The first IND vs SA T20I match will be played at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium

As we can figure out from the given statistics, the batters will be in for a tough day at the office in this game. The average first innings total is 156 and teams batting first have crossed the 160-run mark only twice.

Hence, anything above 160 will be a challenging score to defend in this venue. Besides that, teams chasing and teams batting first have won equal number of matches, which shows that toss is not as big a factor in Delhi as it is in some other, coastal venues of India, like Mumbai.

In terms of the kind of bowlers who will be successful, it is difficult to predict. Among the top ten wicket-takers on this track, there are six spinners – but only a couple of them are in top six.

Having said that, we can expect spinners to extract turn on this track. India’s Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel have done well on this ground, while Kuldeep Yadav can also be handy if the men in blue play three spinners. Meanwhile, the Proteas will be dependent on Tabraiz Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj to deliver the goods.
