A sharp spell of afternoon thundershowers lashed Himachal hill city, Dharamsala ahead of the first T20 International between India and South Africa on Sunday.

As per weather forecast, scattered thundershowers are expected during the day.

While the match starts at 7 pm, the HPCA Stadium is equipped with quality drainage facility and can prepare the ground for a full 40-over game even if the rain stops by 5 pm.

The minimum is a five-over per side encounter for it to be official game.

The last time South Africa toured India for a T20I series, they prevailed 2-0. Only de Kock, David Miller and Kagiso Rabada have returned from that side, which gives a huge opportunity for youngsters like allrounder Bjorn Fortuin, pacer Junior Dala and the lone spinner in Tabraiz Shamsi to shine.

With both sides still nascent in their experimentation stage, a cracker of a contest looks to be played out at the picturesque venue in Dharamsala.
