South Africa Team News & Playing 11

AB de Villiers was the standout performer with the bat for South Africa at Cape Town. His counter-attacking knock of 65 and a healthy partnership with skipper Faf du Plessis (62) in the first-innings helped the Proteas attain a vital 77-run lead. Hashim Amla seems to going through a rough patch but he has a great test record at the Centurion. Vernon Philander was the star of the first test with a match-haul of nine wickets and he could trouble the Indians again at Centurion where he has 22 wickets in 5 matches. Morne Morkel and Kagiso Rabada will continue to test the visitors with their pace and bounce.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

  • Faf du Plessis (c), Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, Duanne Olivier/Andile Phehlukwayo, Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander, Dean Elgar, Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj

India Team News & Playing 11

Hardik Pandya's flashy innings of 95-ball 93 was the only bright spot in India's batting at Cape Town. The allrounder was also impressive with the ball and he is turning out to be a real asset for his team. Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara failed to replicate their incredible home test form and India will need these two batsmen to score big at Centurion. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of the bowlers with six wickets in the game and once again it will be up to him to provide the early breakthroughs. However, he will need good support from Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami from the other end.

India Predicted Playing 11

  • Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma/Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan/Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Murali Vijay, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya

­South Africa vs India 2nd Test Prediction

The SuperSport Park isn't known for producing dull stalemates and this is evident from the fact that there have been only three drawn tests at this venue since 1995. So a draw seems to be an unlikely outcome here. India, just as was expected, struggled big time with the bat in each innings of the first test and we don't see that change anytime soon as they will be presented with another lively pitch at Centurion. South Africa have an outstanding record here with just 2 defeats in 22 tests. They are coming high on confidence as they registered a comfortable win over India even after being one bowler short. The hosts simply seem too strong at home and so it makes sense backing them to win this match.

Final Verdict: Back South Africa to beat India in the second test at 1.65 on betfair, 1.61 on Bet365, 1.62 on Unibet, 1.58 on Ladbrokes and 1.57 on Betway.
