The first match of the three-match ODI series between India and South Africa will be played on 11 March at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. The match is touted to be a high scoring affair as far as the firepower of both the teams is concerned.
After a dismal show in New Zealand, the Men in Blue will be anticipating their star-studded batting force to fire off against a formidable South African bowling unit. Ahead of the much-anticipated ODI series, BCCI shared photos of Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan sweating it out in the nets.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings, who are regarded as one of the most successful franchises of Indian Premier League, shared a picture of their vice-captain Suresh Raina posing for a photoshoot.
11th March 2001– it was the very same day when a young Harbhajan Singh decimated Australia by scalping a Test hat-trick and paved the way for a famous victory at Eden Gardens. Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman also hogged the headlines in that Test for their incredible partnership. Wasim Jaffer reminisced the day and lauded Harbhajan along with Laxman and Dravid.
Ravindra Jadeja, who has emerged as a vital cog of Team India’s setup, shared pictures with Bumrah, Pant and Dhawan while gearing up for the South Africa ODI series. India’s premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah also shared a picture while sharpening his bowling skills ahead of the series.
Mohammad Kaif was known for his exemplary fielding skills during his time with the national side. Athleticism and Kaif go hand in hand, which the right-hander duly exhibited by taking a stunner in the Legends match against Sri Lanka. At the age of 39, Kaif took a diving catch and impressed many Indian cricketers including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar. Irfan Pathan also heaped praise on Kaif’s stunning catch on Twitter.
