South Africa tour of India 2022, IND vs SA- South Africa Playing 11 vs India (Predicted), 2nd ODI Indian Team will play their 2nd one-day match against South Africa on 09th October 2022, Sunday at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi. The team India will lead by Shikhar Dhawan and South Africa team will be led by Temba Bavuma. The match will get started at 01:30 PM IST and the toss of the 2nd One Day match will be done at 01:00 PM IST.

India suffered a nine-run loss to South Africa in the rain-curtailed first ODI. Invited to bat, South Africa posted 249 for 4, riding on the fifties from David Miller (75 not out) and Heinrich Klaasen (74 not out) and Quinton de Kock’s 48 after the match was reduced to a 40-over-a-side affair due to wet outfield.

India slipped to 51 for 4 in 17.4 overs but Sanju Samson took the chase deep with a 63-ball 86 not out but it was not enough as they ended at 240 for 8. While Sanju Samson was the top-scorer for the hosts, Shreyas Iyer hit 50 off 37 balls. Shardul Thakur (33 off 31 balls) also played some lusty blows but Lungi Ngidi (3/52) took two wickets in the 38th over to stop India in their tracks. Kagiso Rabada (2/36) also took two wickets.

Among the Indian bowlers, pacer Shardul Thakur took two South African wickets, while debutant spinner Ravi Bishnoi and spinner Kuldeep Yadav got one each. Sanju Samson smashed 86 not out off 63 balls but India fell just short of what seemed an improbable chase at one stage against a South African side desperate for wins in the World Cup Super League.

Sanju Samson and Shardul Thakur added 93 in 66 balls for the sixth wicket and were particularly severe on South Africa’s second spinner, Tabraiz Shamsi. Tabraiz Shamsi conceded 89 runs in eight overs, including 20 in the final over when India needed 30.

South Africa 249 for 4 (Miller 75*, Klaasen 74*, Thakur 2-35) beat India 240 for 8 (Samson 86*, Iyer 50, Ngidi 3-52, Rabada 2-36) by nine runs

South Africa really needed to win this ODI series as they are in a critical situation with respect to ODI super league. Their series against Australia has already been cancelled which was set to happen early next year. The Proteas have committed themselves to CSA20 which meant that they had to withdraw from that series which has robbed the points for them. That meant they need to win almost all their remaining games to directly qualify for the 2023 ODI World Cup without having to play the qualifiers.

South Africa allrounder Dwaine Pretorius has been ruled out of the ongoing ODI series in India as well as the upcoming men’s 2022 T20I World Cup – that begins later this month in Australia – after fracturing his left thumb. He picked up the injury during the third T20I against India on Tuesday in Indore, the only game South Africa won in the three-match contest. Marco Jansen has been added to South Africa’s ODI squad.

The Proteas have managed to come up after the voids left by Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers. Their middle order is definitely one of the best going around and if Aiden Markram cracks the ODI format, they will be unstoppable to say the least. South Africa would probably play the same XI in the 2nd ODI unless they decide to play benched Reeza Hendricks in place of Aiden Markram, who scored a duck in the 1st ODI.

SA Probable XI: Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi

Janneman Malan debuted for the Proteas back in 2019 but he rose to prominence in 2021, where he scored 715 runs in 17 international matches (8 ODIs and 9 T20Is) at an average of 47.66 and a strike rate of 101.85.

He won the ICC Men’s Emerging Cricketer of the Year award for his excellent run in the white ball –, particularly in the 50-over format. He replaced the last T20I match centurion Rilee Rossouw in the ODI squad. Tristan Stubbs is also absent from the ODI squad. He may open again in the 2nd ODI after scoring 22 off 42 balls including 3 fours in the 1st ODI against India.

Quinton de Kock was dismissed after scoring only 1 in the 1st T20I against India. He was clean-bowled by Arshdeep Singh. He scored 69* in the 2nd T20I against India and 68 in the 3rd T20I against India before being run out.

He was the highest run-getter in the India T20I series with 138 runs averaging 69 in 3 T20Is. He will look to be among the runs in the ODIs against India. In ODIs against India, he has the most tons (6). He scored 48 off 54 balls before being trapped lbw off debutant spinner Ravi Bishnoi.

Skipper Temba Bavuma will have the responsibility of occupying the crease from one end and keeping the scoreboard ticking in the upcoming India vs South Africa ODIs. Temba Bavuma is a very compact player and has all the shots in his arsenal.

South African captain Temba Bavuma may bat at No. 3 in the upcoming ODIs. He got injured during the Proteas’ last India tour in June 2022 managing just 61 runs in 4 T20Is averaging 20.33. He retired hurt after scoring 8* in the 4th T20I and didn’t play subsequent England and Ireland T20Is.

In the ongoing tour, he managed only 3 runs in as many T20Is after being dismissed without scoring in the first two matches. His pathetic form in the ongoing tour continued as he was dismissed after hitting two boundaries. He scored 8 off 12 balls before being clean-bowled by Shardul Thakur.

