SA vs IND Stats Review: India Tour Of South Africa 2021-22, 3rd ODI

SA vs IND: As South Africa beat India by 4 runs in a thrilling finish at Cape Town, let’s look at some relevant numbers of this match.

Clean sweep:

It’s the first time South Africa whitewashed India in an ODI series. In 2006 they beat India by 4-0 when the first match of the series was washed out. Overall this is the 5th time India faced a whitewash in 3 (or more) match series. India faced a 3-0 whitewash against New Zealand in February 2020, coincidentally the last time South Africa whitewashed an ODI series, was also in Feb-Mar 2020 when they beat Australia by 3-0.

 

Quin-Ton de Kock:

Quinton de Kock (124) smashed another hundred against India. It was the 6th ODI hundred against in India in only 16 innings. Only Sanath Jayasuriya scored more ODI hundreds (7) against India while AB de Villiers, Ricky Ponting, and Kumar Sangakkara also smashed 6 hundreds each. de Kock also completed 1000 runs against India.

Overall it was his 17th ODI hundred in his career. Now he’s second in the tally of most ODI hundred by a wicketkeeper. Only Kumar Sangakkara (23) is ahead of him, Adam Gilchrist had 16.

Catch it, Temba:

Apart from captaincy, Temba Bavuma had a terrific day on the field as well as he took 4 catches in Indian innings. He became the 7th fielder from South Africa to take 4 (or more) catches in an ODI. Kepler Wessels, Ashwell Prince, Graeme Smith, Hashim Amla, and Rilee Rossouw also picked 4 catches in an ODI while Jonty Rhodes holds the world record of most catches (5) by a  non-wicketkeeper, he achieved this feat against West Indies in Mumbai in 1993.

Caught in a trap:

In Indian innings, all 10 batters were dismissed as ‘Caught’. It’s only 5th time happened for India when all 10 batters were dismissed ‘Caught’ in an ODI.

Previous occasions:

vs Pakistan at Birmingham 2004

vs West Indies at Chennai 2007

vs New Zealand at Dambulla 2010

vs Australia at Canberra 2016

So close yet so far:

This (4-runs) is the closest defeat India faced against South Africa in ODIs. The previous closest defeat in terms of runs was when the Proteas beat India by 5 runs at Kanpur 2015.

SA vs IND-Horrible start for skipper:

KL Rahul has become the first Indian captain to lose the first three ODIs as captain. Dhoni also couldn’t get a win in his first three ODIs but his first match as captain was washed out.

South Africa Fined 20% Match Fee For Maintaining A Slow Over-Rate In The 2nd ODI

South Africa has been fined a 20% match fee for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second ODI against India. ICC released a statement to confirm the news.

Match referee Andy Pycroft imposed the sanction after South Africa fell one over short after time allowances were taken into consideration.

South Africa has taken an unassailable lead of 2-0 in 3-match series

In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fee for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time,” the ICC released a statement.

Interestingly this series is not part of the ODI Super League otherwise South Africa would have faced points deduction as well.

On-field umpires Marais Erasmus and Adrien Holdstock, third umpire Bongani Jele and fourth umpire Allauhudien Palekar levelled the charge,” the release added.

“Bavuma pleaded guilty to the offence and accepted the proposed sanction, so there was no need for a formal hearing,” it added further.

On Friday South Africa chased down the target of 288 at the loss of only 3 wickets as the hosts wrapped up the series with one match to go. Like the first ODI, the proteas dominated the Indian bowling attack.

First Quinton de Kock (78) and Janneman Malan (91) gave India a century stand then skipper Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, and Rassie Van der Dussen chipped in to take the hosts home without much discomfort.

The visitors put on a total of 287/6 with the help of a terrific knock of Rishabh Pant 85(71). Skipper KL Rahul also scored a fifty while cameos from Shardul Thakur and R Ashwin helped India to reach a par score.

Earlier in the first ODI, the story was pretty much similar as South Africa posted a total of 296/4 with the help of hundreds by Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen. The duo put a double century stand for the 4th wicket.

In response, India was well on course for the chase but they collapsed from 138/1 to 265/8 as none of their middle-order batters could capitalize on the solid start given by Kohli and Dhawan.

