IND vs SA Dream11: 2ND Test Match Preview, Stats and Teams

Match Preview:

It is the  golden opportunity for Kohli’s men to create history, and to their advantage they will up against the host team on their favourable ground. At Wanderers Indian team has never lost a test match. They have 2 win and 3 draws here. So, South African team has to to stick their chin out to beat this confident Indian side. Virat Kohli’s men take the field as favorites, and in any SENA countries this rarely happens when everyone including all South African legends feels that Indian team are far better side than host.

The only advantage for South African side is that they are still the host side and their players are more used to the condition than the Indian side, and they can turn the tide in their favor any time sooner or later.

Pitch Report:

The Wanderers, Johannesburg

This is the same pitch where in 2018 the test match between Indian and South Africa has been suspended for a while due to deemed condition of the pitch, and thus 3 demerits points were provided and further 2 more demerits points before 2023 means International status will be taken away from this ground.

So, one can expect that poor condition like 2018 will not be presented in front of Indian team but it does not means that run scoring will not be easy on this ground and it was never been on this ground.

South Africa Team Preview

After the humiliating loss in the first match, they are further dented by the news of the Test retirement of their star wicket keeper batsman De Kock. South African captain Dean Elgar has to ponder about their combination as well, whether they want to go with all pace attack or with 4 seam and 1 spin combination. D Oliver is fit and he might be included in the playing11 straightaway either in place of Keshav Maharaj whom South Africa has used occasionally in the first or in place of W Mulder who was unimpressive with both bat and ball.

Probable 11 Of South Africa:

1 Dean Elgar (capt) (LHB)

2 Aiden Markram (RHB + RAO)

3 Keegan Petersen (RHB + LEGBREAK)

4 Rassie van der Dussen (RHB)

5 Temba Bavuma (RHB)
