IND vs SA: South African players arrived in India to play three T20Is and three ODIs. The first of the three-match T20I series is taking place at Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram.
India’s form in T20Is has been pretty good, given the way they composed themselves in the three-match T20I series against Australia. The Men in Blue won the series by 2-1 and stunned the Aussies.
The T20I World Cup 2022 is just less than a month away from getting underway. It will kick off from October 16 onwards and it comes to a close on November 13.
Indians have some time to sort out their woes. They must have picked up some lessons from the recently-concluded T20I series against Australian cricket team.
Meanwhile, the Indians are busy playing against South Africa in the three-match T20I series. Talking about the first T20I, Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl first.
Proteas got off to a worst start to the game as they lost wickets like a pack of cards. Deepak Chahar and Arshdeep Singh ran through Proteas’ force with ease.
