IND vs SA Pune Test: How two sides could line up

Team India would look to take the momentum of the 203-run win in Vizag Test into the 2nd Test starting on Wednesday. Pune has not been the favourable hunting ground, although the odds are stacked in favour of the hosts.

Unchanged XI for India

India look have all bases covered, although they did feel the need for a fifth bowler for a session in the last game. Virat Kohli has suggested that they are likely to go with a winning combination in Pune.

IND Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami

SA to bolster bowling

South Africa have concerns in the bowling department. The visitors can turn to Lungi Ngidi or Anrich Nortje, for their extra pace. The most likely candidate to make way is Dane Piedt.

SA Predicted XI: Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, Theunis de Bruyn, Temba Bavuma, Faf du Plessis (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Senuran Muthusamy, Vernon Philander, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi/Anrich Nortje
