Team India have arrived in the ‘Rainbow nation’ and all set to clash against the mighty Proteas in a 3-ODI series. MS Dhoni’s men take on AB de Villiers with the two teams occupying the top 2 spots in the ICC ODI rankings.
Currently world’s best bowler in all formats, Dale Steyn is a batsman’s worst nightmare. 117 wickets in 77 ODI’s, Steyn will be dreading to go at the Indian batsmen who are scoring runs for free. That will be a contest everybody is waiting for!
South African pitches will support bowlers that will offer them bounce and carry. In walks, Morne Morkel who will look to terrorize the likes of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan who have struggled with the shorter deliveries.
AB de Villiers
South African skipper in the ODI games, AB de Villiers will look destabilize the Indian bowlers who have struggled off late. Once he sets his feet in the crease, de Villiers is hard to skittle out.
One of South African team’s key men, Hashim Amla is a run-scoring machine. So far he has amassed 660 runs this in 20 ODI’s played so far, but would look to add on more and pile further misery on the struggling Indian bowling attack.
