India suffered their first loss in the opening T20I against South Africa by seven wickets in Dharamsala on Friday.

After posting 199/5 on the board, thanks to a fantastic 106 from Rohit Sharma, India failed to defend the total as the Proteas chased down the target with three balls remaining.

For the visitors, JP Duminy was the star with a 34-ball 68 and AB de Villiers provided the early onslaught with a fifty as the opening batsman.

Twitterati praised the South Africans for the win but criticised India bowlers, especially spinner Axar Patel for bowling too close.

    Rohit Sharma was too slow in the beginning unlike AB. This was the difference. One plays for his place and the other for his team !