Janneman Malan Praised Fellow Opener Quinton de Kock After Proteas Win 2nd ODI

Janneman Malan heaped praises on his opening partner Quinton de Kock after South Africa’s series-clinching 2nd ODI win against India at Boland Park on Friday. At just 29 years of age and having played 54 Tests, Quinton de Kock announced his retirement from the traditional format at the end of the opening Test against India, which the Proteas lost by 113 runs at SuperSport Park.

Quinton de Kock (78) and Janneman Malan (91) rose to the occasion with the bat as South Africa defeated India by seven wickets in the second ODI to gain an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. For South Africa, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram remained unbeaten on 37 each.

Janneman Malan Reckons Quinton de Kock Made It Easy For Him At The Start

Some outstanding spin bowling from Tabraiz Shamsi, Keshav Maharaj, and Aiden Markram helped restrict India to 287/6 in the first innings, despite a typically vibrant 85 from Rishabh Pant seemingly having set the away side up for a far bigger total.

Quinton de Kock set the standard in the stiff run chase with an early salvo that put the Proteas ahead of the required rate, with each of the South African top five contributing as they reached the target with 11 balls remaining.

“Quinton made it easy for me at the start,” said Malan in the virtual press conference after the match. “I just tried to give him as much strike as possible because I just wanted to let him go do his thing. He played a couple of ridiculous shots, which are good signs.”

“He is one of the best batters in the world when he gets going, so it was good to bat with him,” he added.

Talking about facing Indian bowlers, Malan shared his experience as batter said: “Guys like me who have seen them bowling at IPL and international level. So it was good to go out against them. You need more time to face guys like those because you need to get the rhythm of each one of them. So it was a kinda challenge for me to do it in the first and second game.”

“It’s obviously not the best bowling conditions but they are a world-class team and bowlers so it’s good to have a challenge from them,” the 25-year-old added.

Wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant registered a career-best 85 off 71 balls as India managed to set up a 288-run target against South Africa. But, South African openers Janneman Malan and Quinton de Kock added 132 for the opening wicket as the Proteas eased to victory by seven wickets.

Riding on half-centuries from Janneman Malan and Quinton de Kock, South Africa beat India by 7 wickets in the second One Day Internationals on Friday to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in three-match series. Janneman Malan (91) missed his well-deserved century by 9 runs, while Quinton de Kock scored 78 runs as South Africa chased down the stiff target of 288 with 11 balls to spare. It was a fourth back-to-back defeat for India on this tour.

Janneman Malan Happy For South Africa Having Good Partnerships In The Ongoing ODI Series

The partnerships among South African batters are one of the major factors in Proteas’ successes in this series.

Shedding light on that, Malan said: “We were happy to have two hundred in the previous game, and maybe we could have had me or Quinny getting to a hundred, but I’m very proud of the partnerships we had.”

“We had a hundred partnership and two 50 partnerships, which means the batters are coming in with good plans and good intent and building nice partnerships to make it easier for each other. It’s a very good sign,” he added. 

Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen’s twin centuries helped South Africa beat India by 31 runs in the first match of the three-match series at Boland Park, Paarl.

South Africa captain Temba Bavuma (110) and Rassie van der Dussen (129*) stitched together South Africa’s second-highest partnership (204) against India and helped the hosts reach 296 for 4 at the end of their innings. Chasing 297 on a sluggish pitch, the visitors only managed 265/8 in their 50 overs.

Sunil Gavaskar Unable To Understand Why Venkatesh Iyer Didn’t Bowl A Single Over In 1st ODI Against Proteas

Sunil Gavaskar could not wrap his head around the fact that all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer was not given a single over to bowl by India captain KL Rahul during the first ODI against South Africa in Paarl on Wednesday.

With South Africa stitching a 200-plus-run partnership around centurions Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen, ODI debutant Venkatesh Iyer was not given the ball despite India’s bowlers not tasting any success.

In the team as an all-rounder, Venkatesh Iyer got the not ahead of Suryakumar Yadav. If the plan was for Venkatesh Iyer not to bowl, India opting for Suryakumar Yadav ahead of him could have been a better option.

