In his opening statement, David Miller describes the frightful snake encounter that stopped the second IND-SA T20I match in Guwahati.

India won the second T20I of their three-match series against South Africa by 16 runs, giving the Guwahati hosts a 2-0 victory and sealing the series. A frightening occurrence occurred during the game after the seventh over of the first innings when a snake was discovered on the ground, in addition to the tension of the high-octane match. Before the focus changed to a snake that emerged on the big screen, the cameras showed the South African fielders and Indian openers turning their heads in a certain direction. The ground personnel rushed onto the field to escort the snake off the ground as it was pursued by them.

David Miller of South Africa spoke about the event after the game and said that he “felt a lot was going on there.” The 33-year-old also discussed the power outage that stopped play in the middle of his team’s innings.

In the news conference after the game, he remarked, “We’ve got no control over it. It only provided us some time to consider what had transpired. gave us a chance to talk on the powerplay after the first few overs went in favor of India. The problem with the snake was another factor. There seemed to be a lot going on, in my opinion.”

Despite Miller’s undefeated effort of 106 runs off 47 balls, the visitors could only reach 221 for three in 20 overs while chasing a target of 238 runs. Eight fours and seven sixes were part of his explosive innings, but South Africa still lost by 16 runs despite it. For India, Arshdeep Singh was in excellent form once again and claimed two wickets.

In the meanwhile, the hosts scored 237 for three in 20 overs thanks to half-centuries from KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav. Rahul scored 57 runs off 28 deliveries, while opener Suryakumar scored 61 runs off 22 balls. In the meanwhile, Virat Kohli, who was also hitting well, scored 49 runs off just 28 pitches.
