Proteas sweat it out ahead of 1st ODI against India

Ajinkya Rahane most likely No. 3 for World Cup: Virat Kohli

Ajinkya Rahane most likely No. 3 for World Cup: Virat Kohli

India's South African summer, which has seen them hit highs and lows in equal measure and given them several nerve-jangling moments, is far from over.

After winning the test series convincingly the Proteas would have been hoping to make India taste defeat in the ODI series as well.

The first match of the series takes place at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Thursday.

South Africa has been dealt huge blow ahead of the six-match one-day global series against India. If you look back to a team like England, who bats quite deep ' they probably bat until 10 or 11 at times ' I guess they can afford to lose a couple of wickets in the middle in trying to be a little aggressive.

He also said that North Korea may be able to strike the U.S. with nuclear missiles "in a handful of months ". "I have every expectation that they will continue to try and do that".

South Africa's star batsman and one of the best batsmen in modern day cricket, AB De Villiers has been ruled out of the first 3 games as the stalwart batsman has his finger injured. South Africa are on top of the International Cricket Council one-day rankings by a slender one point from India . We can test ourselves as to how we respond to situations. After the intense three-Test series, the second leg of the tour, expected to be equally gruelling if not more, began on Tuesday morning with Virat Kohli & Co getting down to a full practice session here at the Kingsmead. "Yes, in a few months' time, we'll be teammates". We've spoken and said that one format (at a time) will be good for the players' sake.

"We are very keen to win this ODI series". Yes, at the back of our minds it will always be there.

On India's poor record in Durban: I don't think these things matter because so many things change.

The two sides' recent meeting in a bilateral ODI series came in India in 2015, when the visitors won the series 3-2.
