India may like to strengthen their batting and bring in Suryakumar Yadav in place of Venkatesh Iyer. We do see a place for Ruturaj Gaikwad as well. But it seems, they stick to the same playing 11.
The former Indian skipper looked good during his knock of 51 but unfortunately couldn’t carry on. Kohli is generally very good at converting 50s into 100 and a big one should not be far away.
Dhavan made a return to the team with a blazing 50. He got India off to a flier and set up the chase beautifully. However, he lost his wicket at a crucial time after which India slumped to defeat. Dhawan though will be keen to play a bigger inning in the next game.
Chahal didn’t have a great game in the first match but the wicket is getting slow and the conditions will suit him. He could be a trump card for India. Overall, the team form is good ,but the batting looks a bit concerning.
India will look to bounce back in the series as they take on South Africa in the second ODI today afternoon.
