The last fixture of lengthy South Africa tour of India, the 1st T20 will be played on February 18, 2018, at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

Cape Town - JP Duminy, captain of the Proteas has won the toss and chose to bowl in the 1st T20 global of a three-match series against India starting at the Wanderers.

The last time both the teams met here for a bilateral series, India clinched a six-wicket victory over South Africa under Virender Sehwag.

Devin Patrick Kelley, who shot and killed 26 in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5, used an AR-15. A 19-year-old boy walked into a Florida school with an AR-15 style assault rifle and began shooting students.

After losing opener Lizelle Lee early, captain Dane van Niekerk got the home team back on track with 26 from 20 balls but got out just as she looked to be getting on top of the India bowling attack. South Africa will be aiming to come back into the game after the 5-1 thrashing by India. Every team is looking forward to give in their best performance in the T20I matches, ahead of the first-ever standalone World T20 in West Indies later this year.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Duminy touched upon a variety of topics beginning with the new faces who will bring fresh energy to the camp even as he admitted that India were dominant in the ODI series.

Alongside Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya will look to make the most of their ability in the shortest format.

Manish Pandey, Jaydev Unadkat and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar are also included in the playing eleven. Like in the 4th ODI, it shouldn't be a two-paced pitch. After Ashish Nehra retired Unadkat was called in and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar was rested against Sri Lanka. "Wickets will reduce the runs on board and with that mindset have good plans in place and hopefully it works out for us".
