The second T20I match between India and South Africa had an uninvited guest, as a snake entered the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati to interrupt the game.

The incident happened at the start of the eighth over. A few South African players were quick to spot the reptile, while the ground staff at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium rushed in quickly to catch the snake and avoid a lengthy delay in the match. The unexpected intrusion led to the creation of some humorous memes.

As for the match itself, the Indian batters did a sublime job after being asked to bat first by South African skipper Temba Bavuma.

Opening batter KL Rahul scored his second consecutive half-century, accumulating 57 runs from 28 deliveries, while skipper Rohit Sharma scored 43 runs from 37 deliveries. The duo added 96 runs for the first-wicket stand, whilst after their departures, it was Suryakumar Yadav’s turn to play yet another sublime knock.

Yadav scored his third consecutive half-century, accumulating 61 runs in only 22 deliveries. Virat Kohli also looked in sublime touch as he smashed 49 runs in 28 deliveries, as the duo brought up the fastest 100-run stand for India in T20I cricket - in only 42 deliveries.

Thanks to the wonderful batting display, India managed to score 237/3 in 20 overs, which happens to be the highest T20I total at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium.
