Dharamsala - South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has given a surprise spin warning ahead of its first ever Twenty20 in India on Friday.

Du Plessis says the Imran Tahir-led spin attack has changed the way South Africa plays "in the white-ball format," and its spinners can win limited-over games for the team.

The spinners have come to prominence since pace bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel are being rested for the three T20s, though they will figure in the five one-day internationals and four tests to follow.

Du Plessis, who along with ODI captain AB de Villiers, Tahir, Albie Morkel and JP Duminy, has featured regularly in the Indian Premier League, feels the experience of playing in that will help, too.
