India will surely be in an advantageous stage following De Villiers' absence. India being the world's No.1 ranked team, you expect nothing less from them.

The first match of the series takes place at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Thursday.

Standard Bank Proteas batsman, AB de Villiers, has been ruled out of the first three Momentum One-Day Internationals (ODI) against India due to a finger injury.

India's bowlers had a terrific run during the Test series that India lost 1-2, and Rohit stressed on the impact they can make in ODIs.

After scoring 211 runs at an average of 35.16 during the recently concluded 3-match Test series, de Villiers picked up a finger injury in the final Test at the Wanderers.
