Indian bowlers began impressively in opposition to South Africa within the ongoing first T20I match in Thiruvananthapuram. Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar had been spectacular with their opening spells and folded opponent’s half lineup on simply 9 runs within the first 15 deliveries of the innings.
As soon as once more, Indian captain Rohit Sharma received the toss and invited South Africa to bat first on the Greenfield Worldwide Stadium. India rested their key pacer Jasprit Bumrah and changed him with Deepak and Arshadeep got here in for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. After seeing a lot grass on the pitch, it was apparent that the pacers will probably be dominating the primary T20I.
Watch: Deepak Chahar rips off stumps
Deepak bowled the primary over and dismissed South African captain Temba Bavuma on the final supply. He obtained further tempo and bounce from the primary supply and troubled Bavuma on the fourth and fifth supply the place the ball was seaming with out-swing. On his subsequent supply, he shocked Bavuma with an in-swinger which ripped the off stump.

Arshdeep then outdid Deepak’s begin with three eye-watching wickets within the subsequent over. He bowled out Quinton de Kock on the second supply with an nearly full-length supply. He conceded 4 and bowled two wides on subsequent deliveries and appeared just a little out of focus.
However he then dismissed Rilee Rossouw on the fifth supply with a good-length ball that caught the bat’s exterior edge and settled in Rishabh Pant’s gloves. He outdid Deepak’s supply to Bavuma on the final ball and bamboozled David Miller on the golden duck.
Within the third over, Deepak dismissed younger batter Tristan Stubbs on a golden duck and South Africa had been struggling at 9/5 in simply 2.3 overs. Aiden Markram and Wayne Parnell then averted the additional fall by placing a 33-run partnership for the sixth wicket. Harshal Patel dismissed Markram on 25 runs within the eighth over and South Africa had been struggling at 48/6 after 10 overs.
