The second T20I game of the three-match T20I series between India and South Africa is scheduled to play at PCA stadium, Mohali on tomorrow. The first game of the series was abandoned due to rain without a ball. But Ahead of the second T20I, Chandigarh police denies providing security to Team India.
According to Times Now, the reason that has been cited for the same is that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has not deposited a fee of Rs 9 crore to Chandigarh police, forcing the latter to deny security cover. Team India has successfully reached the hotel with the help of private security. But BCCI needs to pay Rs 9 crore to Chandigarh police.

Rishabh Pant is a special talent: team India’s new batting coach Vikram Rathore
“I think he is too good a player not to be playing in any team. Everybody in the side echoes this opinion. He is a wonderful opening batsman in the limited-overs format, so there is no reason why he cannot be successful in Test matches. If he gets his gameplan right, he can be a great asset to the team,” Rathore told reporters ahead of the second T20I.
“The interaction with the team has been good. I have been in this profession for a long time. I have interacted with almost all the players. Nothing too tough, it will take me some time to adjust in the setup of team India, but I will manage. Everyone needs to take their opportunities. Everyone has played a good number of matches. The entire team is backing them, and I am sure we continue to back them up, they will produce good results,” Rathore said.
“We are fortunate to have so many all-rounders in the T20 format. Manish and Shreyas are two fine cricketers. Manish has done well in the past and Shreyas had a successful tour to West Indies. They need to be consistent,” he added.
“All young cricketers need to understand the difference between fearless cricket and careless cricket. The team wants everyone to play without fear. We want Rishabh to play all his shots as it makes him special. But you do not want any batsman to be careless and reckless,” Rathore said.
