So, even the change of format or the change of captain is not helping South Africa as JP Duminy who is T20I captain has lost the first match against India by a margin of 28 runs. After winning the toss, he chose to bowl and it was expected as the chasing team has won on the last four T20I matches at the Wanderers.
But the team was upset as AB De Villiers has suffered a Knee injury and he will no longer be part of the squad. The whole team had inexperienced players. the wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen, who featured in the ODI series, and the fast bowler Junior Dala grabbed more attention.
India who batted first scored 203/5 and Dhawan top-scored for India. South Africa who chased ended 28 runs short and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar took his first 5 wicket haul. The second T20I match will take place on 21st, 9:30 pm IST.
