IND vs SA 1st ODI Playing-11: Dhawan or Rituraj, who will open with Rahul?

IND vs SA 1st ODI Playing-11

IND vs SA 1st ODI Playing-11 India and South Africa will play the first match of the three-match ODI series today. For the first time in ODIs, Team India will be captained by KL Rahul. Despite the fact that Rohit Sharma was supposed to captain the team for this series, he was injured just before the South African tour. KL Rahul has been named captain, and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been named vice-captain in this situation. The first One-Day International will begin at 2 p.m. today in Paarl.

Virat will only participate as a player.

For the first time since October 2016, Virat Kohli will take the field as a player rather than a captain when Team India takes the field on Wednesday. It will now be interesting to see how he establishes himself in this role. Kohli will be hoping to regain his form now that the captaincy has been lifted from his shoulders.

Although his Test form has been poor, he has played well in one-day internationals. Kohli has scored 560 runs in 12 One-Day Internationals since 2020, with an average of 46.66 and a strike rate of 90.90. In this series, he will be in charge of the middle order.
