Will team India avenge test series loss?
Though test series was a disappointment, India ended the series with a smile. It was a satisfaction for India to win a test on African soil. India chances are bright compared in ODI’s compared to test. Chances of contrast result in ODI’s is anticipated. Gap between the teams is not significant thogh South Africa play on their soil. One more advantage for India is ACE batsmen of South Africa de Villiers is not available for the first three ODI’s. We should wait and see if Kohli’s entourage can capitalize on the favourable conditions. Durban will host the first India VS South Africa ODI.
Will Rehane be included in the squad
Kohli and selection committee faced severe criticism for not including Ajinkya Rehane for the first two tests. He is regarded as best overseas batsmen in current Indian team. But he didnt contribute to India’s win third test. Either Kuldeep or Chahal will be part of the side considering the condition of the pitch. Pacers lived up to expectation will be part of one day side too. ROhit Sharma will play in his favourite position.

Proteas without ABD
Even in the absence ofABD South Africa are a formidable team. But his absence is a strong blow to the side. With like of Amla, De Kock, Du Plesis in batting and Morkle ,Tahir South are decent team. India’s cances depend on how they tackle the first ten over’s of pace bowling.
