IND vs RSA: The 2nd ODI between India and South Africa is all set to take place today at St George’s Park of Gqeberha. The Men in Blue led by Wicketkeeper KL Rahul have already managed to take a 1-0 lead in the series thanks to a comfortable win in the 1st ODI against The Proteas.

Having opted to bat first, Aiden Markram led South Africa would have hoped to set a target of 300+ runs for India but instead they got all out for an embarrassing 116 runs and the batting unit of the Proteas had no answer against the the assault of the 2 young Indian Fast Bowlers- Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan as both of them ran through the entire batting unit of the South Africans.

Avesh Khan ended the match with career best figures of 4-27 but Arshdeep Singh was even more impressive as he took his maiden 5 – wicket hall against the Proteas and finished the match with figures of 5-37 next to his name. This was his 1st ever international 5-wicket hall and the best bowling performance of his career as well.

Chasing a target of 117 runs, it was a walk in the park for the Indian batters as the duo of debutant Sai Sudharsan (55 runs from 43 balls) and Shreyas Iyer (52 runs from 45 balls) helped India get over the line and take a lead of 1-0 in the 3-match ODI series. South Africa would have to win in the 2nd ODI by any means if they want to stay alive in the series. This article will provide you detailed information regarding Indian Players to watch out for, weather forecast, H2H stats and other details for the 2nd ODI.

Sai Sudharsan made his international debut for The Men in Blue against the The Proteas in the 1st ODI and he had a debut to remember as he played an unbeaten knock of 55 runs from 43 balls at a strike rate of 127.90 and along with Shreyas Iyer helped India get over the line in the 1st game. He would like to remain consistent in today’s 2nd match and help The Men in Blue seal the ODI series.

Shreyas Iyer is not going to be available for the 2nd and the 3rd ODI as he is going to participate in the intra-squad game before the start of the test series against South Africa and in his absence, Rajat Patidar is expected to play. The 30 year old is the most like-to-like replacement for Shreyas Iyer and has performed exceptionally well for RCB in the IPL. However, injuries have not been kind to him but he is completely fit for today’s game and is expected to make his International debut for India against the Proteas in the 2nd ODI.

Kuldeep Yadav


Kuldeep Yadav is expected to play the role of the main spinner for the 2nd ODI along with Axar Patel. He managed to get a 5 wicket hall against the Proteas in the 3rd T20i and finished with figures of 1-3 in his spell of 2.3 overs and once again, he would be expected to trouble the South African batters with his spin in the 2nd ODI.

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh did not perform well in the T20i series against South Africa however, in the 1st ODI, the Punjab Kings bowler ran through the entire batting unit of the South Africans along with Avesh Khan as he took his maiden 5 – wicket hall against the Proteas and registered figures of 5-37 next to his name. He needs to remain consistent in the 2nd ODI as well as the conditions of Gqeberha are going to assist the seam bowlers and the Indian team would rely on him to get those crucial breakthroughs.

Avesh Khan

Avesh Khan, along with Arshdeep Singh, troubled the South African batters in the first ODI, finishing with career-best figures of 4-27, and he is anticipated to provide a serious challenge against The Proteas. India would be relying on him to pick up wickets and support Arshdeep Singh from the other end.
