Faf du Plessis, who scored a stunning hundred in the series opener, was ruled out of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/rahul-dravid-hope-prithvi-shaw-and-co-have-bigger-and-better-memories-going-ahead-683363" target="_blank">ODI as well as T20I series due to fractured finger</a>. However, captain for the T20I series is yet to be decided.</p> <p></p><p style="text-align: left;" align="center">"We're aware Markram is new to the setup but he's always been part of our plans since his U-19 (captaincy). We want to have a pool of leaders," Cricket South Africa announced.</p> <p></p><p style="text-align: left;" align="center">Markram, who has played a mere two ODIs for South Africa, said, "As a little boy you dream of captaining your country one day. (It's a) super humbling experience. What happened to Faf in Durban was a freak incident. I officially heard (about me becoming captain) first thing this morning. It's something you can't take for granted. I enjoy captaining and it's gonna be an additional pressure to deal with. Hopefully it's a good pressure. I'll keep sending messages to Faf on and off the field asking for advice. I'll definitely consult senior players for the best interest of the side."</p> <p></p>India lead the six-ODI series 1-0. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/india-in-south-africa-2018-200802/live-scores/india-vs-south-africa-2nd-odi-match-184803-summary.html" target="_blank">The second ODI will be played on Sunday at Centurion</a>.
