Dharamsala: Team India on Friday reached Dharamsala for the opening game of their three-match T20I series against South Africa at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association’s stadium on Sunday.
The Proteas had arrived in Dharamsala on September 9. Dharamsala is the first venue for their tour of India which includes a three-match Test series that will be played after the T20Is.
