India vs South Africa 5th ODI Prediction Who Will Win? IND vs SA Match Prediction, South Africa vs India Today Match Prediction: The 5th ODI match is scheduled to be played on February 13 at the St George’s Park, Port Elizabeth. The thundering storm finally found some resistance in South Africa and ironically the storm was quelled by rain. The Indian team had been on a rampage in South Africa ever since they won that famous test match in Capetown. They defeated the hapless South Africans emphatically in the first three ODI’s to take an unassailable lead in the 6 matches one-day series.
However, the dream run came to an abrupt end in the 4th ODI when the rain God’s played spoil-sport and the South Africans won by the D/L method once the rain stopped play.
The matches have been a kind of revelation not only for India but also for World Cricket. The emergence of two wrist spinners and also a team winning so comfortably away from home are two great takeaways from the already happening series.
If we look into the 5th ODI, Port Elizabeth offers the same prospect as other pitches so far. Pacy and bouncy tracks with undesired assistance to the wrist spinners. The way Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal have bowled this series, they seem destined to torment the Proteas batsmen furthermore.
The spin twins have spun a web around the batsmen and are taking crucial wickets in the middle overs and at the same time containing runs. They have been ably aided by the speedsters Bumrah and Bhuvi. Pandya provides the perfect foil to the pack with his knack of picking important wickets. However the wrist spinners took a beating in the 4th ODI owing to the wet ball, the current drought season in South Africa would mean a flood of wickets to the spinners.
As for batting the memes on Rohit Sharma have exceeded the runs he has scored on the tour. The team needs to decide if they want to persist with him or give chance to other batsmen. Kohli and Dhawan are in imperious form and they are taking full advantage of an inexperienced South African attack. Rahane and rest haven’t been tested much but they have contributed whenever they are called for action.
As for South Africa, it seems they are lost in their own house. Nothing seems to be going well for them and their misery has been compounded by the injuries to top players. The return of ABD might well give them some much-needed boost and they recover well from the precarious situation that they find themselves in.
