. The OCA President and Secretary Sanjay Behera had presented the CM with the ticket in the Naveen Niwas.

“We are fully prepared for the smooth conduct of International T-20 Match. Selling of Online ticket has completed. Counter ticket selling will starts on 9th June. we have taken all the steps for it," Behera said.

“The super-sopper machine is powered with a 35 HP engine. Sponge-type materials are used in the wheels of the machine to soak water and dew from the ground. The water soaked by the wheels gets stored in the trays fitted inside the wheels. Once the trays are filled, we take the machine out of the ground and pump out the water.

“Once the water is pumped out, we again bring the machine and soak the water. In this way, we dry up the whole ground. it helps the match from getting cancelled in case of any bad weather” an OCA official had said.

So, here is a look at the T20I stats and previous matches ahead of the second India vs South Africa T20I.
