India (Match Odds – 1.95):


Shikhar Dhawan would be disappointed with his top order’s lack of contribution in the previous game. A few more runs from them could have swung the game his way. The team would be under pressure in this game as they attempted to level the series. In this game, Dhawan must lead from the front and get the best out of his young players.

Dhawan and Shubman Gill were dismissed cheaply in the previous game, and they must perform well at the top. The team would like to see Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan form partnerships after they failed to convert their starts in the previous game. Shreyas Iyer performed admirably, and the team would benefit from his quick runs alongside Shardul Thakur and Sanju Sampson, who nearly led the team to victory in the previous game.

Avesh Khan and Mohammad Siraj must strike early in the next game against a strong top order. Shardul Thakur bowled good lines in the previous game, and the same is expected of him this time. Ravi Bishnoi and Kuldeep Yadav must take advantage of the conditions, as the visitors have a history of failing to cope with spin bowling.

Full Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan(c), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Rajat Patidar, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson(w), Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav, Avesh Khan, Mohammed Siraj, Rahul Tripathi, Mukesh Kumar, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Ravi Bishnoi

Players to watch out for:

Shikhar Dhawan

The skipper has a Test average of 40.61 and an ODI average of 45.55. Since making his international debut in 2010, he has hit 24 centuries.

Shreyas Iyer

The middle order batter scored 50 runs off 37 balls on Thursday and shared a 67-run fifth-wicket stand with Sanju Samson.

Shardul Thakur

The bowling all-rounder took the wickets of Janneman Malan and Temba Bavuma, both of South Africa’s top three batsmen, in the series opener.

Possible Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson (wk), Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Siraj, Avesh Khan

South Africa (Match Odds – 1.85):


Temba Bavuma would be upbeat about this game. His team played well in the first ODI, putting the Indians under pressure throughout. In the previous game, the bat and the ball from the side put on a good show. South Africa’s captain wants to go for the kill in this game and win the series.

Janneman Malan and Quinton de Kock, the side’s openers, played well in the previous game, and a consistent start from them would put the side in a commanding position. Aiden Markram and Bavuma were left out of the middle order, and they need to make runs. Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller delivered powerful knocks, and the team expects more of the same in this game.

Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell got under the Indians’ skin in the previous game, and they would look to keep up the pressure. Keshav Maharaj was brilliant with tight spells, and he and Lungi Ngidi would look to do the same in the middle overs. Tabraiz Shamsi, who went for runs, would benefit from better lines.

Full Squad:

Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock(w), Temba Bavuma(c), Aiden Markram, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje, Heinrich Klaasen, Lungi Ngidi, Reeza Hendricks

We anticipate inclement weather during the game, and the coin toss could be decisive. In a rain-shortened game, the team chasing the score always has the upper hand.

India vs South Africa Pitch Report

The JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi is known as a batsman’s paradise because the surface is flat and the outfield is lightning fast, allowing batsmen to score freely. When the conditions are favorable, fast bowlers excel. Spinners benefit from surface assistance and perform well here.

On October 9, we anticipate heavy cloud cover over Ranchi, with the possibility of rain. The wicket is expected to be flat, allowing batsmen to freely play their strokes. The cloudy skies would be beneficial to the fast bowler. To win here, the team that bats first would need to score around 300 runs.

India vs South Africa Prediction

The Indians face an uphill battle in this game. Their top-order players appeared rusty in the previous game, and the new ball pair also fell short. The young players on the team must step up and perform admirably. The South Africans would be upbeat, and the overcast conditions would benefit them. It will be a close race, but the South Africans will get the jump on the Indians. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

South Africa is the favourite to beat India at the odds of 1.95.
