|🤔 What||IND v SA 1st T20I|
|📅 When||15th September, Sunday|
India-SA ready to lock horns in an electrifying series
India host the Proteas in a 3-match T20I series starting at Dharamsala. The Men in Blue will be coming into this series after whitewashing West Indies in T20Is, ODIs and Tests.
However, they will be without the services of quite a few players including Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Weaknesses: Death bowling in absence of Bumrah
South Africa are on their first assignment after a massively disappointing World Cup 2019. But they have fared well in the game’s shortest format. They have four wins and one loss from six T20 internationals this year.
Quinton de Kock will be leading a rather young squad in the absence of Faf du Plessis and will relish the challenge against a strong Indian side.
Strengths: Strong hitters of the ball in the line-up
Weaknesses: Inexperienced squad
We Know Cricket Hot Take 🔥
Rains are predicted all weekend in Dharamsala. The seam bowlers of the team bowling first might get some assistance from the surface if so. Deepak Chahar and Kagiso Rabada are great options in seaming conditions.

IND v SA 1st T20I Dream 11 Predictions Today 🧠
Read our Dream 11 team suggestions and expert tips to find out which player you should include in your Dream 11 team for today’s match:
🧤 Wicket Keeper: Rishabh Pant hasn’t been in the best of form lately and de Kock bats higher in the order than him. Hence, de Kock is our first-choice wicket-keeper for our Dream 11 Team.
🏏 Batsmen:Virat Kohli is the most important player for India, regardless of the format. R Sharma is the highest run-getter for India in T20Is and he will want to stamp his authority in the first game of the series itself. Reeza Hendricks is in good form having hit back-to-back fifties for SA A. Rassie van der Dussen is a powerful hitter of the ball and his role will be crucial in the SA setup and for your Dream 11 squad as well.
😎 All Rounders: Krunal Pandya is coming into this series on the back of a Player-of-the-series performance in the T20Is vs WI. Hardik Pandya is coming back into the side after an injury but the format and the ground will be to his liking. Dwaine Pretorius is a good pick for your Dream11 team as well.
🧶 Bowlers: Navdeep Saini has been impressive and his express pace will trouble the SA batting line-up. The overcast conditions will suit the likes of Deepak Chahar and Kagiso Rabada. Anrich Nortje is another pacy bowler who can pose problems for India.
