India vs South Africa 1st T20I Highlights

India won the first match of the three-match series by eight wickets as Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul hit half-centuries while Arshdeep took 3-32 in his four overs and Deepak Chahar bowled well too. 

While chasing a total of 107, India did not start well at all as the South African bowlers were on fire and reduced India to 16-1 in the first six overs which is the lowest powerplay score for the men in blue in the history of T20Is. Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli failed big time. However, Suryakumar Yadav came with an attacking internet and changed the courts of the game. 

Surya, alongside KL Rahul, added an unbeaten 93 off just 63 balls to win the game for India. 

Earlier in the evening, after losing the toss and being asked to bat first, South Africa were reduced to 9-5 before Aiden Markram and Wayne Parnell provided some sort of momentum to the innings. However, it was Keshav Maharaj with his 41 that got South Africa past 100 and made sure that the team did not get bowled out. 

IND vs SA Player of the Match: Arshdeep Singh 

Arshdeep Singh was awarded the Player of the Match for his brilliant spell in which he picked three major wickets of Quinton de Kock, David Miller and Riley Rossouw in just one over to break the back of the South African batting lineup.

IND vs SA 1st T20I Live Updates:

 
Anrich Nortje is into the attack 
 
Ball 1 Wicket!! That was a decent ball outside off and Kohli went for the big shot anyways and gets caught by de Kock behind the stumps as he managed to only get an edge. 
 
Ball 2 Dot ball as it hits Surya on the body 
 
Ball 3 Six!! The attack is the best form of defence and Surya went for an all-out attack and gets a top edge that goes over the third-man for a six 
 
Ball 4 Six!! Nortje lacks in length and gets flicked over deep fine leg for a huge six 
 
Ball 5 Huge appeal for LWB but once again it is about the impact and it seems to be outside off or umpire's call as the ball did hit Surya on the pads who was going across to play the shot. South Africa have gone for the review, but it seems like they will lose it as it is bat first 
 
Ball 6 A dot ball will end an eventful over
