SA vs IND Test Pitch Report

The pitch at the Wanderers Stadium will once again work in favour of the pace bowlers while keeping in mind the history of the venue. Rain is likely to play spoilsport on all of the five days of the second Test match and the overcast conditions will make things difficult for the batters of both the teams. However, the good quality of bounce will favour both the batters and bowlers to some extent. Thus, picking  more of fast bowlers and batters will be a good decision.
