Tip Summary

  • South Africa have taken the lead of 1-0 by winning the first ODI by nine runs.
  • The middle-order batter Heinrich Klaasen took home the player of the match award home for his knock of not out 74 runs.
  • India need to have a serious discussion over their batting line-up for the second ODI.

It will be a do-or-die match on Sunday for India as they will cross swords with South Africa in the second One Day International. The host made a poor start to the three-match series as they lost the first ODI by nine runs. It was a disappointing batting performance as India failed to chase a target of 250 runs in a rain-curtailed match. South African bowlers also deserve the credit for keeping their calm in a tricky run-chase. 

Playing the second One Day International, India will be hoping for a better batting performance from their top five batters. South Africa, on the other hand, will fancy continuing the momentum. 

India vs South Africa Tips

Player of the Match: David Miller

Player Of The Match

  • Tournament: India vs South Africa ODI 2022

David Miller has been the revelation for South Africa on the Indian tour so far. The 33-year-old initially made headlines with his heart-winning performance in the second T20 International. When the Proteas had to chase 238 runs in 20 overs, the middle-order batter returned with a knock of not out 106 runs. Miller is now continuing his dream form in the 50-over format as well. Playing the first ODI, the power-hitter took his team to victory by nine runs. South Africa looked in trouble in the first innings following a collapse of the batting line-up. However, Miller stood his ground as he returned with a knock of not out 75 runs off 63 balls. His unbeaten partnership of 139 runs with Heinrich Klaasen was the highlight of Proteas’ batting innings. Moreover, the visitors will be extremely pleased with Miller’s purple patch with the bat, as the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is just a couple of days back.

Kolkata Knight Riders’ skipper Shreyas Iyer is considered the next big thing in the Indian cricket fraternity. The batter has a fine record in One Day International as he is making a serious claim to be included in the squad for the ODI next cup scheduled next year. Iyer has featured in 31 ODIs so far, scoring 1158 runs at an impressive average of 42.89. He was one of the positives for the host in the first One Day International with a knock of 50 runs. When the top five batters failed to perform, the Mumbai-born chipped in with a much-needed fifty. He is expected to continue with the good performance and take the Men in Blue home on Sunday.

The seamer Lungi Ngidi should be the pick of the bowler for the visitors on Sunday. The veteran ended up as the highest wicket-taker in the first ODI with three wickets under his belt at an economy rate of 6.5. He will be again hoping to make the same impact to help his team take an unassailable lead in the three-match series.
