David Miller and Rassie van der Dussen hit fiery half-centuries to lead South Africa to a seven-goal win over India in the first T20 International in a five-match series here on Thursday.
Miller (64 out of play) and Van der Dussen (75 out of play) chased the mammoth 212 and shared an invincible 131 shots on the fourth goal to transport guests home with complete ease.
In India, Axar Patel (1/40), Bhuveneshwar Kumar (1/43) and Harshal Patel (1/43) scalped one goal each.
Earlier, Ishan Kishan smashed 76 of the 48 balls and strengthened India to 211 to four against South Africa in the first T20 International tournament here on Thursday.
Shreyas Iyer (36), Captain Rishabh Pant (29) and his deputy Hardik Pandya (31 is out) have also usefully contributed to the Indian shifts.
Here’s how Twitter responded to Proteas’ victory:
This series is supposed to be difficult and South Africans assure it. Team India needs to solve bowling, especially the first 5 and last 5 matches! #INDvSA

You can take a lot of positives from this Proteas win. Good team balance with 2 spinners and 2 versatile players. David Miller in goal 9 in overtime, Pretorius comes in overtime, Parnell and Nortje return, Rassie now gets better when he’s hit. #INDvsSA – Zaahier Adams (@ZaahierAdams) June 9, 2022
Another feather in the cap of this incredibly brave Proteas party. Incredible victory in 38 ° C heat, a stunning crowd of 41,000 people in Delhi to the point of silence. Wake up, these guys deserve your support.
