South Africa VS India 1st ODI Match Prediction 01-02-2018
South Africa VS India 1st ODI: India tour to South Africa series 2018. Indian players always try to smash every team in every format. They always try to show that they are best, no doubt they are but they feel proud of it. They always try to neaping every team and players also in the ground during a match. That is not very well, they should try to respect to whole players and Cricketers. Well, I have not pointed out Indian Team they are good as well as but they try to see the sportsmen Spirit. South Africa VS India were played Test match series in the South African home ground and South Africa beat them by 2-1.
India loses their 1st two matches and last one they lose from India. After the Test match series, the ODI series will start tomorrow on Thursday, 01-02-2018. India wants to win the ODI series against their opponents. Both sides are too much though. I have never predicted here which one won their first ODI match. I have said India here because they revenge from their opponents of the Test series. Well, South Africa is also heavy side. As batting, bowling and fielding are outstanding. India is also the though side, there the batting line up is very strong bowling and fielding is also good. Well, I have to enjoy to see this series. Because both sides are too much though.
Durban’s surface can sometimes be a little slower than others around the country. It will definitely not have the pace of the Highveld venues the teams have just come from. Rain is forecast for the early afternoon but should stop later on, though the cloud cover will remain with temperatures in the early 20s. So, Maybe which side won the coin toss, they try to bat first as to follow the Pitch terms and conditions. Well, I predicted that India will win the coin toss and elected to bat first against South Africa.

Team South Africa news
AB de Villiers’ injury opens a spot in the middle-order that du Plessis confirmed will be filled by Aiden Markram, meaning Khaya Zondo will have to wait to make his debut. The rest of the batting is familiar, with JP Duminy coming off a run of good scores in the domestic one-day cup. Lungi Ngidi may have to wait for his first fifty-over appearance if South Africa opt for Morne Morkel, with Imran Tahir likely to start as the sole specialist spinner.

Team India News
India seems set to become more flexible with Ajinkya Rahane’s role after having pigeonholed him into the opening slot earlier last year. He could be playing at No. 4 given there will be pace on offer throughout the innings in conditions in South Africa and England, where the World Cup will be played. They seem to be set with whom they want at Nos 5, 6 and 7: Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, and MS Dhoni. Another decision they will have to make is whether they play two specialist spinners.

“AB is not playing this game so Aiden Markram is coming into his place and we’re giving him an opportunity to bat in different places in our batting order. That’s also a great way to evolve your own game, learn different situations at different times and it will be a nice learning curve for him.”
Faf du Plessis explains why Aiden Markram will slot in for AB de Villiers.
As my Prediction India will win the match because they played sensible cricket against South Africa and they shall be defeated their opponents.
