India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to field against South Africa at SuperSport Park in Centurion today. Aiden Markram is leading South Africa to become their second youngest captain. 

Having beaten South Africa by six wickets in the opening game of the six-match ODI series, India are aiming to go 2-0 ahead as they face the Proteas. India had comfortably chased down a 270-run target set by South Africa in the first ODI with skipper Kohli scoring a century to lead the team past the finishing line. 

After drawing first blood at Durban, Virat Kohli's men got a further boost through misfortune to South Africa after skipper Faf du Plessis, who scored 120 at Kingsmead, was ruled out of the rest of the limited-overs series due to injury, leaving a big hole in the batting order.

AB de Villiers was ruled out of the first three ODIs, also due to a finger injury. All this leaves stand-in captain Aiden Markram, who struggled against spin while batting at No. 4 in the first game, with his task cut out.

India, on the other hand, will look to continue from where they left in the opening ODI and pile more pressure on the injury-plagued hosts.
