India Vs South Africa 2018, 4th ODI, Africa wins the fourth ODI by D/L Method
Written by Abhishek Lohia

Four hours is remaining for the live action of India vs South Africa 4th ODI; the match will be played on The Wanderers, Johannesburg. The previous record at this pitch is not good for Team India; they lost the game against Homie Proteas in 2013, where Quinton De-cock scored a fabulous hundred. India lost that match by 141 runs. But.. this time conditions are different, players are different and also form is different. Batsman Shreyas Iyer got a chance to perform in this series. Kedhar Jadhav is dropped in this match.

Team News- De Villiers’s return will extend the batting order of South Africa which means, no space for Khaya Zondo. Morne Morkel could return either in place of Kagiso Rabada or Lungi Ngidi. Between Shamsi and Tahir, Africa will go with Tahir. There is some rain forecast on the day of the match. So there could be extra on offer for seamers only if there is a bit of rain.

Probable XI: Aiden Markram (capt), Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, AB de Villiers, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada/Lungi Ngidi, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir.

Team News- The average score batting first in Day-Night ODI at the Wanderers is 234. Virat Kohli has four hundred in his last six ODIs and Shikhar Dhawan will be playing his 100th ODI. Ajinkya Rahane and Hardik Pandya will manage the Middle order of Team India, while Dhoni will play as a match finisher.

Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (capt), Ajinkya Rahane, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
