India outplayed South Africa in the opening game by 8 wickets and has a 1-0 lead. Since the India vs South Africa ODI series comprises three games, India can win the series if they win the 2nd ODI. KL Rahul leads India in the absence of skipper Rohit Sharma and vice-captain Hardik Pandya.

Regarding the previous encounter, South Africa won the toss and opted to bat. However, the home team failed to execute their plans with a dangerous pace attack by Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan. While left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh clinched 5 wickets, right-arm pacer Avesh Khan hunted 4 wickets to demolish the opposition at a mere 116.

South Africa’s batting fell like a house of cards. Key top-order batters Reeza Hendricks (0) and Rassie van der Dussen (0) got out for ducks. Aiden Markram (12), Heinrich Klaasen (6), and David Miller (2) too got out cheaply. Later, during the chase, Sai Sudharsan (55*) and Shreyas Iyer (52) scored magnificent knocks to propel India to an 8-wicket victory.
