After winning the toss, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli decided to bat first citing to test the batting ahead of the T20 World Cup. As compared to the last T20I in Mohali, India made no changes in the squad, but the South African skipper, Quinton de Kock decided to make one change as Beuran Hendricks came in the squad to replace Anrich Nortje.

Five runs later, Kagiso Rabada dismissed Kohli too to leave India reeling at 68 for 3 from 63 for 1.
