After losing the T20I series 1-2 against India, South Africa will be desperate to do well in the ODI format as the 2023 World Cup qualification is directly a stake for the Temba Bavuma-led side. While South Africa have a full-strength squad at their disposal for the 50-over format, India will have w holesome changes as the T20I squad will depart for Australia ahead of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup.
The side is currently languishing at the 11th spot and in danger of not qualifying for the 50-over World Cup directly. South Africa needs to win as many ODI games from here and will heavily depend on the likes of Janneman Malan, David Miller, Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram.
Miller and De Kock looked good during the T20I series and the duo can be included in the fantasy squad. Janneman Malan too can be a good option. Wayne Parnell, Dwaine Pretorious, Kagiso Rabadda, and Keshav Maharaj will have a lot of responsibilities in the upcoming match.
Squad: Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje & Tabraiz Shamsi
Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill are the expected openers in the squad and both must be considered for a place in the fantasy team. Sanju Samson is a batter who should be included in the fantasy squad as he doubles up as the keeper and can fetch good points. Shreyas Iyer is another batter to look out for as he will bat at number 3 in the absence of KL Rahul. Deepak Chahar, Avesh Khan, and Ravi Bishnoi can also be considered while making the fantasy team.
Squad: Shikhar Dhawan (captain), Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson (wicketkeeper), Rahul Tripathi, Shahbaz Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Siraj
