4th ODI: India vs SA 2015 – Players to watch out for
All eyes would be on Suresh Raina who has scored just three runs in 3 ODIs.
New Delhi: It's a do-or-die match for Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his troops as India take on South Africa in the 4th match of the ongoing ODI series at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, Chennai.
India are trailing 1-2 in the five-match series and as they look to bounce back.
Here are players to watch out for from both teams:
Suresh Raina: The left-hander has had a pathetic series as per his standards where he has scored just three runs from as many matches. Raina, who is a run-machine in each season of the Indian Premier League, needs to crank his performances up by several notches and help his team bounce back with a formidable knock.
Hashim Amla: Irrespective of the format, Amla has been the major force for South Africa at the top of the order in the past. However, Indian bowlers have so far managed to keep his willow quiet in the ongoing ODI series where he has scored 59 runs from three innings. A big knock is due from him and South Africa would be banking upon their veteran batsman to help them register a series win.
JP Duminy's injury will be a major setback for the visitors as the all-rounder had chipped in with pivotal performances right throughout the series. Even Morne Morkel, who was the Man of the Match in the third ODI, has suffered an injury and his participation for the fourth ODI is highly unlikely.
India are yet to score a big total in the series and once again, the toss will be crucial factor for both teams.
