After the disappointing performance of the Asia Cup 2022, Team India has made a comeback with a bang. India has registered impressive victories in two consecutive T20 series against Australia and South Africa. The bilateral series has always been the strength of Team India. But the upcoming ODI series vs South Africa promises to be a more competitive affair.

Type: ODI Series – 1st ODI

The competition is even more intense as the String B Indian team will play the South African team in full force. India’s B team may have won the last two ODI series against West Indies and Zimbabwe. But the South Africa series promises to be a tough competition as they will have some of the best bowlers and batsmen in the business.

The 3-match ODI series will begin from 6 October to 11 October with the final match being played on 11 October. Let’s take a look at the strongest predicted playing 11 for the 2022 India vs South Africa ODI series.

Team India’s selection to play 11 for the ODI series against South Africa will probably be inspired by the Zimbabwe ODI series. We should see that the same opening pair of Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill has performed tremendously as openers. We should also look at Ishaan Kishan and Sanju Samson in the middle order as seen in the last series.

The return of Shreyas Iyer to the team and the absence of KL Rahul should see him play at No. Barring these 5 batsmen, the big dilemma for India will be whether to play 6 batsmen and 5 bowlers or play 5 batsmen, 1 all-rounder, and 5 bowlers who can bat a bit.
Before we address this issue, let us discuss the bowlers of the first choice for the ODI series. India will probably play standby for the T20 World Cup 2022 as it will give them good match practice. So, Deepak Chahar, Avesh Khan, and Ravi Bishnoi are definitely shot starters. Mohammad Siraj is also the first-choice fast bowler. So he should play too.

Now, talking about the last 2 players, India can play Rajat Patidar or Rahul Tripathi on 6 and Shahbaz Ahmed on 7. Or they can play Shahbaz Ahmed at 6, Deepak Chahar at 7, and Shardul Thakur at 8. Very interesting selection dilemma for India.

Ideally, India would not risk playing a strong bowling line-up of only 5 batsmen vs South Africa. So, expect Rahul Tripathi to make his debut on 7 with Shahbaz Ahmed as the finisher. Unfortunately, Shardul will have to wait for his turn. Talking about seniority, apart from the above, India can also think of playing Kuldeep Yadav ahead of Ravi Bishnoi.
