The Proteas are expecting to overcome the critical situation by winning the pink ODI in the wanderers to be held on 10th February. Ab De Villiers is expected to play the rest of the games.
The South Africans are sweating on the nets to answer the Indian spin-attack in the 4th ODI at Johannesburg.
They are lagging back with consequent defeats in the ODI series against India with 3-0.
The South Africans did a better performance in the third one-dayer and lost the match with a difference of 124 runs failing to restrict the master Innings played by Kohli, the unbeaten 160. Kohli made his 34th ODI century in this match.
In the previous matches, the Safaris failed to encounter the Indian Spin attack. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav took 21 and 28 wickets respectively in the three one day international matches against South Africa. On the other hand, the men in blue strongly opposed the bowlers of South Africa by just losing 11 wickets in total in the three previous matches.
South African team:
The return of Devilliers seems to be a good sign for the host’s team and Klaassen is going to replace Quinton De Kock as the wicket-keeper.
The inexperienced captain is the biggest drawback of South Africans. Aiden Markram, who took charge as the captain due to the injury of former captain Du Plessis could not lead the team with consistency in the previous matches.
Fahrein Behredien is expected to show his consistent performance as he was not given a chance in the previous matches.
Team India is in a very good form since the third test match in Johannesburg. There are no injuries for team members till date. So the captain is expected to continue with the same final eleven as the previous matches.
