SA vs IND Dream11 Prediction: The second ODI between South Africa and India (SA vs IND) is expected to be a ripping contest. South Africa beat India in the first encounter to start the series on a high note. India would like to change their New Year fortunes and find their first win of this year. The contest was a close one despite the margin telling a different story. The visitors would like to get better in the crunch moments of the game to ensure they change the result in their favour.
The hosts almost had a perfect outing in the first game with match-winning performances from their middle order and bowlers. Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen scored brilliant hundreds in the first game and they would like to build on it. The only problem they would like to fix in their batting would be to ensure their top order stick around better. Lungi Ngidi’s form was a welcome sign for the hosts as well.
Probable playing XI: Temba Bavuma (captain), Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Keshav Maharaj, Marco Jansen, Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi, Rassie van der Dussen.
India has itself to blame for the loss in the first encounter. They dropped a few catches, gave 30 runs extra runs than the par score, had a few midfielders and their experienced batter didn’t till the end to finish the game. The visitors looked well in control during some parts of the game but miserable in others. India would like to win the crucial battles in the second outing as it is a do or die game for them now.
Probable Playing XI: KL Rahul (captain), Jasprit Bumrah, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shardul Thakur.

Going by the trend, it is expected to be a slow wicket. The dryness in the pitch will ensure grip for the spinners and the ball will not come to the bat easily. Batting first and putting runs on the board would be on the cards for both teams.
SA vs IND Injury Updates
No injury updates from any of the two sides.
SA vs IND Dream11 Key players
Quinton de Kock: After failing to score a big score in the first game, de Kock would like to stay at the crease for longer in the second game. He is known to be an outstanding limited-overs player with 5382 runs with an average of above 45 in the ODI format. Along with his batting, his wicketkeeping can also earn a few extra fantasy points.
Rassie van der Dussen: The hard-hitting batsman is having a dream season this time. After impressing everyone with his well-controlled aggression in the Test series, he earned the Player of the Match award in the 1st ODI as well. In his short ODI career so far, he has already scored 1178 at an average of 73.62.
Marco Jansen: The left-arm pacer turned out to be a headache for India in the Test series and is again haunting them in the ODIs. Left-arm pacers have always troubled India in past and Marco’s extra inches add misery to it. Though he has just made his debut in the last game, he is expected to earn the needed Fantasy points.
Virat Kohli: The former skipper of India is in tremendous form in the ODI format in the last 2 years. He has scored 9 scores of 50+ in the 14 games he has played in this period and his consistency is the key. Kohli would like to add to his 12,220 ODI runs and score his 71st century in this match.
Shreyas Iyer: Having failed to capitalize on his chance of finishing the game, Shreyas would be rather unhappy with the first game. However, he has been a reliable middle-order batter for India and he should find some form in the 2nd match. The Mumbai lad has scored 830 runs in this format at a strike rate of above 100.
Yuzvendra Chahal: India’s wicket-taker Yuzi Chahal bowled well in patches if we talk about the first game. He was well in control but gave away a few easy deliveries too. The leggie has taken 97 wickets in ODI format and would like to touch the 3 figures in this game.

SA vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction
After losing the first game, India is expected to come back with all guns blazing. They need to win this series to ensure they don’t go empty-handed from South Africa. With Suryakumar Yadav expected to be back in the side in place of Venkatesh Iyer, Men in Blue should win this with a better-balanced team.
SA vs IND Grand League Tips
Select spinners in your line-up as the pitch was slower in the first game and they are expected to play on the same pitch again.
The top-order batters are expected to put up the big runs as the pitch will get slower later. Also, once the batters will be set, it will be easier for them to be big.
Choose batters of the team batting first as tour captain as that will be the easiest time to bat on this pitch.
