Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed for mere 11 by leg-spinner Imran Tahir, after being bowled by him, against South Africa in the ICC World T20 2016 warm-up tie at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur on Saturday. Currently, India are 52 for the loss of three wickets in seven overs, with Shikhar Dhawan on 27 and Suresh Raina on one. Earlier, South Africa won the toss and elcted to bat first, as they finished on a challenging total of 196 for the loss of eight wickets, courtesy of twin half-centuries from Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy. As this is a warm-up tie, the full 15-member squad is eligible to play the match. Full cricket scorecard: India vs South Africa, ICC World T20 2016, warm-up match at Mumbai

India face off against South Africa in the ICC World T20 2016 warm-up match at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, on Saturday. South Africa have been in good form in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) over the last few months, but were recently outdone by Australia at home. Interestingly, South Africa had beaten India in India, and India then beat Australia in Australia, before Australia beat South Africa in South Africa. As a result of this stone-paper-scissors scenario it is tough to decide which of the three teams hold an advantage over the others. In any case, India and South Africa will get some practice against each other at Wankhede. Full cricket updates: India vs South Africa, ICC World T20 2016, warm-up match at Mumbai

India are the favourites going into the match, but not by much. South Africa have an excellent team full of players who can single-handedly turn the match around. If the Proteas can overcome their problems against spin they will fare a much better chance to stunning the all-conquering hosts. India will want a repeat of their performance against West Indies, with their other batsmen batsmen getting a chance this time. It should be a close contest at Wankhede.