Aiden Markram

Aiden Markram is a right-handed batsman and right-arm off-break bowler from South Africa. Aiden Markram scored 25 in the 1st T20I and helped his team recover from 9/5. He didn’t bat in the 3rd while scoring 33 in the 2nd T20I. He was dismissed without scoring as Kuldeep Yadav uprooted his stumps by bowling an excellent delivery. He played 5 balls, didn’t trouble the scorers and also didn’t bowl.

He has the potential to make an impact with both the bat as well as the ball. His last 3 T20I scores against England and Ireland were 51*, 56 and 27. He didn’t feature in the previous T20I series against and in India in June 2022.

Another option is Reeza Hendricks who warmed the bench in all 3 T20Is in the ongoing tour. Reeza Hendricks scored 57, 53, 70 (against England) before his 74 and 42 (against Ireland). He was the leading run-getter against England, amassing 180 runs in 3 T20Is averaging 60. In 48 T20Is, he has amassed 1372 runs averaging 29.82 with 11 fifties. Reeza Hendricks averages 25.68 in 24 ODIs amassing 565 runs.

The left-handed batter David Miller was at his prime best during IPL 2022 as he played several match-winning knocks for the champions Gujarat Titans. David Miller is expected to give similar performances for his national team as well in the India vs South Africa series.

There will be high hopes from David Miller following his exploits for the Gujarat Titans (GT) in IPL 2022. The attacking left-hander displayed a different kind of maturity, smashing 481 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of 142.73. He managed 96 runs averaging 48 in 5 T20Is in June 2022 against India.

David Miller scored an unbeaten 106 in the 2nd T20I which went in vain after being dismissed without scoring in the opening T20I. He scored an unbeaten 19 off 5 balls including 3 sixes in the 3rd T20I, at a strike rate of 380. He was the 2nd highest scorer in the preceding T20I series, amassing 125 runs. He scored an unbeaten 75 off 63 balls and was involved in an unbroken 139-run stand with MOM Heinrich Klaasen (74*) in the 1st ODI, which was won by Proteas by 9 runs.

Heinrich Klaasen scored a 65 ball 74* studded with 6 fours and 2 sixes and was involved in an unbroken 139 runs partnership with David Miller (75*) in the 1st ODI against India. He was awarded the Man of the Match for his stellar show with the bat.

After Quinton de Kock (48) gave a flying start to South Africa, Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller (75*) took charge of the side and went on to put on an unbeaten 139-run stand for the fifth wicket to help the tourists post 249/4 in 40 overs in the rain-hit first ODI match in Lucknow.

Keshav Maharaj bowled excellently in the 1st ODI as he was economical (1/23 in 8 overs at an economy of 2.9). He may be the sole spinner in the 2nd ODI if Proteas drop too expensive Tabraiz Shamsi. In the spin department, the bowling duo of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi will want to choke the flow of runs during the middle overs.

Keshav Maharaj scored 41 in the first T20I in the preceding T20I series against India and picked 2/23 and 2/34 in the next two T20Is after getting hammered in the 1st T20I (0/21 in 3 overs).

Lungi Ngidi

Lungi Ngidi took 3/52 in the first ODI including wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Shardul Thakur at crucial junctures as his team South Africa won the 1st ODI by 9 runs. Lungi Ngidi made his debut in 2017-2018 and has played sporadically.

Another option is seam-bowling allrounder Andile Phehlukwayo who made himself a part of South Africa’s white-ball sides with his skill at the death, the ability to disguise his slower ball, and the ability to contribute with the bat as a finisher. He has picked 87 scalps in 73 ODIs averaging 31.54 with 3 four-wicket hauls and also scored 737 runs averaging 24.56. He has also hit 2 fifties.

Kagiso Rabada

Kagiso Rabada will be South Africa’s pace spearhead in the upcoming series against India. He had a memorable IPL 2022 campaign for the Punjab Kings (PBKS). He was the third-leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 23 wickets in 13 games at a strike rate of 12.52.

He was predicted to be key to the Proteas’ fortunes in the T20I series but picked only 2 scalps and went for plenty (0/57) in the 2nd T20I but was economical in the other two matches (1/16 in 1st T20I and 1/24 in 3rd T20I). In the 1st ODI, he returned with figures of 2/36 in 8 overs in a rain-truncated game.

Tabraiz Shamsi

Tabraiz Shamsi is a genuine wicket-taker, as his record proves. The pitch at Ranchi is expected to provide some assistance for the spinners, and the spin duo of Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi will want to take full advantage of those conditions in the India vs South Africa 2nd ODI.

Tabraiz Shamsi played the 1st T20I but was expensive as he conceded 27 runs in 2.4 overs and was wicketless. He warmed the bench in the next two T20Is. He was too expensive as Indian batters took him to the cleaners in the 1st ODI, where he conceded 89 runs in only 8 overs besides picking a scalp. The likes of Anrich Nortje and Andile Phehlukwayo and Marco Jansen (in place of Dwaine Pretorius) are also present and may replace him.
