India won the first match of the T20 series against South Africa
Rahul Dravid’s team disappointed at the Asia Cup — India, being the main favorite of the tournament in the UAE, failed even to reach the final of the championship. But after the Asia T20 Cup, the India national team rehabilitated itself by taking a three-match T20 series against Australia to its asset. And on the eve, Rohit Sharma and the squad again pleased with the quality of the game — India won the first match of the T20 series against South Africa.
It should be noted that during the whole match, Rahul Dravid’s team controlled everything that was happening on the field. As a result, India outplayed its opponent with a handicap of 8 wickets. With this victory, the Indian team confirmed the confidence of the bookmakers because, before the start of the meeting, it was India that was quoted as the favorite.
India and South Africa will have to play two more matches in the T20 format. After the end of this series, the teams will have three more battles in the ODI format.
Do not forget that India and South Africa were in the same group at the T20 World Cup in Australia. Bangladesh and Pakistan are also in the same group as India and South Africa.
