Ind v Sa highlights today – Sixth one day international from SuperSport Park, Centurion (South Africa) Friday 16th February 2018. As we know India has already won the series very comfortably. Now final ODI will be played today and it could be very interesting because South Africa have lost four matches and got just one match victory, which was not a complete 50 overs match. Now they are very desperate to get another one victory at home.
From the last five ODI stats, Kuldeep Yadav took sixteen wickets. YS Chahal took fourteen wickets and JJ Bumrah took six wickets. Captain of the Indian team V Kohli scored 429 runs. S Dhawan scored 305 runs and RG Sharma scored 155 runs and he is the third most runs scorer so far. From this ODI series, second ODI was played here at SuperSport Park, Centurion ground and in that match, South Africa was all out at 118 and India had chased the target in 20.3 overs with just one wicket down.
India won the toss and will bowl first.
Kohli: As a batting unit, we want to embrace the pressure of chasing. We want to get used to the mindset and get out of the comfort zone and want the bowlers to get used to a situation they might encounter in a crunch game. We only have one chance. Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar) gets a rest. He has been batting well too and it has taken a toll on his body. Shardul Thakur comes in. He’s an exciting talent and bowls a heavy ball.
Markram: We are just starting to put out the perfect game today. The pitch looks a cracker. The Supersport Park pitch is always a good one to bat on. We have four changes: Morris, Zondo, Tahir, and Behardien are back.
Vignesh Eswaram: “It is good Bhuvi is rested. Kohli should have rested Bumrah also as we have a t20 series coming up. ”
