Pitch Report:

“Lovely stadium. The weather is pretty good and they say there will be no rain today. As far as the dimensions are concerned the longest hit is straight – 76m. It’s around 64-66m square,” opines Pommie Mbangwa. “We had three beauties when India played Australia. This one is another. Nice even covering of grass, but it’s very very firm. Lots of runs are scored on Indian pitches and this is no different. Because there is grass there might be some help with the new ball for pacers up front and there is a bit of dew, so the captains will have a watch. I don’t think the captains think much these days, they are comfortable chasing even when they are under pressure, so I expect no different today,” adds Ajit Agarkar

 Toss: India won the toss and opt to field first. Rohit: We are gonna bowl first. It was a good wicket when we played here last time. Bit of green covering but it’s gonna be a good batting track. Very important to continue to do what you’re doing and keep that momentum in this format. The very healthy atmosphere in the group and we also want to make sure to tick all the boxes so far we have been doing good and we just want to continue to do that. Hardik and Bhuvi are rested from the last series. Pant and Arshdeep come in for them. Bumrah and Chahal miss out. Deepak Chahar and Ashwin are back.

Bavuma: We probably would have fielded first as well. Good going over the last couple of months. This is an important series for us and we want to continue all the good work. Guys always enjoy the India trip, the energy of the guys is up again, and nice to be back in action after a couple of months. Different conditions to Australia but in terms of match practice, it is a great opportunity.

India Team Injuries/Availability: Mohammed Shami hasn’t traveled for the first T20I and is still out after recently missing the Australia series due to covid. Deepak Hooda too is not ready due to a back injury. India will be without Bhuvneshwar and Hardik Pandya in this series, who will undergo conditioning-related training at the NCA in Bengaluru in the lead-up to next month’s World Cup.
Hardik is not available, these three games offer Pant the chance to prove he has more to offer to this Indian side than just his left-handedness, as the team has shown a tendency to prefer Dinesh Karthik over him in recent games. Yuzvendra Chahal, who has had the wood over the left-handed Quinton de Kock in T20s, will also look for an upturn in form following ordinary outings against Australia.

South Africa Team Injuries/Availability: Bavuma returns after a three-month layoff, courtesy of an elbow injury that he sustained on South Africa’s previous tour of India in June.
Wayne Parnell, who picked a five-wicket haul in his last T20I in August, could trouble India’s right-hander-dominated top-order, who’ve all had issues against left-arm pace. On the batting front, South Africa will hope Quinton de Kock and David Miller can take the lead in blunting India’s in-form spinner Axar Patel owing to their match-up superiority.
