IND vs SA PAYTM First Captains Prediction |India vs South Africa Test Match| FREE ENTRY

IND vs SA PayTM First Captains Team Prediction:

South Africa found themselves on familiar ground in the first test as the fourth innings collapse made India comfortable winners against South Africa.

Their batting against the spinning ball and on up and down conditions has been a worry for them for a very long time and apart from Dean Elgar and Quinton De Kock no batsman looked like getting stuck into the bowling barring a bit of resistance which was shown by the all-rounder Muthuswami.

India look to have all bases covered at home with their new opening batsman Rohit Sharma once again looking to show his immense class against a listless SA attack

The match though is under the cloud of rain as the weather forecast has not been too positive.

  • Rohit is expected to open again with Mayank Agarwal after they forged a record breaking partnership in the previous game.

South Africa Team News:

  • South African spinners were largely ineffective and there may be a case to play Lungi Ngidi over Dane Piedt.
