India vs South Africa ODI Today Match Prediction Feb 13, 2018,Tuesday at Port Elizabeth,South Africa.
India: The visitors have Kohli (393 at 196.50) and Dhawan (271 at 90.33) in one of the deepest shades of a purple patch. However, Rohit Sharma, the other member of the batting triumvirate, is in the middle of another horror tour to South Africa. He has managed a top score of 47 and been dismissed by Kagiso Rabada six times from eight innings. While a contribution from the vice-captain and one of India’s serial big-hitter is due, India will also cast introspective glances at the middle-order, its composition and how best to get it to work in a way that can complement the heavy artillery at the top.
India were hamstrung by Kedar Jadhav’s absence in Johannesburg, leaving them with exactly five bowling options. Shreyas Iyer has bowled leg breaks in the nets and deserves more than one odd chance in the eleven. But if India believe the track will turn, they could throw in spinning all-rounder Axar Patel to the line-up at the cost of forcing the batters to take up additional responsibility. Meanwhile, the loss at the Wanderers will not allow India to rest Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah just yet, with the former appearing to operating on fumes at the fag end of a physically draining tour.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer/Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
South Africa: The hosts have identified the sweep – of all kinds – to be one way to tackle the wrist spinners and it’s a ploy Klaasen said “could” work. At the nets AB de Villiers indulged himself in a series of slog and reverse sweeps. It’ll be his role to put pressure on Kuldeep and Chahal early on. The hosts can afford to make one conditions-enforced change here and sacrifice either Lungi Ngidi or Andile Phehlukwayo for a spinner. Whether that spinner is Imran Tahir or the in-form Tabraiz Shamsi remains to be seen.
Probable XI: Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram (c), JP Duminy, AB de Villiers, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Morne Morkel, Lungi Ngidi/Imran Tahir
