The second One-Day International (ODI) between India (IND) and South Africa (SA) in their three-match series is scheduled to take place at St George's Park, Gqeberha on Tuesday, December 19. India won the first match by a margin of eight wickets. South Africa won the toss and chose to bat in the previous game, but they had a difficult start as they were out for just 116 runs. In ODIs against India, this was South Africa's third-lowest total. Only three Proteas batsmen scored in double figures; the highest scorer, Andile Phehlukwayo, scored 33 runs off of 49 deliveries.

Arshdeep Singh turned up a standout bowling effort, taking five wickets for 37 runs in ten overs and picking up his maiden ODI wicket in the process. With four wickets for 27 runs in eight overs, Avesh Khan produced his best ODI bowling performance. Kuldeep Yadav took the last wicket. India suffered an early blow when Ruturaj Gaikwad was out after scoring five runs off of ten deliveries, leaving them down by a wicket with only 23 runs scored. But after establishing an 88-run partnership for the second wicket, Sai Sudarshan and Shreyas Iyer stabilised the ship. Both batsmen achieved half-centuries; Iyer left the game in the sixteenth over, having scored 52 runs off 45 deliveries. In his debut game, Sudarshan amassed 55 runs off of 43 deliveries without losing. Arshdeep Singh was justifiably named Player of the Match for his outstanding bowling effort.
