During the time the Indian team left India for South Africa, the more important part of this tour was the 3 match test series and everyone thought this is the best chance for India to end the drought of a series win in South Africa and the team was there to achieve the Final Frontier, but alas that could not happen as even after leading the series 1-0, South Africa bounced back to win the series 2-1. After this, the ODI series has announced immense significance as the Indian team will be eager to bounce back and give a great showing for all the fans.

The Three match ODI series which will be played in Paarl and Cape Town and they will not be easy to win as the South Africa team will be full of confidence and the Indian team will be less confident and the Chaos that has followed after the resignation of Virat Kohli as test captain can also affect the morale of the team. Let’s do a preview of the much anticipated ODI Series that will begin from tomorrow.

Overall preview


Even in 2018, India lost the test series 2-1 but in the ODI series that followed, Team India won the series comprehensively 5-1 with all the team members standing up for the nation and the captain Virat Kohli led from the front with 558 runs in 6 matches with 3 Centuries and completely dominated the South Africa bowling attack, Hardik Pandya was the star of the series with his finishing abilities and his handy bowling and who can forget KulCha who ripped apart the South Africa batting line-up. So, it won’t be too much to expect that this team will repeat the same performance from Three years ago with better players playing this series and a chance for new players to step up and this is also a great chance for South Africa as well to add on to the misery of Team India and win the ODI series as well. It will be a very competitive series and that’s what all the fans want.

Players to Watch Out for


Virat Kohli- The eyes of everyone not just in India but in the cricketing world will be on Virat Kohli and it can be seen as to why this is the case. ODIs are his best format of the game and the fans will hope that the burden of captaincy gone from his shoulders will make Virat the same batter he was before his slump began in 20@9. If he dominates this ODI series and hits a couple of centuries then all the talk surrounding him and Indian cricket will come to an end and all the fans will hope to see the best version of Virat Kohli.

KL Rahul- The new captain of the Indian ODI team for this series will also have a lot of attention as he would be observed not only on his captaincy skills but also on his batting. It would be interesting to see whether the responsibilities of being captain give him more motivation to do better or if it becomes a burden for the team as a whole. All the fans would hope that he relishes the added responsibility of being captain.

Jasprit Bumrah- The new vice captain of the Indian team and the best bowler of the attack will look forward to making a statement of intent as one of the leaders of the team and the spearhead of the bowling attack. He would want to pick up many wickets and win the series for his nation and stamp his authority.

South Africa:

Quinton de Kock- He will be the most watched player in the South Africa team this series as he announced his retirement from test cricket not too long back and the issues going on between him and Cricket South Africa will motivate him to show that he is one of the best in the world at the top of the order. He would look to stamp his authority on the game and win the series for his nation.

Tempa Bavuma- The captain of South Africa will obviously have the eyes on him as he is over of the most technically correct batters in the team and is a very calm head but it’s his first series as captain of South Africa so he would be watched closely.

Kagiso Rabada- The leader of the South Africa bowling attack who has had a very good test series and he would look to build on the momentum and look to lick lots of wickets in the Three matches against India and make a statement of intent.
