India’s challenge to level the series

  • Indians have lost the last three out of four games they have played at this venue, and this would be on their minds
  • South African new ball bowlers Rabada and Parnell are in excellent form, and this would make the side confident
  • Indian team lacks experience, and their bowling attack looks weak on the fast-bowling front

The Indians shall want to win the 2nd ODI and level the 3-match series. The hosts fell 9 runs short of what would have been a miraculous win. They would be under pressure as their recent form hasn’t been great. The South Africans would feel confident after the grand show the side put up in the last game.  

The Indian team would be under pressure as they don’t have an excellent record at this venue. Most of the senior players have been rested in the series, which has put an additional burden on the youngsters. The stakes would be high for the Indians in this game as the visitors showed good form in the last match. 

India Preview

Shikhar Dhawan would be upset with the lack of contribution from his top order in the last game. A few more runs from them could have turned the game in his side’s favor. The team would face the heat in this game as they look to level the series. Dhawan needs to lead from the front and get the best performance out of his young players in this game.  

Dhawan and Shubman Gill went out cheaply in the last game, and they must do well at the top. The side would like partnerships between Ruturaj Gaikwad and Ishan Kishan, who failed to convert their starts in the last game. Shreyas Iyer played well, and the side would need him to add quick runs with Shardul Thakur and Sanju Sampson, who nearly tool the side to a win in the last game.  

Avesh Khan and Mohammad Siraj need to strike early in the next game as their opponents have a strong top order. Shardul Thakur bowled good lines in the last game; the same would be expected from him. Ravi Bishnoi and Kuldeep Yadav must make good use of the conditions, as the visitors have a history of struggling against spin bowling. 

India Predicted Playing XI:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shubman Gill, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson (wk), Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Siraj, Avesh Khan

South Africa Preview

Temba Bavuma would feel confident going into this game. His side played well in the 1st ODI and kept the Indians under pressure right throughout the game. It was a good show with the bat and the ball from the side in the last game. The South African skipper would like to go for the kill in this game and win the series.  

Openers Janneman Malan and Quinton de Kock played well in the last game, and a steady start from them would put the side in a commanding position. In the middle order Aiden Markram and Bavuma missed out, and they need to make runs. Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller played powerful knocks, and the side would expect the same from them in this game.  

Kagiso Rabada and Wayne Parnell got under the skin of the Indians in the last game, and they would look to keep up with the pressure. Keshav Maharaj was brilliant with his tight spells, and he would look to do the same in the middle overs along with Lungi Ngidi. The side would like to see better lines from Tabraiz Shamsi, who went for runs.  

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Temba Bavuma (c), Janneman Malan, Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi

Weather Conditions

We expect to see heavy cloud cover over Ranchi on October 9, and there might be rain during the game. The wicket is expected to be flat where batsmen can play their strokes freely. There would be assistance for the fast bowler under the cloudy skies. The side that bats first would have to target a score around the 300-run mark to win here.

Venue Details

JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi, is known for being a batsman’s paradise as the surface here is flat and the outfield lightning fast, and this allows batsmen to score runs freely. Fast bowlers do well when the conditions are right for them. Spinners get assistance from the surface and do well here.

Toss: To Bowl

We expect adverse weather during the game, and the toss could be a deciding factor. In a rain-curtailed game, the side chasing the score always has an advantage. Teams have chased big scores at this venue in the past. Hence, we expect the side winning the toss to opt for bowling first.

Indians face an uphill challenge in this game. Their top-order players looked rusty in the last game, and the new ball pair also wasn’t up to the mark. The young players in the side must fill big shoes and do well. The South Africans would be confident, and the overcast conditions would help the side. It will be a close contest, but the South Africans shall start nose ahead of the Indians.
