Dec 5, 2013

 

India have won the toss and elected to bowl in the first One-Day International (ODI) against South Africa at the Wanderers, Johannesburg. This is the ultimate test for the Indian players they say, but this is a very confident side and may have the goods to challenge the Proteas on their own turf.

 

India have a settled unit and may not make any change to their line-up. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have firmly established themselves at the top. Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina form the middle-order with skipper Dhoni to follow. Yuvraj batted at No 4 during the last game against the West Indies and got a much-needed fifty. In all likelihood, they would persist with him at that spot.

 

South Africa, on the other hand, will aim to bounce back after a disappointing series against Pakistan. The news is that Jacques Kallis and Dale Steyn are fit raring to go for this encounter, which is a huge boost for them as Steyn is the key to their fortunes and can turn the game anytime. As far as Kallis is concerned, there is a lot of talk about his future whether or not he would play the 2015 World Cup. The home side would be bolstered by his presence as he would also bowl.

 

Teams:

 

South Africa (probable): Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla,  Quinton de Kock (wk), Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers (c), JP Duminy, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Dale Steyn, Imran Tahir, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

 

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav.
