IND vs SA, 1st ODI: A young Indian team under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan is bracing itself to take on Temba Bavuma and his men. The ODI team devoid of superstars such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, and others is an excellent opportunity for youngsters to step up and announce themselves at the highest level of the game. With the 2023 World Cup in sight, the Indian team management has persisted with Shikhar Dhawan as the captain and VVS Laxman as the head coach.

Ahead of the ODI series, the young Indian team took to the nets to refine their game and fine-tune their plans.
