India to lock horns with South Africa in Durban for 1st ODI, Match preview

After winning the 3 match test series against India 2-0, host South Africa will now clash with India in a 6 match ODI series. The first match will be hosted in Durban at the Kingsmead. A finger injury has ruled AB de Villiers out of the first three ODIs which means there will be more dependency on Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis when it comes to batting. For India all hopes will be on Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan to give India a roaring start up the order. South Africa have won their last five ODIs here and we predict them to make it six in a row on Thursday, unless Kohli comes up with a plan to play spoil sport for the Porteas.
