South Africa Tour of India 2019 has been started from 15th September but unfortunately, the opening match of this bilateral series between India vs South Africa was washed out due to rain.
The second T20I is scheduled on 18th September at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali 7:00 pm local time.
After the first T20I ended in a washout, India would contest the first home game since March 2019 against a new South Africa.
In an effort to boost new talent, India and Rahul and Deepak Chahar, Washington Sundar and Krunal Pandya have continued the series against South Africa. While Hardik Pandya returned after his break for the West Indies Tour, regulars like Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and MS Dhoni are not part of the 15-strong team.
Rishabh Pant will once again be India’s goalkeeper batsman and his head coach and captain are expected to make better decisions. India’s wrist-spin duo Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have been left out to strengthen the lower-order batting.
South Africa hopes to start a new era with a win over a strong Indian unit. Under the leadership of Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje, Temba Bavuma, Junior Dala, Beuran Hendricks and Jon-Jon Smuts, who did not participate in the 2019 World Cup, were selected to test their qualifications.
