He said that he want to see the performance of Prasidh and Mohammed Siraj in these matches, and he is expecting that they could make a difference, specifically in the middle of the innings, where they don’t seem to find wickets.
During critical stages of the 1st ODI, Team India leaked runs and handed over the momentum to South Africa, as they ended up losing by 31 runs. With the series on the line, KL Rahul’s captaincy will look to put on a better show in all departments of the game. The Indian bowlers let go of the upper hand, as Temba Bavuma and Rassie Van Der Dussen scored their side out of trouble and put them in a commanding position.
However, the 3rd as well as the final ODI will be held on 23rd of this month, at Newlands in Cape Town.
