India vs South Africa 2nd ODI: India  likely to win the first ODI against South Africa

The second ODI between India and South Africa will take place on Sunday (9th October) in Ranchi. It’ll be a do-or-die encounter for the Shikhar Dhawan-led side as they a loss would mean they would lose the series. Whereas the Proteas would want to seal the series in the second game itself.

Talking about the prediction of the game, there’s a high chance that the Indian Cricket Team would win the second game and level the series 1-1. The reason they are favourites to win the game is their ability to perform under the pressure.

Skipper Shikhar Dhawan will likely step up for his side and along with the young guns including Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson will, they are likely to tackle the threatening South African pace attack. Also, they have a decent bowling line up and they can likely win the second game.

India has a balanced record at the venue. They have managed only two wins in five games and have suffered two defeats. However, it is expected that they will set the stage on fire in the second game and will level the series.