Sunil Gavaskar: Venkatesh Iyer Could Have Broken Partnership As Oppositions Didn’t Know Much About The ODI Debutant All-Rounder

Puzzled by this move, Sunil Gavaskar reckons a bowler like Venkatesh Iyer, whom teams haven’t seen much of, could have helped India break the massive partnership between Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen and allowed India to come back into the game.

“Only the captain has the answer as to why Venkatesh wasn’t bowled even once. He is a new player who has just made a name for himself in the last 4-5 months. That is why he is in the Indian team. But oppositions don’t know much about him. And when such a scenario arises, giving a couple of overs will allow the batters to know him,” Sunil Gavaskar said.

“And sometimes, that rhythm with which the batters are playing can also break. Had he given an over, something else could have happened. He could have given away 20-25 runs but at least it would have been something different,” Sunil Gavaskar said.

Debutant Venkatesh Iyer was not utilized for his bowling ability, raising question marks over his presence as an additional bowling option.

Sunil Gavaskar: Shivam Dube Also Didn’t Get Much Chances And Encouragement Before Being Dropped

Failing to understand the head and toe of the decision, Sunil Gavaskar added that something similar happened with Shivam Dube. Shivam Dube made his India debut in a T20I against Bangladesh in November 2019. Till now he has played 13 T20Is in which he has slammed a half-century and has best bowling figures of 3/30. Apart from that, he has also played an ODI against the West Indies in 2019.

Although in the press conference, India batter Shikhar Dhawan explained why Venkatesh Iyer wasn’t asked to bowl, saying that the spinners bowled well in tandem but numbers throw up a contrasting story. Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin combined to pick just 1 wicket for 106 runs as India managed to pick up only one wicket in the last 32 overs of the South African innings.

“I can’t understand. Whenever a partnership is flourishing, a bowler whom the opposition hasn’t ever faced, could be a good choice. Something similar happened with Shivam Dube. He too did not get the chances and encouragement that he should have. What is the reason behind it is something that might be answered in the press conference? What planning, what strategy was it that you didn’t even give him a single over,” Sunil Gavaskar pointed out.

Venkatesh Iyer didn’t get a chance to roll his arm over as the proteas posted the total of 296/4 and also as he got a chance to bat, he was caught in the deep against a short ball at his individual score of 2 and India eventually fell short by 31 runs.

Venkatesh Iyer, the opening batsman, and pacer had a sensational run in the UAE leg of IPL 2021 by amassing 370 runs in just 10 games. From taking to the IPL 2021 by storm to getting to make his T20I debut for India, things have come thick and fast for Venkatesh Iyer.

All-rounder Venkatesh Iyer got his maiden ODI call for the upcoming South Africa series. Venkatesh Iyer made his international debut against New Zealand last month in T20Is.  The all-rounder played all 3 T20Is at home against 2021 T20I WC runners up New Zealand, scored 36 runs, and picked a solitary scalp.

Sunil Gavaskar Reckons Stand-In Skipper KL Rahul Ran Out Of Ideas In The 1st ODI Against Proteas

Sunil Gavaskar said stand-in captain KL Rahul looked he had run out of ideas when South Africa captain Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen were involved in a match-winning partnership in the first ODI in Paarl on Wednesday. Sunil Gavaskar said it’s still early days for captain KL Rahul and that he hopes India can turn it around in the 2nd and 3rd ODIs of the ongoing series in South Africa.

Sunil Gavaskar questioned India’s bowling changes, highlighting that both Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar needed to bowl more overs at the backend and Venkatesh Iyer could have rolled his arm over in the middle overs to trouble the partnership between Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen that stretched to 204 runs.

South Africa rode on twin centuries from skipper Temba Bavuma (110 off 143 balls) and Player-of-the-Match Rassie van der Dussen (129* off 96 balls) to canter to a 31-run win over India in the first of the three-match ODI series in Paarl on Wednesday. Chasing 297 on a sluggish pitch, the visitors only managed 265/8 in their 50 overs.

Sunil Gavaskar: KL Rahul Ran Out Of Ideas In The 1st ODI

South Africa posted 296/4 on the board after opting to bat and restricted India to 265/8 despite the much-needed fifties from Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, and Shardul Thakur.

