Fans expect the India vs South Africa ODI series to be a cracker of a contest. KL Rahul will make his ODI captaincy debut and the following three names can start their ODI careers in the series.
In-form opener Ruturaj Gaikwad and all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer, who had fantastic IPL 2021 and Vijay Hazare Trophy campaigns, both found a place in the 18-member Indian squad. Mohammed Shami Credits Lage Father Tousif Ali After Completing 200 Test Wickets
While Gaikwad was the leading run-getter in the Vijay Hazare Trophy with 603 runs from five games, Iyer scored 379 runs in six games. The latter also chipped in with nine scalps with his medium pace.
Ruturaj Gaikwad is another Indian player who has already made his T20I debut but is yet to play an ODI match for the country. The right-handed batter, though, has been selected in the Indian ODI squad for the upcoming series against the Proteas.
Gaikwad is in the form of his life right now, having scored heaps of runs in IPL 2021 and the 2021/22 domestic season. The Chennai Super Kings have also retained him ahead of the 2022 IPL 2022 mega auction. Here’s how To Get Ironthrasher Backpack, Ice Blossoms Motorbike, Shattered Reality Emote
The selectors see Venkatesh Iyer as a replacement for Hardik Pandya, who has taken a break from the sport to work on his fitness. Iyer has a good record in List-A cricket, with 1,228 runs and 19 wickets to his name in 30 appearances.
Iyer’s batting strike rate in List-A cricket is 107.43 while his highest score is 198. It should not be a surprise if KL Rahul picks him in the playing XI for the ODI series opener in Paarl on January 19.
