India vs South Africa Highlights, 1st T20: Match called off due to rain in Durban

India vs South Africa Highlights, 1st T20: IND vs SA, India's tour of South Africa began on a shaky note as the first T20 international was called off due to heavy rains in Durban. Cricket South Africa waited till the last moment as per the rules, but rains were showing no indication of stopping and finally the cricket administration decided to call off the match. 

The young Team India is welcomed by rains in Durban and the toss for the first T20 international is delayed. The covers are on the pitch and fans are praying to the rain gods as they want the match to start as soon as possible. 

Suryakumar Yadav led team India will take on the Proteas for the first out of the three-match T20I series. 

The Indians come into the match on a high, having won the series against the Aussies in their own backyard. However, Surya and company won't take too much comfort from that win on home soil, as it came against a depleted Aussie line-up in the immediate aftermath of the World Cup, and the batting-friendly conditions in India helped their batsmen's style.

Playing in South Africa, however, will be a different ball game altogether as the swinging and seaming conditions in the SENA country are unlikely to offer any solace to the Indian batsmen, especially batsmen like Shreyas Iyer who could once again be tested on his vulnerability to the short ball.

Meanwhile, there will be an opportunity for some players to simply seal their place in the India T20 XI ahead of the 2024 T20 World Cup, which is less than 6 months away. Players such as Rinku Singh, Jitesh Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer have all shown glimpses of good form but will need to continue their good form to make their case to the selectors.

Meanwhile, the Proteas will be without the services of experienced pacer Kagiso Rabada due to injury, while other pacers like Gerald Coetzee, Marco Jansen and Lungi Ngidi will return to their franchises after the second T20I to play domestic 4-day cricket.

India vs South Africa: When and where to watch?

India vs South Africa's first T20 international will start at 7:30 PM as per the India time and the match is expected to go on till 10:30 midnight.

India vs South Africa's first T20 international will be broadcast LIVE on Star Sports Network on television. For live-streaming of the India vs South Africa first T20I, the users can tune in to Disney+ Hotstar mobile application and website.

India vs South Africa Live: Opener question for India

India vs South Africa Live: Apart from the skipper, India is faced with three more wonderful options for the opening position. Shubman Gill has shown in class in the T20 format but didn't have a very great time in the ICC World Cup 2023. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad gave some strong performances for India in the Australia series. While Gaikwad showed calmness and his ability to amass big runs, Jaiswal displayed attacking cricket as he finished the series with a strike rate of 168.29.

That balance is really important when you play this sport," Suryakumar Yadav said.

India vs South Africa Live: Durban pitch report

India vs South Africa Live: The Kingsmead stadium pitch is known for helping bowlers, particularly seamers who get extra movement from the moist track. Spinners usually struggle here. However, batters can score a lot of runs once they get used to the pitch. The team winning the toss will probably bat first to try and set a big score. 

India have an excellent T20 record on this ground. The Men in Blue have played 5 T20Is here as of now and are yet to lose any of those. Overall, there have been 18 T20Is so far in this venue; 8 teams have won while batting first and 8 teams while chasing. One match was tied whereas one match did not produce any results.

India vs South Africa Live: Speaking ahead of the 1st T20 encounter in Durban, Surya said, "I think the key to success on such wickets will be to be yourself. The boys have prepared well.