“Well, when there is a partnership, sometimes the captain goes out of ideas. I think that is what happened. This was a very good pitch to bat on. The ball was coming onto the bat quite nicely, you can play through the line,” Gavaskar said.

During that partnership, it did look as if he had run out of ideas. KL Rahul didn’t know where to go as despite having two-most experienced death-overs bowlers in Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, they weren’t picked to bowl the last over as Shardul Thakur’s last over saw 17 runs coming instead. Both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur conceded more than 6 runs per over in the 1st ODI.

“But, these are early days of his captaincy and maybe things will turn around, let’s hope for Indian cricket’s sake that things turn around in the next couple of days,” he added.

KL Rahul was leading India in the absence of Rohit Sharma who did not travel to South Africa after suffering a hamstring injury. The Karnataka batter opened the batting for India along with Shikhar Dhawan who scored 79 on the ODI return but failed to get going in the series opener.

Sunil Gavaskar: KL Rahul Needed To Open In Absence Of Rohit Sharma

When asked if KL Rahul should consider playing in the middle-order to beef up the batting unit, Sunil Gavaskar said the stand-in captain needs to open in the absence of Rohit Sharma, whose injured.

“Not when Rohit is not around. He is in the team as an opening batter in all formats of the game. I don’t think he should be looking to bat himself down at No. 4 or 5. Right at the top, he can lead from the front as well,” he added.

Meanwhile, Sunil Gavaskar also heaped praise on Shikhar Dhawan who hit a solid 79 on his return to the ODI side amid doubts over his place in the team.

“As far as Shikhar Dhawan is concerned, he has been scoring runs in the 50-over format, not so much in T20s. So as long as the man is scoring runs, everything else should be put in the background. You should not be going to talk about his age and all that. I don’t see why there should be any talk about it,” Gavaskar added.

India will face South Africa in the 2nd of the 3-match series on Friday, January 21 in Paarl. India skipper KL Rahul won the toss and opted to bat first against South Africa in the second ODI in Paarl. India has gone in unchanged while the Proteas have replaced Marco Jansen with Sisanda Magala. The latter picked the wicket of KL Rahul after he scored 55.

India made a solid start in the second ODI with captain KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan stitching a 63-run opening stand before they lost both Shikhar Dhawan (29) and Virat Kohli (0) successively. India is presently at 187/4 in 34th over after Rishabh Pant scored a quickfire 85.

KL Rahul And Virat Kohli Were Sitting Apart: Danish Kaneria Claims India Divided Into 2 Groups

KL Rahul’s long-term captaincy is at stake and a series defeat against South Africa isn’t going to do his case any good. India will look to make amends in the batting department after South Africa crushed them both strategically as well as on skills in the ODI series opener on Wednesday at Paarl. India had lost the Test series 2-1.

The Indian team stuttered once opener Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, recently snubbed as ODI skipper, were out in quick succession following their 90-plus stand, which eventually led to the batting camp losing wickets in a cluster and falling short of the target by 31 runs. South Africa posted 296/4 on the board after opting to bat and restricted India to 265/8 despite the requisite fifties from Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, and Shardul Thakur.

Danish Kaneria: Indian Dressing Room Divided Into Two Groups

Virat Kohli, playing his first game after relinquishing Test captaincy, scored 51 off 63 deliveries but former Pakistan tweaker Danish Kaneria feels the former ODI skipper wasn’t the usual exuberant self. Danish Kaneria, who bagged 261 wickets in 61 Tests for Pakistan, also pondered a divide in the dressing room after Virat Kohli’s exit from the leadership role.

“We saw that the Indian dressing room was divided into two groups. KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were sitting apart. Also, Kohli wasn’t in the same mood as he used to be when he was the captain. But he’s a team man and will come back stronger,” said Danish Kaneria on his YouTube channel.

“After losing the Test series, India would be eager to redeem themselves and clinch the ODI rubber. But KL Rahul hasn’t shown that spark until now. He had led in the Test series but wasn’t able to lift the team to break the South African partnership.

“At one stage, it didn’t look like the Proteas would put up 296 on the scoreboard. Lack of intensity from the Indian team helped the opposition in scoring such a total. There were also fielding lapses from the visitors,” Danish Kaneria further said.

Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul Thakur were being taken to the cleaners by Rassie van der Dussen and Temba Bavuma. Debutant Venkatesh Iyer was not utilized for his bowling ability, raising question marks over his presence as an additional bowling option.

While the South African spinners left their mark on the wicket, the spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin, in its combined 20 overs, gave away 106 runs for a single wicket. On the other hand, Proteas spinners Aiden Markram, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Keshav Maharaj bowled 26 overs between them for 124 runs and shared four wickets between them.

Danish Kaneria: KL Rahul Needs To Lift Up Captaincy, Batting, And Team

Danish Kaneria feels KL Rahul needs to lift up the team for the second game of the series. During India’s previous ODI series on the South African soil, spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal had combined to snare 33 wickets in six games and Danish Kaneria expects a similar performance from the current pair of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal.

“KL Rahul needs to lift up captaincy and batting as well. He needs to lift the team. Also, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave away many runs against South Africa and the Ashwin-Chahal pair didn’t look effective like the Kuldeep-Chahal duo. India didn’t use Venkatesh Iyer’s bowling services too.

“The next ODI will be played at the same venue and India needs to learn from their mistakes. Their intensity was poor in the series opener,” Danish Kaneria further said.

India will now look for a win to level the series. The hosts have gained a 1-0 lead in the three-match series and the second game will be played on the same ground on Friday. In the 2nd ODI, India opted to bat first and is placed on 119/2 after 23 overs losing the two wickets in the form of Shikhar Dhawan (29) and Virat Kohli (0). KL Rahul (43) and Rishabh Pant (36) are at the crease.

Mark Boucher Charged With Gross Misconduct By CSA And May Be Sacked As Head Coach

Mark Boucher, South Africa head coach has been charged with “gross misconduct” by Cricket South Africa (CSA) in their follow-up to the preliminary findings of alleged racism in the sport in the country by Social Justice and Nation-Building (SJN) report.  Mark Boucher’s alleged role in discrimination experienced by former spinner Paul Adams will be looked into even as he is set to continue as the head coach of the senior national team.

South Africa’s head coach Mark Boucher is in danger of losing his job after Cricket South Africa on Thursday charged him with gross misconduct following allegations of racism against him by his former Proteas teammate spinner Paul Adams. CSA has announced a disciplinary hearing into the allegations.

Mark Boucher Charged With Allegations Of Racism By Paul Adams

CSA on Thursday appointed well respected Senior Counsel Advocate Terry Motau (SC) as chairperson of the disciplinary hearing into allegations of misconduct against Mark Boucher. It is proposed that the parties will meet with the Advocate on January 26, 2022, to determine a timetable for the proceedings.

In December, the SJN report made tentative findings regarding allegations of discrimination and racism against various persons, including Mark Boucher. Specifically, during the SJN process, allegations of racism were levelled against Mark Boucher by his former Proteas teammate Paul Adams.

In releasing his report, the Ombudsman, Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza SC, indicated that he was not in a position to make “definite findings” and recommended that a further process be undertaken in this regard. In keeping with this approach, the Board was obligated to institute further formal inquiries into CSA employees, suppliers, or contractors who are implicated by the SJN report, and this is the first of these processes.

Former spinner Paul Adams said he had been called a “brown shit” in a South Africa team song during his time in the side, which spanned a nine-year period from 1995 to 2004, including by former wicketkeeper Mark Boucher who has since apologized.

Mark Boucher Can Be Sacked As Head Coach

CSA confirmed that it has charged Mark Boucher with gross misconduct and it could lead to his dismissal from the head coach role.

However, “CSA emphasizes it is important that the independent inquiry first needs to test all allegations before any question of sanction can arise.”

The upcoming inquiry will also consider concerns and allegations that arose following the resignation of former assistant coach, Enoch Nkwe.

“The Board remains mindful of its duty to treat allegations of racism or discrimination with the utmost seriousness and in a manner that ensures fairness and due process in terms of South Africa’s Constitution and labour legislation.

“It is now up to the inquiry to determine to which extent the allegations are true and justify the need for further disciplinary steps,” CSA Board Chairperson, Lawson Naidoo said.

