India vs South Africa T20 Records: The India-South Africa T20 series will begin with the match to be held at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium on Thursday. This will be only the third time during this five-match tournament that these two countries will play a series on Indian soil in the shortest format of the game. India’s record is not particularly good against the guests in their own homes. Team India has never been able to beat the hosts on its own soil in the T20 series.
India won only one T20 International
The team, captained by KL Rahul, has to face South Africa but when India takes the field, it will be a challenge to register a second T20 win against the visiting team. Yes, India has won only one T20 match against South Africa at home. When the Proteas came to India in September 2019, the team led by Virat Kohli defeated them by seven wickets in Mohali.
India vs South Africa: Six T20s were played between the two teams
In the year 2015, the first T20 series was played between the two countries in India. This series was won by South Africa 2-0. The African team was commanded on the shoulders of Faf du Plessis, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni was leading India. The third and last match of the series could not be played. After this, the visiting team came to India in 2019. At that time the Dharamsala T20 match was washed out due to rain. India won the Mohali Test but in the third and final match of the series played in Bangalore, South Africa made a strong comeback, defeating Virat Kohli’s team by nine wickets and ended the series 1-1.
