IND vs SA, 1st T20I Live Score Updates: Arshdeep Singha and Deepak Chahar rocked South Africa by five wickets in the power play. Chahar got the ball rolling for India with the wicket of Proteas captain Temba Bavuma in the last ball of the opening left. Arshdeep then sent Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw and David Miller over in the second to rattle the visitors. Tristan Stubbs also perished in the third over, while Chahar overtook his second. India won the toss and chose to bowl against South Africa in the first T20I at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. India makes four changes from the third T20I against Australia, with Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal giving way to Deepak Chahar, Rishabh Pant, Arshdeep Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav stole the show in the T20I final against Australia last week, and management will hope the batters can continue with the same momentum, especially with the T20 World Cup kicking off in less than a month. time. However, the focus will be on India’s bowling attack, which has come under scrutiny for leaky runs, especially in the death overs. (LIVE SCORING CARD)
