Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram, August 31 at 09:30 AM IST
A clinical India A just steamrolled the South African A side in the first Unofficial ODI by 69 runs to go 1-0 up in the 5 match series. It is now time for the second one-dayer which will be played at this very venue in Thiruvananthapuram.
Due to wet outfield, the start of the match was delayed and the game was further reduced to 47-overs per side. Batting first, the hosts posted an impeccable 327 for the loss of 6 wickets courtesy some fine batting effort from the two all-rounders Shivam Dube and Axar Patel scoring unbeaten 79 and 60 respectively.
In reply, opener Reeza Hendricks was the lone warrior for South Africa A as he hung at one end scoring 110 from 108 deliveries but his valiant effort couldn’t help the visitors escape defeat.

Fantasy picks from India A-
Skipper Manish Pandey is coming with a rich vein of form. He played in the Karnataka Premier League where he got three unbeaten scores of 102, 58 and 53.
Playing for India A in the Test series against Windies A, Shubman Gill scored a brilliant unbeaten 204 in the second unofficial Test. However, since then his form dipped slightly as he got scores of 9, 6 and 46 in the next three innings. Irrespective of the three not so worthy innings, he still remains a perpetual aspect in this batting line-up.
Ruturaj Gaikwad is one of the stalwarts of Indian domestic circuit when it comes to batting. He averages 55.81 in List-A career and has scored 2065 runs from 39 innings.
Yuzvendra Chahal is fresh of a 5-wicket haul from the last game. Once again he will be leading this bowling attack.
Fantasy picks from South Africa A-
Reeza Hendricks was the lone warrior in the first One-Dayer as he stood like a wall and scored a brilliant 110. In his last 6 List A innings, he has scored 257 runs.
Skipper Temba Bavuma remains one of the biggest threat in the middle order. From 73 List A innings, he has scored 2022 runs at an average of 31.10.
In his last 5 List A games, Anrich Nortje has managed 9 wickets. Talking about his List A career, from 34 matches he has scalped 53 wickets.
