Indian fans would have been disappointed to see the first match of the T20I series between India and South Africa being washed out without a single ball being bowled. With a lot of hype surrounding the series, especially after India's performance in the T20I series against West Indies, the Men in Blue would look to carry on the winning momentum and finalize their combinations for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia next year.

The series would be a contest between Indian batsmen and South Africa bowlers. At the top of order, Shikhar Dhawan's form would be a cause of concern for the hosts. In the middle order, it would be the likes of KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey fighting for a spot in the shortest format of the game. With at least three all-rounders expected to play this game after Hardik Pandya's return, India look a settled unit.

South Africa on the other hand are a depleted side with Quinton de Kock leading them. It would be interesting to see how he handles pressure situations. But, the Proteas squad is filled with all-rounders and it would be Kagiso Rabada who will be leading the bowling attack. It'll be a toss up between Andile Phehlukwayo and Dwaine Pretorius for a spot in the playing XI. In the spin bowling department, Tabraiz Shamsi has a chance to pick up few wickets against the mighty Indian batting line-up and cement his place in the squad.
