 IND vs SA Toss Prediction 

The team that wins the toss here is more likely to chase. This is because seam bowlers could get more assistance early on in the game due to the moisture present underneath the surface. Moreover, DLS method could also come into play and that generally favors the side batting second.

 IND vs SA Weather Report 

There is a good chance of showers accompanied by thunderstorms on Sunday evening. The meteorological department has predicted plenty of cloud cover throughout the match. Temperature is expected to be around 16-17 degrees Celsius and humidity around 80%.

 IND vs SA Pitch Condition 

Australia vs New Zealand in 2016 is the most recent T20 international played at Dharamsala. It was a World T20 game where New Zealand managed to defend their moderate total of 142. The pitch had something in it for both batsmen and bowlers and one can expect a similar surface for this game as well.

Team NEWS:

 IND Team News 

India's 15-man T20I squad has a few big names missing. The likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have all been rested for this IND vs SA T20 series, thus presenting opportunities to the less experienced players like Navdeep Saini, Deepak Chahar, Rahul Chahar, Washington Sundar and Khaleel Ahmed. All-rounder Hardik Pandya has returned and will join his brother Krunal Pandya in the squad. MS Dhoni, however, continues to make himself unavailable for selection.

 SA Team News 
South Africa have left out Faf du Plessis from their 14-man T20I squad and have given Quinton de Kock the responsibility to lead the team in this series. The visitors have appointed Rassie van der Dussen as de Kock's deputy for the series. The selectors have roped in three uncapped players in Bjorn Fortuin, Anrich Nortje and Temba Bavuma. JJ Smuts, meanwhile, has been ruled out of the series after having failed to pass a fitness test. Smuts has been replaced in the squad by all-rounder George Linde.

Key Players:

 IND Key Players: 

 Rohit Sharma: 
The opening batsman is India's leading run-getter in the T20 internationals with 2422 runs which includes 4 hundreds and 17 fifties. Rohit had cracked 106 off just 66 balls in the T20I against South Africa at this ground in 2015 and the team will want him to deliver a similar performance on Sunday.

 Virat Kohli: 
The India skipper is always a key player for his team irrespective of the format. He has scored the most runs for India in T20Is after Rohit Sharma and has 21 half-centuries under his belt. Kohli was also the best batsman for his side in the recent T20I series against the West Indies.

 Navdeep Saini: 
The fast bowler has been impressive in the game's shortest format. He finished as the best bowler in the T20I series against the Windies with five wickets and an economy rate of 7.09. Navdeep is likely to bowl in the powerplay and he will be expected to make a few early strikes.

 SA Key Players: 

 Reeza Hendricks: 
The opening batsman seems to be in good nick at the moment with back-to-back fifties while playing for South Africa A against India A. Hendricks had also topped the runs charts in the home T20I series against Sri Lanka earlier this year.

 Quinton de Kock: 
He has been appointed as the team's captain for this series and he will be looking to lead from the front. The left-handed batsman is one of South Africa's leading run-scorers in the format and he struck a half-century in his previous international innings - two months ago against Australia in the World Cup.

 Kagiso Rabada: 
The South African quick will pose the biggest threat to the Indian batsmen in this T20I series. He has picked 25 wickets in the 19 matches he has played in the format and the onus will be on him to rattle India's top-order in the powerplay overs.

Team Forms:

IND  Team Form

India have won four and lost as many T20 internationals out of the eight they have played so far this year. Their most recent T20I assignment was a three-match series against the West Indies which came last month. The first two of those were played at Lauderhill and the third at Guyana and India went on to win all the three matches. Prior to that series, however, India lost 1-2 to New Zealand in New Zealand and 0-2 to Australia at home.

SA Recent Team Form

South Africa have been faring well of late in the shortest format of the game. They have four wins, a tie and a loss from the six T20 internationals they have played this year. The Proteas have won their last four bilateral T20I series on the bounce; they beat Zimbabwe 2-0 and then Australia in a one-off match before beating Pakistan 2-1 and Sri Lanka 3-0 in back-to-back home series. The only 20-over game that South Africa have lost this year was against Pakistan in February at Centurion.

All the best
