India had a disappointing test series against South Africa which they lost by a score of 2-1; further, this loss is expected to lead to many significant changes across the test team. Firstly the side is going to see a change in leadership; as Virat Kohli has decided to step down from that role; as he felt that he wasn’t being to do due diligence to the role put upon him. It is expected that either Rohit Sharma or KL Rahul will take over this role going forward. Furthermore, another big change which is expected to be indicated is a change in batting personal across the side!
After this disappointing test series; India will face South Africa in a three-game ODI series. The first match will be played on the 19th of January at 2 pm IST; later the second match will be played on the 21st of January at 2 pm IST. Lastly, the two sides will play in the third ODI which will be played on the 23rd of January at 2 pm IST. This will be an extremely explosive match-up between two even teams; currently, India is coming 4th in the ICC ODI team rankings; their opponents South Africa are coming 5th in the rankings trailing by a narrow margin of 15 ratings!
