India vs South Africa 1st T20: Men in Blue are all set to take on the Proteas in the first match of three-match T20 series, which begins from the valley of Dharamshala, on Sunday, at 7PM. India is deploying their key batsmen Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli along with Shreyas Iyer. Also, the Pandya brothers will be filling the spot of all-rounders, along with the Golden Arm Ravindra Jadeja. However, India is missing their senior players, as they have been rested out, but whay they have is enough for the visitors.

In term of pace machine, India have Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Deepak Chahar, and Navdeep Saini, out of which one have to make a way out, as only three pacers can be played. Well, Sundar has a plus point here as he can bat as well, so in an order to make its batting line-up deep, he is the best call. On the other side, South Africa will enter the stadium with their newly appointed skipper – Quinton De Kock, who will lead the team, or can say a new Proteas.
