India and South Africa are currently playing a T20I series against each other. The IND vs SA T20I series will be followed by the IND vs SA ODI series. During the ODI series, India and South Africa will play 3 matches. The 1st ODI will take place on October 6. The 2nd and 3rd ODI will take place on October 9 and 11 respectively.

Since the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team will fly to Australia for T20 World Cup 2022 ahead of the ODI series against South Africa, a second-string squad will face South Africa in ODIs. While many youngsters and debutants might get a chance in the IND vs SA ODI series, there are some players who might face the wrath of selectors over their selection in the India squad. Here we talk about 3 such players.

Prithvi Shaw is the first player on this list. Being part of the Indian team in 5 Tests, 6 ODIs, and 1 T20I so far, Shaw is an experienced player as compared to uncapped ones. However, the 22-year-old batter is an opening batsman and faces tough competition for the spot from players like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill.

Although Shaw executed a good performance in the recent ODI series against New Zealand A, selectors have opted to go with Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shubman Gill in the previous few series. Hence, Prithvi Shaw might again be overlooked by selectors as an opener for IND vs SA ODI series.
