The first T20 between India and South Africa will be played at Kingsmead in Durban. Not many big scores are seen on this ground. The pitch is also quite slow. There will be no effect of dew in this match. In such a situation, the team winning the toss can decide to bat first.
Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal can open for India
Shubhman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal can open the innings in the first T20. Actually, this decision can be taken due to left and right hand combination. In such a situation, Rituraj Gaikwad will not get a chance in the playing eleven. Shreyas Iyer will play at number three and captain Suryakumar Yadav at number four. After this Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja can be seen. In bowling, Ravi Bishnoi can be seen in action along with Mohammad Siraj, Arshdeep Singh and Mukesh Kumar.
South Africa’s fast bowling looks weak
Langi Nagidi is out of this series due to injury. Whereas Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje are already not part of this series. In such a situation, Gerald Coetzee, Andile Phehlukwayo and Nandre Berger can be seen in action in the first T20. Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller and captain Aiden Markram are in batting.
