India is scheduled to face South Africa in a first of a three-match ODI series. The IND vs SA 1st ODI 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 IND vs SA toss time, stats and squad details.
Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India have won the toss just once in their last five ODI matches. The ‘Men in Blue’ have won two of those five matches and both of those wins came against Australia in a home series in January. Meanwhile, South Africa have won the toss on three occasions in their last five completed matches. They won four of those matches and recently whitewashed the Australian team at home.
The Dharamshala pitch usually favours the pacers. In all ODIs played at the venue, the average score batting first has been 214. Due to cloudy weather conditions, teams will be looking to bat first upon winning the toss.
The IND vs SA toss will be conducted at 1:00 PM IST. The match will then commence at 1:30 PM IST. The first innings will conclude at 5:00 PM IST and the two teams will break for a 45-minute interval. The players will step back into the field for the run chase at 5:45 PM IST.IND vs SA 1st ODI: Squad updates
