Amit Mishra, Stuart Binny and Ajinkya Rahane failed to make into the playing eleven. Captain MS Dhoni has deployed three spinners to take on Proteas.
Playing eleven:

India: MS Dhoni (Captain, Wicketkeeper), S Dhawan, RG Sharma, V Kohli, SK Raina, AT Rayudu, AK Patel, R Ashwin, B Kumar, MM Sharma, H Singh
South Africa: F du Plessis (Captain) AB de Villiers (Wicketkeeper), HM Amla, , JP Duminy, DA Miller, F Behardien, CH Morris, K Rabada, KJ Abbott, M de Lange, Imran Tahir

India is lagging by 0-1 in the three match series with South Africa winning the first match by seven wickets. Proteas capitalised on poor performance by the Indian bowlers to overhaul the challenging 200-run target.

The Indian batsmen had done well in the first T20 as a century from Rohit Sharma and a quickfire knock from Virat Kohli enabled the hosts to post the big total in 20 overs. But despite employing three pacers, the Indian bowling attack was unable to come up with the goods on a grassy wicket which offered plenty of bounce and movement.
