Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar Destroyed South Africa for Five Wickets in 11 Seconds.
South Africa was reduced to 9 for 5 after Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar swung new balls, their lowest score after losing the first five wickets and the lowest score by any side against India in a T20I.
After India captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl first, Chahar and Arshdeep made the most of the pitch's grass to destroy South Africa's top order.
Four South Africa's top six batters went out for ducks, three off the opening delivery, as Chahar and Arshdeep bowled with a swing.
In the first over, Chahar set up South African skipper Temba Bavuma (0) superbly. He used three out swinging balls to get the right-hander out and then bowled an inswinging ball to hit the right-hander's stumps.
Arshdeep Singh, the left-arm bowler, got the big fish de Kock when he played one onto his stumps.
Deepak Chahar dismissed the dangerous Tristian Stubbs for another first-ball duck in the third over as the right-hander edged the ball to the third man.
