Faf du Plessis: The veteran middle order batsman missed out on a well deserved double century in the 1st test by one run. He scored 199 runs in 276 balls. He was in sublime touch and is sure to carry that form in the 2nd game as well.

Dean Elgar: The southpaw gave an excellent start to the South African innings and missed out on his century by just 5 runs. He would like to start the year 2021 with a bang. He can be a real value added pick.

Quinton de Kock: The captain didn’t make a mark in the previous game but we all know that he is in terrific form at the moment. He didn’t get 2nd opportunity in the 1st game and he will be hungry to score big in this test.

Anrich Nortje: The wicket will be a paradise for fast bowlers and with the pace that Anrich Nortje possess, he can be a handful on this wicket. He can also be a good vice-captain option.

Other picks: Kusal Perera, Dasun Shanaka, Wiaan Mulder and Dushmantha Chameera can all be very good picks.

Today SA vs SL match score: Team batting first will look to post around 400.
