India are scheduled to face South Africa in the first of the three-match ODI series. The IND vs SA match will be played at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala on March 12. The IND vs SA live match will commence at 1:30 PM IST. Here, we take a look at the squad updates of IND vs SA 1st ODI and the IND vs SA live streaming details.
When it comes to the question of “Who is playing in IND vs SA 1st ODI?", captain Virat Kohli is likely to make a number of changes in the line-up that was fielded in New Zealand. With the return of regular limited-overs opener Shikhar Dhawan, he is likely to open the innings with Prithvi Shaw. Comeback men Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are also expected to make the cut into the playing XI.

South Africa recently enjoyed a great outing in a home ODI series against Australia. Newcomer Janneman Malan scored 152 runs in three matches and impressed in his debut series, making him a likely candidate to open against India as well. With the absence of ace pacer Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi is expected to lead the four-pronged South African pace attack.
