Key players – 

For India, skipper Virat Kohli will be the key player for the team as he will have the responsibility to bind the middle order and score runs in order to steer the team to get a good total on the board whereas his responsibility changes when asked to chase a target as at that time his focus is on the target and sometimes he even alone lead the team to a win. So the form of Virat Kohli with the bat will be the biggest thing for the team to look out for. 

For South Africa, pacer Kagiso Rabada will be the player to look out for as the form in which young Rabada is, he has raised many eyebrows and has been marked as the player of the long run. He scalped a hat-trick on his ODI debut and from that day, he has been known as the player of the future. If Rabada is able to get few wickets at the start, then it will be difficult for the Indian team to gain success. The success of South Africa depends upon Kagiso Rabada and he will be the key player for his team.
