India VS SA 2nd ODI will be taking place on Sunday. The game begins from 1:30 pm IST onwards. The last game saw Sanju Samson giving a tough fight to the Proteas but the Proteas and their performance were too hot to handle for the men in blue. Rabada and Ngidi were top performers with the ball. Shreyas Iyer was a big positive for team India. Here is a quick preview of the second game of the series:
Indian Team Preview Before India VS SA 2nd ODI:
The Indian team is a substring one. With that being said, it doesn’t mean that it is a weak side. The names in the team are players with the potential to dominate world cricket. The last game itself was one such example. The team gave a good fight but fell short by a small margin in the end. The biggest positive was the form of Sanju Samson and Shreyas Iyer. Both these batters give the Indian team options in the middle order. The bowling was also decent. Deepak Chahar is out due to a back problem. India VS SA 2nd ODI will be a great game.
Expected Playing XI:
Shikhar Dhawan (C), Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Avesh Khan, Mohammed Siraj
SA Team Preview Before India VS SA 2nd ODI:
The South Africans will be high on confidence. They will be rooting for another victory. Henrich Klaasen is one player who loves bashing Indian bowlers. He has always shown the mettle he has against the Indian spinners. The same is the case with David Miller. South Africa was in a grim situation last game but Henrich rescued them and eventually won the game for them. KG Rabada and Lungi Ngidi will be the top guys with the ball. Shamsi was taken for runs at Lucknow so he might be replaced.
Expected Playing XI:
Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma (C), Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Marco Jansen, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi
Expected Top performer in India VS SA 2nd ODI:
David Miller, one of the most experienced batters from the South African squad is expected to have a good game. He is in the form of his life and at the peak of his career. If he gets going, no one could stop the South African team.
Shubman Gill, the rookie batter from India is also expected to have a good game. While on the pitch Shubman enjoys the game and makes sure to make every delivery count. He doesn’t make the game boring, rather he makes it look classy. The Ranchi wicket is a pitch that he will like.
