After a crushing defeat in the ODI series against New Zealand, the Indian team is desperate to return to the winning track once again. They now has to play a three-match ODI series against South Africa on home ground, which starts on Thursday. It is a relief for Team India that its experienced and star players have returned after recovering from injury.
In such a situation, Team India can field a strong team led by Virat in the first ODI, which can be something like this,
After Shikhar Dhawan's return, he can be handed the batting once again, while in the absence of Rohit Sharma, Prithvi Shaw can again lead the Indian innings.
The responsibility of the middle order will once again be on the shoulders of captain Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer. However, Virat Kohli, who is struggling with his form, will try to get the rhythm from this home series.
Hardik Pandya, who is back after recovering from injury, has joined the team once again after seven months, so the fast bowling batsman can make a place in the team. At the same time, Ravindra Jadeja's place, which has been performing consistently well for the team, is almost certain.
After a tremendous performance in ODIs and T20s, KL Rahul has confirmed his place as a wicket-keeper batsman in the team, so he can be seen in the same role once again.
Mohammed Shammi has been rested in the series and Bhuvneshwar Kumar is returning. In such a situation, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaspreet Bumrah and Navdeep Saini can handle the bowling attack and Kuldeep can get a chance as a spinner.
