India vs Southafrica 5th ODI Playing 11 and Match Prediction:
After three superb wins on the trot, India suffered their 1st defeat of the 6 match ODI series against South Africa in the 4th ODI in Johannesburg. The two teams will now head to Port Elizabeth for the all-important 5th ODI. Here we take a look at India and South Africa’s Predicted 11 line-up for the 5th ODI in Port Elizabeth.
Apart from a couple of batsmen, it has been the spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav that has been instrumental in India’s success in the ongoing series. However, both of them were at the end of some fierce hitting in the last match. Now the important question here is that whether the South African batsmen will continue attacking the duo in order to unsettle them or will they again go back into their shell like before.
- South Africa can bring back Imran Tahir in playing11 in place of Lungi Ngidi as pitch is helpful for spinners
- Kedar Jadhav will be assessed before the match, if he found fit then Shreyas Iyer will make way for him.
