South Africa vs India 1st ODI Match Prediction

India will be disappointed that they missed out on a golden opportunity to win a Test series in South Africa. However, they will now be focused on winning the ODI series. They won the series last time as well but can replicate their performance against this in-form team. Read our preview for the first ODI that gets underway Boland Park, Paarl at 2:00 PM IST

After an enthralling Test series, the teams are set to lock horns in the ODIs. The last time India played an ODI series in South Africa, they thrashes South Africa 5-1. There will be a few changes in the squads for both teams. Several Test specialists will be out and will be replaced by new faces. Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad among others have been named in India squad, while David Miller, Zubayr Hamza, Jannemann Malan, Quinton de Kock will be back for South Africa.

On paper, both teams look on par and it’s expected to be a close series. India last played an ODI series against Sri Lanka which they won. South Africa too locked horns with Sri Lanka in their last series and suffered a 2-1 loss. At the moment, it’s even stevens before the start of ODI series.

Read on as we preview this game. The Group 1 match begins at 14:00 local time.

South Africa came into the tournament in excellent form in this format. They have got over the storm regarding Quinton de Kock and look like they could go a long way in this tournament.

Bangladesh have disappointed many in this competition. They will also be without star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for the rest of this World Cup and will have to play out of their skin to get a result in this match.

Australia vs Sri Lanka T20 World Cup Match Prediction

Thursday’s only 2021 T20 World Cup fixture sees Australia take on Sri Lanka in Group 1 in Dubai. Australia got their tournament off to a good start with a 5 wicket win over South Africa on Saturday. Sri Lanka won their first match in this year’s Super 12 stage, beating Bangladesh by 5 wickets on Sunday. Read on as we preview this match. The game begins at the Dubai Cricket Stadium, Dubai at 18:00 local time.

Australia came into the tournament looking for form and with very few pundits tipping them for success. However, they have already brushed aside an in-form South Africa team and will be looking to build on that performance.

After Scotland were thrashed by Afghanistan, Sri Lanka are now the only team to have navigated the First Round and still to have a 100% record in the competition. This will be their toughest test so far but they are in excellent form.

Date –  Oct 28, 2021

Time – 19:30 IST / 14:00 GMT
