SA vs IND 1st ODI Preview

The T20I series ended 1-1 and its now time for the ODI leg of the South African tour for the men in blue. The ODI series will also not see the likes of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli and again a fairly young squad is set to play.

South Africa:

The Proteas are looking strong on paper with a strong batting lineup. They were unfortunate to lose the T20I series but will surely fancy their chances in the ODI series against a young Indian side.

With the bat, Reeza Hendricks and Tony De Zorzi are expected to open the innings followed by Rassie Van Der Dussen and Skipper Aiden Markram in the middle order. David Miller and Henrich Klassen will do the finishing duties.

With the ball, their pace attack is a bit inexperienced with the likes of Nandre Burger, Lizaad Williams and Ottniel Baartman. The duo of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi will handle the spin department.


India will be playing its first ODI after the forgetful World Cup Final and KL Rahul is all set to lead the young bunch of players in this series. It will be a good opportunity for the youngster to leave their mark. Ruturaj Gaikwad is not likely to play this game due to fever.

With the bat, Rajit Patidar and Sai Sudharsan are likely to open the innings followed by Shreyas Iyer. KL Rahul and Tilak Varma will be the key men in the middle order. Rinku Singh and Sanju Samson will do the finishing duties.

With the ball, the trio of Mukesh Kumar, Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh will be their main pacers. Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav are likely to be their two spinners. Yuzi Chahal could get a game as well.

South Africa vs India Pitch Report 2023

Average 1st Innings score: 275

Average Total score: 190

(The average score based on the overall ODI matches played on the venue)

The beautiful New Wanderers Stadium will host the 1st ODI of the series. It also hosted the final T20I as well. The pitch is expected to be good one to bat on. Bowlers will get some assistance from the new ball but overall, a run fest can be expected. Anything over 300+ will be a good total.
