JP predicts ODI runfest‚ but without injured AB

Rohit Sharma advocates single-format overseas tours

The duo of AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli or Faf Du Plessis and MS Dhoni are going to be in the opposition sides pitting each other's downfall. India being the world's No.1 ranked team, you expect nothing less from them.

Having already clinched the Test series earlier, South Africa will now meet India for the first ODI at the Kingsmead Oval on Thursday.

Ahead of the series opener of the 5 ODIs between India and South Africa, there was a massive setback for the hosts (in turn, a big boost for India).

But De Villiers will miss the first three games because of a finger injury he suffered during the third Test. After the intense three-Test series, the second leg of the tour, expected to be equally gruelling if not more, began on Tuesday morning with Virat Kohli & Co getting down to a full practice session here at the Kingsmead.

The ODI series between India and South Africa will conclude on February 16, and will be followed by a three-match T20 series, beginning on February 18. Nine of the South Africans played in the Tests. "But right now, you know you're going to be competitive, you want to win and I don't think see anything different", he says. "I'm here to make an impact in the series and want to make an impact", Rohit said. We have always played the whole series whenever we've gone overseas. "For our team, it's about understanding what's the make up and how do we best get to a 300-past score". Every batsman who will be taking part in this ODI series will have a huge role to play.

At the same time, the Men in Blue will be intent on winning their first-ever bilateral ODI series on the South African soil. We can not think too far ahead. "Ideally, we'd like to go back, refresh, get some time, think about what we need to do and play another format". "I believe it will be a great way to start the series thinking about the 2019 World Cup", says Rohit Sharma.
