India vs South Africa 1st T20I

After a successful series against Australia, India will be facing another strong T20I side in South Africa for yet another 3 match T20I series. South Africa have never lost a T20I series in India and it shows the quality of the South African teams that has toured over the years.

IND vs SA: India to go 1-nil up in the series

South Africa have named a squad for both the India tour and the world cup in Australia. They have such a well rounded side including quality spinners under their disposal. Their pace bowling attack is easily in the top 3 attacks in the world.

India will be without Hardik Pandya for the series who has been given a rest after an arduous Asia cup and the 3 match series against Australia. Arshdeep Singh returns to the side after a break, meanwhile Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been rested for this series. Although India’s balance will take a hit in the absence of Hardik Pandya, India have a quality fifth bowler in Axar Patel which would mean they don’t need the cushion of a sixth bowling option. With Deepak Hooda suffering from a back pain, this will be another great opportunity for Rishabh Pant to showcase his skills in the middle order. India’s pace attack will have an upgraded look with Arshdeep Singh slotting in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and the form of Virat Kohli with the bat puts India ahead of South Africa as a whole. It is expected that India will beat the visitors to go 1-nil up in the series.
