India defeated Bangladesh by eight wickets in the previous game on this ground. After winning the toss, the Men in Blue elected to bowl first. Yuzvendra Chahal’s 2/28 helped the Indian team limit their opponents to 153/6 in 20 overs.

The Men in Blue will need to work as a cohesive unit and be consistent with both bat and ball. South Africa, on the other hand, will be hoping to win this match and complete the series.
