(Odisha Sports): After in all three formats against the West Indies, Team India are aiming to take on South Africa in the first T20I of the three-match series at Dharmasala Stadium here on Sunday. The Men in Blue are full with confidence following their emphatic performance in their last tour.
Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is back in the squad after he was rested for the complete Windies tour and is a certainty to feature in the playing XI against the South Africans. On the other hand there are three new faces in the form of Temba Bavuma, Bjorn Fortuin and Anrich Nortje in the South Africa squad who would be eager to perform at the big stage.
One of the things that might play a spoilsport on Sunday is the weather as rains and thunderstorms are predicted on Sunday.
