Since the India squad for ICC T20I World Cup 2022 will travel to Australia ahead of the IND vs SA ODI series, they will not be available for the ODI series against South Africa. Hence, other players will get opportunities to play against South Africa.

For batsmen, the India squad might have players like Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Rahul Tripathi. Shikhar Dhawan is also expected to lead the team in the absence of Rohit Sharma. While Dhawan and Shubman Gill will be the openers for India, Ruturaj Gaikwad might be an extra opener in the squad.
