4 Players who should not get selected against South Africa in ODI series
Mayank Agarwal – The way Rohit Sharma has done wonders in Team India and List A cricket, the same expectations came in from Mayank Agarwal. But he is constantly failed on the New Zealand Tour. Mayank, who was in the excellent form, got a chance in the ODI series against New Zealand but was able to score only 36 runs which included scoring 32, 2 and 1 runs. These are the figures of three ODIs. In such a situation, he can most likely be dropped out from the team and KL Rahul should be the preferred as the opener for the series against South Africa. Instead of wasting his batting form at number 5, Rahul should open the three-match ODI series for India.
Kedar Jadhav – Kedar Jadhav has got many chances in Team India. This 34-year-old player had a great performance against the West Indies but failed in New Zealand. In 2 ODIs against New Zealand, Jadhav got a chance but could not show how amazing he is. In such a way, can he also be taken out of the Africa series? If Jadhav is not bowling and failing with the bat in hand, then it is better to choose a proper all-rounder. In the third ODI against New Zealand, Kedar Jadhav was dropped out and replaced by Manish Pandey.

During this time, his run rate was 8.89. This 28-year-old player was later replaced by Navdeep Saini. In this case, Thakur can be excluded from Team India.
