India will take on South Africa in a three-match ODI series, starting on January 19. The first two matches of the series will be played at Boland Park in Paarl. The visitors were humbled by South Africa in the red-ball rubber as they conceded the series 2-1 after winning the opener comprehensively. India hit the nets ahead of the one-dayers, with a new leader at the helm in KL Rahul. The stylish opener who scored a painstaking ton in the first Test was given the charge for the ODIs against South Africa because Rohit Sharma was injured.
