Watch Ind vs Saf 2nd ODI Live Streaming
MS Dhoni must have never felt so low in his career. A captain who has won ODI World Cup, T20 World Cup, Champions Trophy, IPL and Champions League T20 seems to be at the lowest of his captaincy tenure. We all know he is capable of inspiring the team to bounce back and hopefully India puts up a winning fight this time in the 2nd ODI. Watch India vs South Africa 2nd ODI live streaming and telecast on Star Sports HD and HotStar.
South African team is still unbeaten on this tour. After winning the T20 series 2-0, they nailed a tight win over India at Kanpur. After scoring a little above 300, South African bowlers managed to restrict the Indian team just below 300. India faced another loss that could have easily been a win. Rohit Sharma scored another good century to see his efforts in vain. Ajinkya Rahane's return to the team was beneficial as he scored a good 60. He played well under pressure and had a good partnership with Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma pointed out that Indian bowlers need to restrict the South African batsmen. A score of 250 in 47 overs was converted to 300 plus score in the end. Bowlers leaked a lot of runs while AB de Villiers feasted on them. He scored 104 runs in just 73 balls. Apart from AB de Villiers, South Africa is glad to see JP Duminy in good touch.
India's best bowler R Ashwin has picked up side strain and he won't play for atleast next three matches. Now Dhoni might have to select the experience Harbhajan for the Indore ODI. Hopefully Bhajji will form a good duo with Amit Mishra.
The Holkar Stadium in Indore will be the venue for the 2nd ODI. Indian team has never tasted a loss here. In the last three ODI matches played here, India has won all of them. Curator Samandar Singh Chauhan is well known to create high run scoring tracks here. It was this very stadium where Virender Sehwag scored 219 runs against West Indies in an ODI.
The cricket fans can expect another run feast in the 2nd ODI. Stay tuned with HotStar and Star Sports for live action in India.
