KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer

India vs South Africa 1st ODI : Team India has leveled the T20 series with South Africa, but the ODI series is still pending. Now not Suryakumar Yadav, but KL Rahul will take the responsibility of captaincy. Suryakumar Yadav has not been given a place in the ODI team this time. Meanwhile, the biggest question for the new captain will be which playing eleven he should enter the field with. Anyway, there is a Test series after this, so big players have been given rest from ODIs, while young and new players have been given a chance in ODIs. In such a situation, it will not be easy for Rahul to decide what his playing eleven should be.

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sai Sudarshan can open

In the team selected by BCCI for the ODI series, it is believed that Ruturaj Gaikwad and Sai Sudarshan will be seen opening. Neither Yashasvi Jaiswal nor Shubman Gill is in ODI. Both these players played both the matches of the T20 series, while Ruturaj Gaikwad had to wait. Now it is Ruturaj’s turn. After this, Tilak Verma, Rajat Patidar and Shreyas Iyer are also in the team. Now there is also a question as to who will play at number three in the absence of Virat Kohli. It is believed that Shreyas Iyer may be given a chance here. He has also not played any match of the T20 series. If there is a question of choosing between Rajat Patidar and Tilak Verma, then Rajat Patidar can win.

KL Rahul will keep, suspense regarding Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson is also there for the keeper option along with KL Rahul. It is almost certain that KL Rahul will take over the responsibility of keeping. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see how Sanju will be set in the playing eleven. After the way Rinku Singh has performed in the recent times, the decision of not including him in the playing eleven may be difficult, but Rinku has played all the matches of the T20 series, so it is possible that he may not be included in the playing eleven. St should be given. The team has two options as an all-rounder. Akshar Patel and Washington Sundar. Both the players have not played T20, so the claim is strong, but it will be interesting to see what decision captain KL Rahul takes at the last moment. Ravindra Jadeja has not got a place in the ODI team.

Team India can field with three pacers and two spinners

Now if we talk about bowling, it is almost certain that Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar and Avesh Khan will play, because there are only three pacers in the team. Although Deepak Chahar was also kept in the team, but he has not been able to reach South Africa yet due to his father’s illness. In such a situation, they should be considered outsiders. But both Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are in the team. It is very difficult for both of them to play together, but it remains to be seen who will play together.
