IND vs SA

After the T20 series victory against South Africa by 2-1, Team India is all set to cross swords with South Africa in the three match ODI series. But seems like cricket fans will have to witness the magic as the unexpected rain in Lucknow has delayed the match.

The first ODI match will be played in Lucknow’s Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, commonly known as Ekana Cricket Stadium, on Thursday. However, the match was slated to begin at 12:00 pm but the latest update suggests, that after a short inspection, toss will be held at 1:30 pm and match will begin at 2:00 pm.

Shreyas Iyer has been named the vice captain of India, while Shikhar Dhawan will be leading Men In Blue for the ODI series against Proteas as the senior team has left for Australia. After defeating Australia and South Africa in T20 series but 2-1, senior Team India along with skipper Rohit Sharma and former captain Virat Kohli has left for Australia where the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 will be played.

Despite India missing their star and senior players, the team will be hoping to deliver in the ODI series against South Africa. Shikhar Dhawan’s side has the players and the class to register another series win in the ODI format. However, it is not going to be a cakewalk as India lost the last T20 match with the absence of just KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. And now the almost new team will face a strong South African side.

First ODI: October 6 at Lucknow

Second ODI: October 9 at Ranchi

This comes after a video featuring Rohit Sharma and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) assistant coach Abhishek Nayar went viral on social media platforms where Sharma is seen contemplating his future with the Mumbai Indians team.

The post has gone viral on X with 2.2 million views, 2700 comments, 13000 retweets and 73000 likes which are only increasing. Large number of Rohit Sharma fans and cricket enthusiasts commented on the social media post. One X user Archer said that he was surprised on the post by Rohit Sharma and did not see it coming. He added that it was great of Rohit Sharma for calling this out.

One X user Prateek wrote finally captain had to speak against TRP mafia star sports.

Another cricket enthusiast did not agree with Rohit Sharma and wrote that he hardly gave any content with his batting as a result they had to do this.
