Get the latest insights on the India vs South Africa 2nd ODI match, previews, pitch conditions, and a prediction for the upcoming clash.

India vs South Africa 2nd ODI Match Prediction: India gave a commanding performance in the first match against the host South Africa in the 1st ODI match of the series in which the Indian team won by 8 wickets. The next game will be played at St George’s Park, Gqeberha, starting at 4:30 PM IST.

India’s bowling unit was brilliant in the last match against the South African team, as they got the whole team out under 116 in just 27.3 overs, and then the Indian batter chased the total by 8 wickets. It was Sai Sudharsan’s debut match, who scored half a century in just 43 balls. However, it was all about Arshdeep Singh’s maiden five-wicket haul in the ODI.

South Africa once again was clueless about the pitch condition, and just like in the 3rd T20, the batters failed to improve their performance at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg. They got all out on 95 in the 3rd T20, and then in the first ODI, they got out on 116. Reeza Hendricks and Van der Dussen got out on a duck, and only Phehlukwayo scored 30-plus runs in an ODI match.

Both teams missed the opportunity to take the DRS at the correct time when Mukesh Kumar got Reeza Hendricks out. KL Rahul did not take the DRS, which did not cost India much, but for South Africa, Markram did not take the DRS when Sai Sudharsan was out, and they paid the price.

The Pitch Report of St George’s Park, Gqeberha, has been great for the pace bowlers, and it was used in the 2nd T20I. The spinners will also get some purchase from the pitch, and it is one of the slowest pitches in South Africa, where only the 250 mark has been crossed in the last 42 Matches.

Team Preview Of India

India gave Sai Sudharsan a chance in the opening slot, and he delivered well, but it was not a challenging match because the South African batters failed to put up a big total. However, India can make a few changes on the side because there is news that Shreyas Iyer will take a break for the test match preparation, and Rinku Singh will replace him.

Important players for the India Team in the match against South Africa

1- Kuldeep Yadav took five wickets in the last T20 match, and South Africa does have a weakness against wrist spinners. He took 27 wickets against South Africa in just 12 matches. In the last match, he took only one wicket, but at St. George Park, he had the best bowling figure in the ODI.

2- Rinku Singh will join the ODI team in the 2nd ODI match against South Africa as a middle-order batter. He did quite well in the T20 series and his last few matches, which might give him an edge to get another chance in the ODI against South Africa.

3- Arshdeep Singh was amazing in the last match, taking five wickets and also with his amazing swing bowling. It was an important match for him because he has been finding his form since returning from the injury.

Team Preview Of South Africa

South Africa needs to back themselves, and in both last matches, they got out with a low score, which is a big thing because of the defeat against Australia in the semi-final of the World Cup.

Important players for the South Africa Team in the match against India

1- Aiden Markram needs to step up and give one of his best performances in the next match as he had a great 2023 year in ODI, averaging 52.36 in 22 matches consisting of three centuries and five half-centuries.

2- Heinrich Klaasen has been amazing for South Africa for the last two years, averaging around 48+, but he needs to keep his performance consistent. In the last match, he failed to live up to his name, but he is one of the most improved batters.

3- Nandre Burger looked lethal in the last match but was not able to take a wicket, but he will be crucial as it was his debut ODI match, and he can do way better for the South African side.
