Catch the live updates between Ind vs RSA at Boland Park, Paarl
Much has gone on behind the scenes with Kohli giving up Test captaincy as well. Naturally, the focus will be on him, as it will be on de Kock who pulled a shocker as he announced his retirement from the longest format.
Hello and welcome everyone to our live coverage of India’s tour of South Africa. We were left wanting for more after a fascinating three-match Test series that saw South Africa come from behind to nick it 2-1. But that’s the world we live in, where England get to suffer for five. Time to move on to the ODIs. We’ve got three of them, and there’s no World Cup Super League points at stake, which makes it a bit ‘meh’ as Telford Vice writes in his preview below.
South Africa (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma(c), David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi
India (Playing XI): KL Rahul(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Venkatesh Iyer, Shardul Thakur, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal

What they said:
“Quinton and Janneman have done fairly well so I don’t see that changing. I come back into the picture at No.3. Then it’s the middle order – whether we want to go with an extra batter or an allrounder at No. 6. That’s the real conversation that needs to happen.” – Temba Bavuma lets us into his thinking about the make-up of South Africa’s XI.
“Under Virat, team India have done some phenomenal things. We’ve won series outside India, something that hasn’t been done before. We’ve gone to every country and won a series. He has done a lot of things right and set a standard for all of us and team India. As a team, and for me, it’s all about building on that. We obviously know what it takes to be a champion team. We’ve got to keep improving and stay as disciplined and as determined as that, and go out and enjoy our cricket. Virat had this amazing ability to get the best out of everybody. He pushed everybody and made us believe that we could do special things. That’s something that I’ve learned from him and hopefully I can do that with the team as well.” – KL Rahul on filling the biggest boots in cricket.
