The fifth match of the 6 ODI series will be played in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday between Team India and South Africa. Under the leadership of captain Virat Kohli, Team India will have to capture the match by winning the match. At the same time, the hosts will be able to save the series by winning the second consecutive match. Earlier, Team India had managed to keep the series alive by defeating the Proteas team by 5 wickets in Johannesburg.
Let’s know that Captain Virat can get 11 players to win the series on their own ..
Rohit Sharma, who is called Team India’s ‘Hitman’, has not been able to do any great on this tour so far, but keeping his experience in mind, Kohli can once again give him a place in the team. At the same time, Shikhar Dhawan had made a wonderful 109 in the one-dayers in Johannesburg. In this sense, we can see these two again once we open.
Captain Kohli, who has scored two centuries and a half century in the series, will also be seen in the role of middle order in this match. Apart from this, Ajinkya Rahane will also be seen accompanying him. While a change in this match is being considered almost certain. According to sources, Manish Pandey could get an opportunity to replace Shreyas Iyer in this match.
In Lower Low, wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Hardik Pandya are scheduled to play. Dhoni’s average one-day average is around 60. If Dhoni manages to score 46 runs in this match, then his one-day career will complete 10 thousand runs. With this, he will become Team India’s fourth and world’s 12th batsman.
Team India – Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni, Yuswendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jaspreet Bumrah.
