India tour of South Africa

SA vs. IND, 2nd ODI

 

Preview

The Men in Blue would look out to seal the ODI series when they meet the hosts South Africa in the 2nd ODI encounter of the three-match series. The game will be played at St George’s Park in Gquberha on Tuesday, December 19. 

The KL Rahul-led Indian Cricket Team drafted a comprehensive 8-wicket win over Markram’s South Africa at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg to get a 1-0 lead on Sunday, December 17. 

The young pace bowling duo of Arshdeep Singh (5 for 37) and Avesh Khan (4 for 27) ran over South Africa’s batting order, resulting in a humiliating collapse for just 116 runs. Later on, Sai Sudarshan (55 Not out) and Shreyas Iyer (52) took India to the winning stance with 33.2 in hand. 

The two ODI greats will clash at St George’s Park for the sixth time with four games in favour of the hosts and only one in India’s favour. In total India have played six One-day matches in Gqeberha, winning 1 and losing 5 of the games, while the Proteas have a record of 21 wins and 13 losses at the venue.

Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at St George’s Park usually favours the batters but assists the spinners as the game advances. The team choosing to bat first will have an edge over those who bat in the second place, so the skipper winning the toss might choose to bat first.

The weather forecast for Gqeberha signifies cloudy weather with a high chance of downpours, around 25% precipitation. The temperature at the location is projected to be around 22 degrees Celsius, with humidity levels at approximately 5%, and a wind speed of around 24 kmph.

Team India is laced with a pretty strong pace and spin attack and it will be a tough task for the South African batters to put up a good fight in the conditions where the pitch assists swing and spin bowling. We fancy the Men in Blue to outscore South Africa in this match.
