TOSS: South Africa elect to bat first.

India are the favourites going into the match, but South Africa will fancy their chances as well. The biggest plus for India is that both MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh have shown signs of being in good form, and with the trio of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli being in great form as well India’s batting is well taken care of. Suresh Raina and Ajinkya Rahane are in indifferent form though. On the bowling front, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ashish Nehra, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Harbhajan Singh, and Pawan Negi have all proven themselves to be in decent nick.

On the other hand, the South Africans have been in decent nick as well. Faf du Plessis continues to be South Africa’s mainstay in T20Is, and he is backed up by the capable Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, David Miller, Rilee Rossouw, and Hashim Amla. The bowling attack i led by Dale Steyn, with Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, Kyle Abbott, and David Wiese.

Squads:

India: MS Dhoni (c & wk), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ashish Nehra, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Harbhajan Singh, Pawan Negi.

South Africa: Faf du Plessis (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, Kyle Abbott, Hashim Amla, Farhaan Behardien, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Rilee Rossouw, Dale Steyn, Aaron Phangiso, David Wiese.
