The opening encounter was a masterclass in pace bowling from the young Indian guns, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan. They ripped through the Proteas’ batting lineup, restricting them to a modest 247/9. In response, Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer anchored the chase with resolute knocks, guiding India to a comfortable eight-wicket win.

However, the South Africans won’t go down without a fight. Playing on home soil, they will be keen to bounce back and level the series. The likes of Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma will seek to find their form with the bat, while Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi will look to exploit any chinks in the Indian armor.

India’s batting, despite the heroics of Dhawan and Iyer, looked slightly shaky in the middle overs. Virat Kohli’s continued struggle for runs remains a concern, and finding consistency down the order will be crucial for their success. The spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will also need to be at their best to contain the Proteas’ middle order.
