IND vs SA 1st ODI Match Preview: The one-day matches between India and South Africa (IND vs SA) are starting from today. Both the teams will face off at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. Team India will play an ODI match for the first time at this stadium. The command of Team India for this ODI series is in the hands of Shikhar Dhawan. The entire squad of India will be seen changed here. Only 2-3 players of the recently concluded T20 series are part of this squad. On the other hand, South Africa will enter the ODI series with the same team with which it has played the T20 series.
In the absence of the senior players of Team India, there will be a good chance for the young players in this series. Rahul Tripathi, who has been performing well in IPL for a long time, can get a chance for his international debut this time. This will also be an important series for Mohammad Siraj and Deepak Chahar. By performing well in this series, both these players can claim to replace Bumrah in Team India’s T20 World Cup squad.
How is the mood of the pitch?
So far three ODIs have been played at the Ekana Stadium, which have been played between Afghanistan and West Indies. Runs could not be scored in these three matches. However, there has been a good rain of runs in the recent T20 matches here. In such a situation, it is possible that good runs can be rained in today’s ODI.
How will the weather be?
At present, it is raining in Lucknow. Today there is a full chance of rain during the match as well. In such a situation, it is possible that the audience may have to return here disappointed.
