IND vs SA 1st T20I Live: Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar rock South Africa.© AFP
IND vs SA, the first T20I live score update: South Africa was horrified by India’s pace attack after being hit at the bat. Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Chahar and Harshal Patel have shared six wickets in the first 10 matches of the South African innings so far. Arshdeep struck three times on either side of Chahar’s first and third strikes, leaving South Africa teetering at 9-5. Harshal Patel was also hit after Aiden Markram and Wayne Parnell tried to revive South Africa’s innings. He sacked Mark Ram in form, disappointing the visitors six. Chahar had earlier opened the scoring for India with Proteas captain Temba Bavuma’s wicket. Arshdeep then unsettled the visitors by firing Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw and David Miller in the second inning. Tristan Stubbs also died in the third, while Chahar got the second. India made four changes from their third T20I match against Australia, with Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal making way for Deepak Chahar, Rishabh Pant, Arshdeep Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin.
