IND vs SA 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After an entertaining IT20 series concluded on Tuesday evening in Indore, India and South Africa begin a three-match ODI series in Lucknow on Thursday afternoon. This is the second time the sides have met in an ODI series this year after playing three games in South Africa in January. Read on as we preview this day-night fixture. This game gets underway at the Ekana Cricket Stadium at 13:30 local time.

Under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, India have continued to play good cricket and win ODIs over recent months. They will be very confident in home conditions.

South Africa put in an excellent display in the final IT20 on Tuesday and have some white ball batters in excellent form. They will play in an aggressive manner with the bat.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

The India side will be almost unrecognisable from the side who played in the IT20 series against South Africa with all the frontline players rested ahead of the T20 World Cup. Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Chahar and Shreyas Iyer are the only players who have combined both series.

IND Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan - The left-handed opener is a clean hitter of the ball and has hit 322 runs from his last six ODI innings.
  • Shubman Gill - The 23 year old right handed opener scored his first international century in August against Zimbabwe. He has since made scores of 92 and 119 for Glamorgan in the County Championship.
  • Kuldeep Yadav - The 27 year old left-arm spinner made his ODI debut in June 2017. His best figures in this format are 6-25 against England in 2018.

IND Team Form

India have won their last seven ODIs with wins against England, West Indies and Zimbabwe.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

We expect to see many of the same players who took part in the IT20 series involved in this game for the visitors. Although Janneman Malan and Heinrich Klaasen are likely to come into the team, we predict that South Africa will use this series as further white ball practice for their top T20 players.

SA Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock - The aggressive left-handed opener has a fantastic record in ODI cricket and comes into this game after successive scores of 68 and 69 not out in the IT20 series.
  • Janneman Malan - The 26 year old has made the step up to ODI cricket with ease. He made his debut in February 2020 and averages 52.70 from 19 innings.
  • Kagiso Rabada - The all format bowler is one of the strongest and most consistent bowlers on the international circuit. His best figures in this format are 6-16.

SA Team Form

South Africa lost their last ODI but have won two of their last four games with victories over England and Bangladesh.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock (wk), Temba Bavuma (c), Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi
