India vs South Africa

IND vs SA 1st ODI Match: India and South Africa will face each other in a three-match ODI starting from today i.e. December 17 in Johannesburg. This will be Team India’s first ODI series after the defeat of ODI World Cup 2023. This will be the 7th ODI series between the two teams in South Africa. Earlier, out of the 6 ODI series played in South Africa, Team India could win only 1.

Team India’s poor record in South Africa

Team India played its first ODI series in South Africa in the year 1992/93. Since then, Team India has managed to defeat South Africa at home only once. At the same time, South Africa has defeated Team India at home 5 times. Team India last played the ODI series in South Africa during 2021/22. Then under the captaincy of KL Rahul, Team India had to face 3-0 defeat.

Historic series victory under Virat’s captaincy

India had won the 6-match ODI series played in the year 2017-18 by 5-1. In this series, the responsibility of captaincy for Team India was being handled by Virat Kohli, who had performed brilliantly with the bat. Apart from Virat Kohli, no Indian captain has been able to win the ODI series in South Africa. In such a situation, this time KL Rahul will have a chance to create history by winning this series.

Head to head records of both teams in ODI

A total of 91 ODI matches have been played between the two teams, in which the Indian team won only 38 while South Africa won 50 matches. Apart from this, no result could be found in three matches. Whereas in Africa, India has won 10 out of 37 matches played so far, while they have faced defeat in 25.
