India are going to be led by Virat Kohli in this cricket series. India continued their fine form in the test matches as they won the first test match against South Africa. With that win, India have accumulated 160 points out of three-cricket games they have played so far.
As predicted by our prediction guru before the previous game of cricket, India went with two spinners in Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin as spinners and Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami as fast bowlers.
India’s move to go with Rohit Sharma as opener brought immediate results as he smashed two hundreds in the same cricket game. Our prediction is that India will go in with the same playing eleven yet again.
Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:
- Rohit Sharma
- Mayank Agarwal
- Cheteshwar Pujara
- Virat Kohli
- Ajinkya Rahane
- W Saha
- Hanuma Vihari
- Ravichandran Ashwin
- Ravindra Jadeja
- Ishant Sharma
- Mohammad Shami
South Africa are going to be led by Faf du Plessis in this cricket series. The start was not particularly auspicious for the touring side as they lost the first cricket test match by a big margin of 203 runs.
South Africa did not have a completely poor test at Vizag. In fact, they competed very well in the first innings when they put on 431 on batting first in reply to India’s 502. It was only in the second innings that they completely unravelled and ended up losing the game of cricket by a huge margin.
South Africa chose to go with three spinners in the previous test match. Our prediction is they are going to go with either Lungi Ngidi or Anrich Nortje as the third fast bowler in this game.
Here is our prediction of South Africa’s playing XI:
- Quinton de Kock
- Dean Elgar
- Faf du Plessis
- Aiden Markram
- Temba Bavuma
- Theunis de Bruyn
- Kagiso Rabada
- Vernon Philander
- Keshav Maharaj
- Lungi Ngidi
- Henrich Klassen
Expert Prediction: Ind vs SA
India will be looking to win yet another test series at home when they will take on South Africa in the second test match. They have already won the first test match and would like to get their record straight in Pune.
It was in Pune a couple of years ago against Australia where India lost their last cricket test match at home. Since then, their record has been formidable and their strength at home is enviable. The pitch is once again going to be centre of attention as it got the poor rating from ICC the last time India played here.
South Africa would like to extend their good showing in the first innings of the Vizag test. It seemed like their batsmen, led by Dean Elgar, had a plan against India’s bowlers. They attacked Indian spinners and at one stage, it seemed like they had a wood over them. However, Indian spinners proved their mettle once again in-home conditions and came back strongly.
India were also buoyed by the quality fast bowling from Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami. Shami, in particular, was extremely impressive against South Africa in the second innings. He picked up a five-for and completely destroyed the opposition.
Our expert prediction is of yet another Indian win in this cricket game. It is hard to argue against a side that has hardly lost anything in home conditions.
Toss prediction? -The team winning the toss will undoubtedly bat first. The pitch is likely to spin a lot in Pune hence, the first innings runs are of premium.
