South Africa Tour Of India Ranchi ODI: Virat Kohli the most successful batsman Here In Ranchi
The second match of the ODI series between India and South Africa is being played in Ranchi. South Africa captain Keshav Maharaj won the toss and decided to bat first. 2-2 changes have been made in the playing XI of both teams.
Temba Bavuma and Tabrez Shamsi are not playing today’s match for South Africa. At the same time, Washington Sundar and Shahbaz Ahmed have been given a chance in place of Rituraj Gaikwad and Ravi Bishnoi in Team India.
No team in any sport in the world wants to lose. No one wants to make or equal the world record of defeat. But, the match against South Africa at Ranchi’s JSCA Stadium on Sunday has come with a similar threat to India. Apart from this, there is also the fear of losing the series.
Virat Kohli is the most successful batsman here In Ranchi
Former India captain Virat Kohli has played five ODIs at the JSCA Stadium. In this, he has scored 384 runs at an average of 192. These include two centuries and one half-century. Shikhar Dhawan, who is captaining Team India in this series, has been able to score only 15 runs in 2 matches here.
Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, a member of the current team, has taken 3 wickets in 1 match at this ground. He is combined with Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, and Dhawan Kulkarni at No. 1 in the list of highest wicket-takers here.
The Opportunity ahead of the Indian Team
The Indian team could not win an ODI series against South Africa in India since 2012. A win in this match will keep India’s hopes of ending the wait alive. Also, with the victory in this match, Team India will also break the series of four consecutive defeats in ODI cricket against South Africa. India has not been able to beat South Africa anywhere at home or away in this format since 2020.