Mark Boucher has been a key member of the current South African unit that has achieved incredible highs even while in transition over the last few weeks. Under Mark Boucher’s watch, South Africa defeated India in a 3-Test series after coming back from behind.

The ombudsman’s report also criticized current CSA director of cricket Graeme Smith and former national team captain AB de Villiers. South Africa also outclassed India in the ODI series opener on Wednesday and will look to take a 2-0 unbeatable lead when the two sides meet in the 2nd ODI on Friday in Paarl. India won the toss and will bat first. India is fielding an unchanged team while Sisanda Magala comes in for Marco Jansen for South Africa.

South Africa made a good start to the three-match series with a comfortable 31-run win in the series opener. Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen scored centuries for South Africa; India had three half-centurions in Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, and Shardul Thakur but it went in vain as middle-order batsmen failed.

Quinton de Kock Will Have A Point To Prove In The ODI Series Against India – Temba Bavuma

South Africa white-ball skipper Temba Bavuma has welcomed Quinton de Kock back into the squad. Notable that Quinton de Kock announced a sudden retirement from Test cricket last month as the wicketkeeper was going for paternity leave after playing the first test against India at Centurion.

Quinton de Kock played 54 Tests and scored 3300 runs with 6 hundreds and he also had 232 dismissals as wicketkeeper.

“It is good to see Quinny again. We obviously miss him in the Test team. He has made his decision (to quit) and it is a decision that we respect. Having Quinny again within team is good. Knowing Quinny, he will have a point to prove,” Bavuma said

“I am sure he is also as excited as we are, to be in the team,” added Bavuma in response to a question on how was it like to have de Kock back in the team after the drama surrounding his retirement from Tests in the middle of the series against India,” he added.

Quinton de Kock is a key member of South Africa’s white-ball set-up. He has already scored 16 hundreds in 124 ODI matches. In his last ODI, he scored a hundred against Ireland in July. Before that, he played a match-winning hand 80(86) against Pakistan at Johannesburg.

Bavuma also emphasized the fact to play spin to succeed against India. Notable that India beat the hosts by 5-1 in the last ODI series in 2018.

“Preparation has been happening for the past year actually. The positive result the guys displayed in Sri Lanka during the series there last year. You must have seen in the T20 WC as well. Coming up against India, spin bowling is a strength of them, we will try to prepare as well as we can to mitigate that,” Bavuma stated.

Bavuma believes that South Africa will carry the confidence of test series win. South Africa beat the visitors by 2-1 in the match series as India were chasing their series win after a 1-0 lead at Centurion.

“Yeah, look the Test series went well for the team and me. I think the feet seemed to move well. I would like to carry on with the same feeling. To be honest I have been doing the same things. Maybe it is just a period of good form for me. At the moment, my feet are moving quite well and I am hitting the ball quite well,” he concluded.

India Need To Have A Vision As Each ODI Series Is Important Before 2023 ODI World Cup, Says Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah, an Indian pacer has admitted that having a vision is very important as they approach the 2023 World Cup, which will be played at home. The fast bowler stated that while they have an eye on the ICC event, the team is not looking too far ahead and is treating each series with equal significance.

Having won the 2011 edition, also played at home, India was a semi-finalist in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups. With the World Cup returning to India in 2023, there will be additional pressure on the hosts to win the coveted trophy.

Jasprit Bumrah Wants Teammates To Stay In The Present And Treat Every ODI Series As Significant Before 2023 ODI World cup

At a press conference ahead of the ODI series against South Africa, Jasprit Bumrah was asked if India have begun preparations for the 2023 World Cup.

Jasprit Bumrah responded: “We need to have a vision as to in what direction we need to move for the 2023 World Cup. So the preparations begin in advance. If some new players come in, then we will try to give them equal opportunities.

“Having a vision is very important. But, at the same time, we need to stay in the present and treat each and every series as significant. We need to value that. So yes, having a vision is very important and we will try and implement the same.”

India’s dream to conquer the ‘Final Frontier’ was prolonged after they lost the recently-concluded three-match Test series against South Africa 2-1 from a position of strength despite drawing first blood in the series-opener at Centurion. The teams will feature next in an ODI series which will comprise three games.

