Virat Kohli played a good knock in the first game and it seemed that he was set to end his century drought. However, he was dismissed for 51. Kohli has a staggering record in South Africa thus he is our pick for India top batter.
Temba Bavuma turned the first game in South Africa’s favour with a brilliant hundred. He came in at a tough situation and played a blinder. He was in good form in the test series as well. He can be backed as South Africa top batter.
Even when every other bowler was smashed by Dussen and Bavuma, Bumrah had very good figures. He took two wickets and leaked runs at less than 5:0 runs per over. Back him as India top bowler.

South Africa vs India 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
India have now lost three matches in a row in South Africa. Can they end their losing streak and stay alive in the series? Read our preview for the second ODI that gets underway Boland Park, Paarl at 2:00 PM IST.
After a drubbing in the first game, South Africa has bounced back strong and have won two Tests and the first ODI, leaving India shellshocked. Where is India going wrong? Throughout the tour, or let’s admit that it’s been a while since the batters have contributed to the team’s win. The bowling from India has been extraordinary which has helped them win matches but the batters have been a big letdown.
We saw the same in the Test series, and batters failed to make an impact in the first ODI as well. We are not going to scrutinise the bowling performance in the first ODIs as they were pretty good and credit must go to Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma for scoring hundreds and taking South Africa to a decent total.
However, questions will be raised on batting. In both games, KL Rahul has not been able to play freely as if he is under too much pressure which is not good at all. Dhawan and Kohli played well in the last game but both failed to play through the innings, which they will have to do given the inexperience in the middle order. For India to win, the top-order needs to take responsibility.
South Africa, on the other hand, should not get complacent. They have issues in batting and not always Bavuma or Dussen will score runs. Aiden Markram and Quinton de Kock need to contribute as well.

SA vs IND Match Toss Prediction
The wicket is slow and neither of the skippers will be interested in chasing. It should be a straightforward call to win the toss and bat first.
SA vs IND Pitch Report
The surface was on the slower side in the first game and is expected to get even slower in the second game. Starting the inning will be difficult for the batters and spinners will be key.
A hot and humid day awaits the teams in Paarl. The temperatures will hover around high 30s

South Africa Team News & Playing 11
SA Team News
Having won the first game, South Africa are not expected to change their winning combination. They already played their best players in the first game. If they need to test the bench strength, it will come in the final game. Kagiso Rabada has been rested from the series though and won’t take part in the series.
SA Key Players
Temba Bavuma - Bavuma stood up tall when the chips were down for South Africa. He played a magnificent inning of 110 and pushed South Africa to a position of strength. The skipper will once again hold the key.
Rassie van der Dussen - The right-hander once again showed why he is considered as one of the best ODI batters. Dussen averages 73 in his career and has already scored 2 hundreds and 9 fifties in 25 innings. He is a match-winner for South Africa.
Tabraiz Shamsi - The wicket will assist the spinners and Shamsi is a world class bowler. He will be key with the ball for South Africa in the middle overs.
SA Team Form
South Africa have now won three matches on the bounce in the bilateral series and are looking good.
South Africa Predicted Playing 11
Quinton de Kock (wk), Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Temba Bavuma (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi

IND Team News
India may like to strengthen their batting and bring in Suryakumar Yadav in place of Venkatesh Iyer. We do see a place for Ruturaj Gaikwad as well.
IND Key Players
Virat Kohli - The former Indian skipper looked good during his knock of 51 but unfortunately couldn’t carry on. Kohli is generally very good at converting 50s into 100 and a big one should not be far away.
Shikhar Dhawan - The Southpaw made a return to the team with a blazing 50. He got India off to a flier and set up the chase beautifully. However, he lost his wicket at a crucial time after which India slumped to defeat. Dhawan though will be keen to play a bigger inning in the next game.
Yuzvendra Chahal - Chahal didn’t have a great game in the first match but the wicket is getting slow and the conditions will suit him. He could be a trump card for India.
IND Team Form
Overall, the team form is good but the batting looks a bit concerning.
Rishabh Pant will be our keeper. Pant is a good choice and he can take a toll on the spinners in middle overs.
Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen will comprise our batting. The two Africans scored centuries in the last game, while their Indian counterparts scored two good half-centuries in the same match.
Marco Jansen and Andile Phehlukwayo will be our all-rounders. Jansen is one of the key South Africa pacers, while Phehlukwayo somehow manages to get wickets in every game.
Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shardul Thakur will be the three Indian bowlers. Chahal and Bumrah are two ace bowlers, while Thakur can bat as well which is why he is in the team. From South Africa, we have Tabraiz Shamsi who will enjoy the conditions.
Virat Kohli is a good choice for captain, while Shardul Thakur can be backed as vice-captain

South Africa shocked India in the first game but we still believe India is a far better side than what they looked in the first game. For South Africa, hundreds from Bavuma and Dussen took the game away from India. However, both players are not very consistent and thus South Africa's batting looks vulnerable to us. As of now, both teams are on par but since India is a better team on paper and have more match-winners, we are backing them to win.
India are favourites to beat South Africa at odds of 1.68
