India vs South Africa: India will be taking on South Africa in the first ODI of the three-match series at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Sunday, June 16. The Women in Blue will be looking to start their home season on a positive note. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur will be hoping for a clinical performance from her team. Meanwhile, South Africa will need to adjust to the conditions. Skipper Laura Wolvaardt will be hoping that the side can put on a decent show.

India haven’t been in the best of ODI form currently. They last played a series against Bangladesh where they won the T20I series 5-0. However, their last ODI series was against Australia where they suffered a defeat to Australia by 3-0 margin.India are a brute force at home thus the clean sweep against Australia would have hurt the team. The team has named a strong squad for the South Africa series and will be looking for favourable results.

On the other hand, South Africa have been in ordinary form in ODI cricket. The India series won’t be easy for South Africa. The team featured in the series against Sri Lanka where they lost the T20I series but managed to level up the ODI series 1-1. South Africa would have to be in peak form to test this Indian team. The visitors will aim to have a positive start to this long tour with a win in this encounter.

India vs South Africa, 1st ODI – Key Players


  1. Smriti Mandhana – Indian side will be relying on the likes of Smriti Mandhana to deliver the bulk of the runs. She is a top batter and is one of the best batters in the Indian squad. Mandhana plays for the Bengaluru Franchise in the WPL and she has great experience playing in this ground. She can take India off to prolific starts in the upcoming ODI matches.
  2. Renuka Singh – She has been one of the most consistent Indian bowlers over a long period of time. If Singh finds her rhythm in the series, India will have a great chance to win it against South Africa. Renuka will lead the pace attack and will look for a decent show.

South Africa

  1. Laura Wolvaardt – She looked in fine form against Sri Lanka recently. Wolvaardt displayed outstanding performance in that series and scored 158 runs in two games, including a hundred. She would be inclined to give fine performances with the bat for her team.
  2. Marizanne Kapp – One of the best all rounders in South Africa women’s cricket, Marizanne Kapp can play a big role for her team in the upcoming ODI’s against India.
