India vs South Africa ODI Series: India will take on South Africa in the 2nd ODI to keep the 3-match series alive after losing the first ODI. The second match will be played on 09th October 2022 at JSCA International Stadium.
Match: India vs South Africa, ODI 2 of 3
Date: 09th October 2022
Time: 01:30 PM IST
Venue: JSCA International Stadium Complex
Pitch Condition: The surface will be good for batting and plenty of runs are expected to be scored. This has been a high-scoring limited-overs series and the second ODI should not be too different. The average first innings score throughout the four ODIs played at this location was 253.5 runs, indicating that the Ranchi pitch has been more favorable for batsmen over time. As for the bowlers, the spinners will probably start the game right away with the semi-new ball because the pitch will grip and turn for them, similar to the first ODI pitch at Lucknow. On the other side, seafarers are less likely to obtain a substantial purchase off the deck because there is likely to be little to no movement. Overall, expecting both teams’ batters to have a rough day on Sunday as a 300+ run chase is definitely in the cards.

India vs South Africa – Team Performance in the Past Matches
Thursday’s game at the Ekana Cricket Stadium turned out to be interesting, and South Africa won by nine runs to lead India in the three-match ODI series, 1-0. The game was limited to 40 overs per side after being delayed for more than two hours. India chose to bowl first, and their new ball bowlers silenced South Africa’s starting lineup. They got off to a slow start before David Miller and Henrich Klaasen put together an uninterrupted century stand for the fifth wicket with fast half-centuries by themselves. They made a difficult score of 249/4.
India’s reply was a disaster as they lost both of their openers in the first six overs of their chase. Runs were few, and Ishan Kishan and Ruturaj Gaikwad, who were playing together, both departed quickly as a result of the pressure. After that, Shreyas Iyer launched a counterattack, hitting 50 out of 37. Sanju Samson started out cautiously before going all out toward the end of the chase. He was well supported by Shardul Thakur who perished on 33 followings which India fell behind as a flurry of wickets put South Africa back on top. India required 30 runs from the last over, and Samson gave them hope by hitting the first delivery for a six, but they only made 20 runs overall. He still had not beaten after 86 off of 63.
South Africa received 10 points after winning the opening ODI. A victory in the second ODI will give South Africa an additional 10 points and a series victory. According to the ICC Super League Points Table, they are presently ranked 11. The visitors will move up the points chart much-needed with two more victories.
However, after losing the first game, India will be looking to make a comeback. The opening game was disappointing for the top-order batsmen. If India wants to tie the series, Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Ishan Kishan must do better.
