The Indian cricket team might have lost the Test series against South Africa, but signed off on a high with an impressive victory in the final Test held in Johannesburg.

With the momentum on their side, Virat Kohli and his men will look to get back to winning ways in the ODI series which begins on February 1.

The squad did not throw up many surprises with the usual suspects being named to take on the world no. 1 side.

Here are five Indian cricketers to watch out for in the upcoming ODI series:

#5 Yuzvendra Chahal

Ever since making his debut in 2016, the 27-year-old has proven to be one of India's best bowlers in the limited overs format.

His ability to pick up wickets at regular intervals is what makes him one of the most sought after bowlers right now.

However, Chahal has not been tested in the tough conditions offered by the South African pitches. It will be interesting to see if he has the same impact over there as he has had in the sub-continent conditions.

He has picked up 27 wickets in 17 matches so far at an average of 25.07 and a good economy rate of 4.66.
