New Delhi: India played their first T20I against South Africa on Thursday and it was a dreamy game for the hosts as they dominate it from the very first over.
After choosing to bowl first, Deepak Chahar opened the attack and got himself first wicket by the end of the over. It was South Africa captain Temba Bavuma who became the victim of Chahar on sixth ball and the delivery left him stunned.
