India Vs South Africa, 2nd ODI: Match Preview, Pitch Report, Playing 11

The second ODI of the 3-match series will be on October 9 and it can decide the fate of the series. South Africa has already won the last match so they will look to seal the series for them and Shikhar Dhawan Led’s side will look for a comeback India will look for a comeback and take the series to the deciding game.

South Africa

Despite the victory, South Africa has several areas where they can improve in the second ODI, particularly their spin bowling. While Keshav Maharaj did well with the ball, his spin bowling partner Tabraiz Shamsi had a bad day and was taken to the cleaners.

They would also like their top order to score a few more runs and not leave too much work for the likes of David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen, who are both in excellent form at the moment.

SA Likely Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (wk.), Janneman Malan, Temba Bavuma (cap), Aiden Markram, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi


Deepak Chahar, who reportedly injured his ankle during training, is unlikely to play the rest of the series, dealing a huge setback to the Indian team. Given the Indian team management’s support for the kids to do well in the second ODI, changes to the Indian XI for this game are unlikely.
