Preview | Cricket News

India and South Africa have had contrasting fortunes in their most recent ODI series. While the Proteas swept Australia aside in the three-match ODI series at home, their first win in seven series across formats since the 2019 World Cup, India were beaten by the same margin by the Kane Williamson-led Kiwi side.

Key Players

KL Rahul (India): The 27-year-old remains Indian most important player in the shorter formats of the game, thanks to his versatility. With Rohit Sharma absent and also the skipper Virat Kohli going through a lean patch, Rahul's importance comes to the fore once again.

Quinton de Kock (South Africa): The skipper holds the key for the visitors. Despite having a poor series against Australia at home, where his team won 3-0, de Kock is expected to fire. And the simple reason - he just loves Indian bowling attack.
