Team India under the leadership of captain Virat Kohli and coach Rahul Dravid is on the verge of creating history by winning first ever test series at South African soil. Currently India is 1-0 up in this three match test series and if the visitors managed to win the Wanderers test then it will be game over for Proteas and Virat Kohli & co. will get their name written in the history books. In the first test match of this series India defeated South Africa by a massive margin of 113 runs so momentum is definitely on team India’s side but still visitors need to bring their A game for the next 5 days.
As far as team changes are concerned we are expecting only one change in the team India’s playing xi and that is Shreyas Iyer in place of Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara failed badly in both the innings in the first test as he managed to only score 16 runs in both the innings which includes a 1st ball golden duck in the first innings of the Centurion test.
Talking about South African playing xi, well we are not expecting any changes in the Proteas combination in the 2nd test against India. Bench of South Africa is looking quite inexperienced and Proteas might take a gamble by going in with the same xi at the Wanderers.

South Africa Probable Playing XI – Dean Elgar(c), Aiden Markram, Keegan Petersen, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock(w), Wiaan Mulder, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi
