IND vs SA 2nd ODI: India will be facing South Africa for the second time in the three-match ODI series on January 21.

India vs South Africa ODI Playing 11: India will be facing South Africa for the second time in the three-match ODI series on January 21 at the Boland Park, Paarl. South Africa came back from behind to thrash India by 31 runs in the first ODI. After batting first, South Africa scored 296 runs on the board. In light of that, the Indian team were restricted to just 265 runs. Shikhar Dhawan was the top scorer as he made 79 runs.

Since the Proteas won their first match, they are unlikely to tamper with their winning team. The combination of Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma looked lethal in the first ODI. South African bowlers also performed well.

In order to take the team to victory, India has to take better decisions and there is also a need for the individuals to rise to the occasion. The chances of a change in the playing XI are bleak even after the loss. The management will probably be looking forward to replacing Shreyas Iyer with Suryakumar Yadav for the fourth position. This change might be brought about by the management to provide more strength to the batting order.