The 1st ODI will take place on January 19 at Boland Park in Paarl. The 2nd ODI will also take place at the same venue on January 21. The 3rd and the last ODI is scheduled to be played at Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town on January 23. KL Rahul will be leading the Indian team in the succeeding ODI series whereas, Temba Bavuma would be the Proteas skipper.

Jasprit Bumrah was part of the Indian team that crashed out of the 2019 World Cup following an 18-run defeat to New Zealand in the semi-final in Manchester.

Jasprit Bumrah Doesn’t See Any Discomfort With Mohammed Siraj Who Is Practicing With Teammates

India was dealt a big blow during the Test series when Mohammed Siraj was ruled out of the Cape Town Test due to fitness issues. While he played in the second Test in Johannesburg, he did not look 100 per cent.

Asked for an update on the pacer who has become a critical component of the team in a short span of time, the 28-year-old Jasprit Bumrah asserted: “He’s fine, he is practicing with us. I don’t see any discomfort so hopefully everything stays that way. (Other injury issues) Nothing that I am aware of right now. Everyone seems to be okay.”

India’s three-match ODI series against South Africa will begin with the first game in Boland Park, Paarl on Wednesday, January 19.

India’s off-spinner Washington Sundar was ruled out of the forthcoming ODI series against South Africa after testing positive for COVID-19 during the camp in Bengaluru. Washington Sundar was supposed to travel to Cape Town with the ODI members on Wednesday and join the rest of the squad ahead of the ODI series starting January 19th.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Jayant Yadav as a replacement for Washington Sundar. The Committee also added fast bowler Navdeep Saini to the ODI squad as a back-up for Mohammed Siraj who is still recovering from his hamstring injury that he sustained in the 2nd Test against South Africa in Johannesburg.

India Squad: KL Rahul (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Jayant Yadav, Navdeep Saini.

“I Am Not Worried About What Happened In That 2018 Series”-Temba Bavuma

South Africa‘s limited-overs captain Temba Bavuma doesn’t want to give too much emphasis on what happened in the last ODI series against India at home. Bavuma believes that a series win against India will give the hosts a hell lot of confidence going forward.

Notable that India beat the hosts by 5-1 in 6-match ODI series in 2018 in which India captain Virat Kohli scored 558 runs with 3 hundreds. It was India’s first-ever ODI series win in the rainbow nation.

“We will have to get things right in the next ODI series against India. I’m not too worried about what happened in that 2018 series. I’m more concerned about establishing our own style of play and implementing our strategy to good effect. An ODI series win against India would give us a helluva lot of confidence, and some momentum ahead of the games to follow,” Temba Bavuma spoke to Daily Maverick.

Temba Bavuma who was appointed South Africa’s white-ball captain last year in March is quite satisfied with how the proteas have made progress in last year. Bavuma believes that South African batters play spin better now which reflects in results.

In the Men’s T20 World Cup concluded in November last year, South Africa won 4 out of 5 games as they missed the semifinal berth due to net run rate.

“Perceptions are changing about this South African white-ball team. In the past, it was said that we lacked the ability to take on spin and that we struggled in overseas conditions. I feel like we proved a lot of people wrong at the T20 World Cup. We’ve just got to keep building towards that next T20 World Cup in Australia, which will require another shift in mindset,” he added.

“More emphasis on process, rather than results”- Temba Bavuma

Bavuma also stated that the team is not looking too far ahead as they will take one series at a time. Also, he stressed that they would focus more on getting the process right, rather than worrying about results.

“Perhaps we should take heart from what the T20 side has accomplished in recent times. That team didn’t place much emphasis on results, but rather on the process. We really came to grips with how we wanted to play. There was a lot of energy and intensity, especially with regard to our fielding,” he said.

Under the leadership of Temba Bavuma, South Africa beat West Indies by 3-2 in the T20I series, also clean swept Ireland by 3-0. However, their ODI results didn’t go their way as they lost to Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Also, their series against Ireland ended in a draw.

“Then we start to win consistently. Since the beginning of the West Indies series last June, we’ve won 13 out of 16 T20s. It’s something we want to replicate across the formats. If we bring the same energy to our ODI approach, we will build more confidence and momentum, and the big results will come,” Bavuma concluded.

The first match between India and South Africa will begin on January 19 at Paarl.
