South Africa vs India 2nd ODI Match Prediction. South Africa maintained their Test series momentum with a fantastic performance in the first One Day International. To win the series, they will need to play with the same confidence in the second ODI. The second ODI of the three-match series will be contested at Boland Park in Paarl on Friday, January 21. In the first ODI, the Proteas were outstanding.

They scored 296 runs in their first innings, with Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen both scoring a century. Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, and Shardul Thakur looked in terrific form after the total. Despite the fact that all three hitters scored 50 or more runs, the team fell short of the team’s goal of 31 runs. To make a comeback in the series, the Men in Blue must play with more conviction both with the bat and with the ball. On Friday, the visitors will play a game that will decide the series, and they will need to win to keep the series alive.

Pitch Report

The first game was also held here, and the hitters had a great time. While India’s middle-order crumbled, the bowlers didn’t appear to be getting any support from the pitch. Because there is no dew factor, the captain who wins the toss must choose to bat and put runs on the board.

Key Player

Jasprit Bumrah                                                 

As previously said, bowlers had little purchase in the first game. However, Indian paceman Jasprit Bumrah pitched a fantastic inning, preventing the Proteas hitters from dominating. In his quota of 10 overs, he only gave up 48 runs while also capturing two wickets.

Rassie van der Dussen

Rassie van der Dussen, fresh off a quick-fire century, will be eager to repeat his exploits in the second ODI. The dasher’s career has been marked by consistency, as he has averaged 73.62 in ODIs after 30 games. He’ll back himself to a match-winning knock after tormenting Indian bowlers in the last game.

Team News

  • Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen, both captains of the Proteas, smashed hundreds in the previous match and will aim to repeat their feats.
  • India’s first game against South Africa ended in a dismal loss, and the pressure is rising on them following a string of lacklustre performances across all formats of the game.

South Africa vs India Match Tips

When India takes on South Africa in the second ODI of the three-match series, the stakes will be enormous. It’s worth noting that India lost the previous Test series and is hoping for a different outcome in the ODI leg. To tie the series at 1-1, they must overcome their middle-order difficulties. South Africa shocked the world by winning the first ODI of the series, and they can do it again by defeating India.

The visitors were competitive but eventually fell short in a high-quality first game that well set up the series. The Indians can reply, but with the bit between their teeth, the hosts can make it two wins in a row and win the series with one game to spare.
