Venkatesh Iyer can debut
IND vs SA 1st ODI, India playing XI vs SA: Venkatesh Iyer, who is included in the squad, may get a chance to debut in the first ODI. On the other hand, there will be a tough fight between Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer to bat at number four. Iyer had scored a century in his debut Test, so there is a strong possibility that he may get a chance in the playing 11. The responsibility of opening will be on the shoulders of captain KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan. In such a situation, Rituraj may have to sit on the bench once again.
Ashwin’s comeback after five years
IND vs SA: At the same time, former captain Virat Kohli is sure to come at number three. Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant will get a chance at number five. If this happens then Ishaan Kishan will have to sit outside. At the same time, all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer can get a chance at number six. He can make his ODI debut in the first match. In Jadeja’s absence, Ashwin will return to the ODI team after almost five years. He played his last ODI on 30 June 2017 against West Indies.
Chahal can be another spinner
At the same time, Yuzvendra Chahal can be given a chance in the team as the second spinner. If Venkatesh makes his debut in this match, then the team will have the option of bowling the fourth seam. At the same time, the responsibility of fast bowling will be on the shoulders of vice-captain Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. While the third seam option will be between Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and Mohammad Siraj. If Siraj happens to be fit, he is more likely to be included in the team. Otherwise Shardul will be given a chance.
