India brought smiles back on the faces of their fans with a T20I series win over Australia, burying the disappointment of an underwhelming Asia Cup campaign in the process.

India suffered a four-wicket loss in a high-scoring encounter at Mohali last Tuesday but bounced back with a strong display in a rain-curtailed match in Nagpur on Friday. And in the series decider in Hyderabad on Sunday, both Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli struck match-winning fifties after yet another vital spell from Axar Patel as the Men in Blue ended the series on a high with a six-wicket victory.

And now Rohit Sharma and Co turn their focus to their next assignment — a three-match T20I series against South Africa starting Wednesday, their last matches in the format before the T20 World Cup gets underway in Australia next month.

Both teams had locked horns in a five-match series in the same format earlier this year, with Rishabh Pant filling in as skipper after Rohit Sharma was rested and KL Rahul was injured. The series, which took place right after the IPL, ended in a 2-2 stalemate with the fifth and final game in Bengaluru witnessing just 3.3 overs of action before the rain gods decided to interfere.

South Africa were 2-0 up in that series before the Men in Blue fought back admirably to go level with the Proteas. Temba Bavuma’s men, however, will look to go one step further and claim their second T20I series win on Indian soil this time around.

Ahead of the series opener, we take a look at the live streaming, telecast and other match-related details:
