Since the inception of IPL, India has seen abundance of raw talent coming up and proving their worth even at the International level. Many careers have been launched due to IPL and many have reached the stardom they deserve. IPL has changed the cricketing perspective altogether. A board once reluctant to accept T20 format is now banking on this prestigious league.

In the next two months we would see a lot of anxiety and emotions on and off the field. Most importantly we would see some high quality of cricket. Teams like CSK, RCB, RR, MI, etc would once again be in the race to claim the top position. Let's see who nails it this time. 

India takes on South Africa in an ODI and T20 Series - Live on Sony Ten & Sony Liv

India vs South Africa 2018 ODI and T20 Series Preview

Two narrow losses in the test series followed by a consolatory victory in the third test - this means a lot to team India. Before the test series kicked off, this team was considered to be one of the most positive Indian team that would ever visit South Africa for a bilateral series. Irrespective of the 2-1 scoreline in the test series, they proved their mettle. Now its time for them to yet again prove how good they are and provide enough resistance to the resolute South African team. India would first play a six match ODI series followed by a T20 International series. This post will provide you details on the squads, live streaming telecast and schedule.

India vs South Africa Live Streaming 
Sony Ten 1 and 3 (including HD) will provide live telecast of India vs South Africa ODI and T20I matches in India with live Hindi and English commentary. You can watch live cricket streaming of this series on Sony Liv app.

ODI and T20 Schedule

1st Feb - 1st ODI at Durban
4th Feb - 2nd ODI at Centurion
7th Feb - 3rd ODI at Cape Town
10th Feb - 4th ODI at Johannesburg 
13th Feb - 5th ODI at Port Elizabeth
16th Feb - 6th ODI at Centurion
18th Feb - 1st T20 at Johannesburg
21st Feb - 2nd T20 at Centurion
24th Feb - 3rd T20 at Cape Town

Squads

India: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur.

South Africa: Faf du Plessis (captain), Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), JP Duminy, Chris Morris, Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Tabraiz Shamsi, Khayelihle Zondo.

Overview

With about 14 months to go for the ICC 2019 World Cup, all the teams have geared up their preparations. A strong indication from one of the Indian selection committee member that Dhoni will play the next world cup has brought some cheer in the Indian camp. His presence brings a lot of calm in the Indian camp that is well directed by Kohli's aggression. 

Virat Kohli has been on a golden run so far as a captain. We wish he leads India to some remarkable overseas series wins. Actually the way teams prepare for World cups, overseas bilateral series (especially test matches) need equal efforts. This ODI and T20 team for India comes with a lot of experience and positive intent. 

Likes of Virat, Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Rahane, Dhoni, Bhuvaneshwar bring a lot of thought leadership that guides the youngsters pretty well. Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Chahal, Kuldeep are the future of Indian cricket.

On the other hand, South Africa would certainly be in a shock after the third test defeat but they take a lot of pride in beating the top ranked test team. Now they need to safeguard their top position in the ODI rankings. If they manage to win atleast three out of the six matches, India won't be able to achieve the coveted number one spot in ODI rankings. India and South Africa are separated by just one points in the ICC ODI rankings table. 

Overall, this promises to be another tough tussle between one of the two best cricket teams in the world. Enjoy every bit of this cricketing action on Sony Liv and Sony Ten.

India vs South Africa 2018 Test Series - Who is going to win this one?

India vs South Africa 2018 Test Series - Clash of Titans

Who is going to win the India vs South Africa 2018 cricket series? Well, yes South Africa has an upper hand. They have a successful history in their own backyard against the Indian sub-continent teams and of course the home advantage. But Kohli's men would certainly be in no mood to give away things easily. Infact, there is a high probability that we may see some major upsets out there.

India completes a long home season, now ready to face a daunting task down there in South Africa. You won't find a cricket fan who doesn't admire the quality of cricket that South Africa plays. Right from the Hansie Cronje days to AB de Villiers era, South Africa has always been amongst the top three teams, especially in test and ODI cricket. None of the Indian sub-continent teams have managed to win a test series in South Africa. 


Have seen all the Indian tours to South Africa. Even though the earlier touring teams had the likes of Tendulkar, Ganguly, Dravid, Azharuddin, Laxman, Dhoni, etc; somehow this team looks more balance. Indian team always toured with a good batting line up but somehow they failed to put a good show in bowling. This time that's not the case. Likes of Ashwin, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Shami, Ishant, etc would love the conditions out there and extract as much as possible to succeed. Apart from a fair balance, this team is highly fearless and possesses a well controlled aggression. 

This series truly deserves to be called 'Clash of Titans'.

India vs South Africa 2018 Live Streaming

India vs South Africa 2018 Test Series Schedule

1st Test Match starts from 5th January 2018 at Durban
2nd Test Match starts from 13th January 2018 at Centurion
3rd Test Match starts from 24th January 2018 at Johannesburg

Squads

South Africa:- Faf du Plessis (captain), Hashim Amla, Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, Theunis de Bruyn, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, Morne Morkel, AB de Villiers, Dean Elgar, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn

India:- Virat Kohli (captain), Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Parthiv Patel, Jasprit Bumrah

Head to Head Stats

Total Matches played: 33
India won: 10
South Africa won: 13
Draw: 10

Total Matches played in South Africa: 17
India won: 2
South Africa won: 8
Draw: 7

The stats pretty much favour South Africa in their own backyard. India would certainly have to pull up their socks and prove their mettle.

Highlights

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers ability to turn tables on the opposition would be worth a watch. 

Virat Kohli and his team would chase history as they would strive hard to register India's first ever test series win in South Africa.

Ashwin and Maharaj would be the eye catching spinners this series.

Cheteshwar Pujara and Hashim Amla would be great examples of solid defence in this test series.

While South African quickies like Steyn, Rabada and Rabada could prove lethal; even Indian pace battery has a lot of variety that could prove troublesome to the South Africa batsmen.

KL Rahul and Murali Vijay can be hidden gems. They are solid when it comes to test cricket. If they succeed in playing out the initial phase of pace battery, they are well set for a big one.

While South Africa has an upper hand in this series, we certainly know Virat Kohli and his team is not going to make South Africa's job that easy. You never know, this could be a historic tour for team India. Catch all the exciting cricket action live on SonyLiv and Sony Ten HD channels.
