South Africa will take on India in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the ongoing three-match ODI series at Boland Park in Paarl on Friday (January 21).
Notably, the Proreas are leading the series 1-0 after defeating India in the first ODI by 31 runs. The home team would be looking to excel in the second game as well to seal the series. On the other hand, India would be focusing to bouncing back in order to keep the series alive.
Head-to-Head record (in South Africa):
Played: 35 | SA won: 23 | IND won: 10 | No result: 2
Much like in the first game, the track at Boland Park is expected to be slow and offer turn. Teams winning the toss would aim to bat first to maximise the conditions as the pitch will deteriorate further, and batting will become more challenging.
South Africa: Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Janneman Malan, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj, Sisanda Magala, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi
India: KL Rahul (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
