IND vs SA – 1st ODI – Team Previews


After a dominating performance in the T20 format, team India is now ready to continue the momentum in the ODI format as well. Even after the absence of some of the big names from the team, team India still looks strong and there are already some speculations about their performance.

In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Suryakumar Yadav, team India will be dependent on Shikhar Dhawan, Shubhman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, and Sanju Samson. The team will be led by Shikhar Dhawan who holds a good record when it comes to the ODI format. Samson and Iyer are also making a comeback in the ODI format.

In the bowling section, Mohammed Siraj will be leading the pace attack with Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar. Kuldeep Yadav is also making a comeback in international cricket and to support him, Ravi Bishnoi will be focused on his spin talent.

South Africa

South Africa is likely to participate with the same squad as they played with in the T20 format. There are no big changes that are expected to happen in the team. The regular players have shown their quality of batting in the T20 format and the bowlers have done a good job in all three games.

The major concern for the team is the current form of skipper Temba Bavuma. He was unable to play a good inning for the team in all three T20s and was losing his wicket at a very early stage. His absence of form is becoming a huge issue for the middle-order of the team.

The top South African bowlers for this series are Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, and Tabraiz Shamsi. The pace attack was ferocious in the last T20 game against India and the bowlers would like to continue to maintain the momentum.
