India vs South Africa: Arshdeep Singh was in top form in the 1st T20I© BCCI
Arshdeep Singh returned to India colours in fabulous fashion as he produced a grand show of swing bowling, sending back three South African batters in an over to break the back of the Proteas top order. Arshdeep came in to bowl the second over of the innings in the 1st T20I at Thiruvananthapuram after Deepak Chahar had already given India a good start by sending back captain Temba Bavuma.
He first removed the dangerous Quinton de Kock on the second delivery of the over as the keeper-batter played on for 1.
He bowled a great away swinger to Rilee Rossouw on the fifth delivery. The left-hander played a drive away from his body and got a faint edge, which was caught by Rishabh Pant.
He completely bamboozled David Miller on the next delivery, clean bowling the veteran batter to leave the tourists gasping for breath.

Deepak Chahar came back to pick up the wicket of Tristan Stubbs in the next over as the Proteas lost 5 wickets in less than three overs in what was a calamitous start for them.
