    Pitch ReportBowling

Newlands, Pitch Report

The pitch at the Newlands in Cape Town is likely to be a bowling track. The bowlers especially the seamers will be licking their lips to take the field on January 23, Sunday. The seamers will be getting help from the surface throughout the match.

The deck will be offering extra bounce and pace to the seamers. The spinners can also play a role during the middle-orders. Talking about the batters, they will have to be extra careful in their approach. 

Batters should give time to themselves to get settled in the middle before going for big shots. A low-scoring encounter is most probably awaiting the cricket fans on Sunday. 

Weather Forecast

The forecast for Sunday, January 23 at Newlands suggests a sunny atmosphere. The weather won’t be causing any trouble or delay in the game as the precipitation chances are zero. The players will have to deal with a hot and humid atmosphere as the temperature is likely to be around 29 degrees celsius. The humidity will be around 68 percent with a wind speed of 27 km/h.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

South Africa and India will square off against each other in the last One Day International of the three-match series on Sunday. Both the teams will come into the game with different moods. South Africa have already clinched the series by 2-0 and they will now aim for a clean sweep.

South Africa won the first ODI by 31 runs as they convincingly defended 296 runs in 50 overs. Following the emphatic win, the host delivered another splendid performance in the second One Day International.

The game saw India winning the toss and opting to bat first. Though the visitors faced some troubles early in the match, Rishabh Pant played a class knock to lift the team. The wicketkeeper smacked 85 runs off 71 deliveries including ten boundaries and two maximum.

Shardul Thakur was another batter who made a mark with the willow as he scored 40 runs to take India to a total of 287 runs.

However, a score of 288 wasn’t enough for the bowlers to defend. The Indian bowlers conceded a lot of runs as Proteas completed the score within 48.1 overs ton win by seven wickets.

Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan were the standout performers for their team as they hammered 78 and 91 runs respectively. Heading into the Sunday game, South Africa will hope to replicate their performance to increase their margin of winning.

India, on the other hand, will have the last chance to save themselves from an embarrassing whitewash. The bowlers need to show more conviction and discipline on the field. Also, it will be a Test for KL Rahul as well as India has lost all three games under his leadership so far.

Looking at the squad and individual forms, we predict a victory for South Africa in the final One Day International. India are likely to travel back to India with empty hands. 

Top Indian batsman

Shikhar Dhawan is expected to lead the attack for India with the willow in the third One Day International. Dhawan was the highest run-getter for India in the first ODI as he hammered 79 runs off 84 deliveries. 

The opening batter failed to replicate his performance in the second match as he could add only 29 runs before losing his wicket to Aiden Markram. The online odds suggest that Dhawan will be again the main batter for India in the third ODI.

South Africa

  • South Africa dominated the first One Day International to secure a victory by 31 runs.
  • It was a superlative batting performance by the hosts as Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen slammed a century each.
  • With the ball, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Andile Phehlukwayo were the stars.

    Pitch ReportBatting

Boland Park, Pitch Report

The pitch at the Boland Park in Paarl isn’t likely to change much from the first One Day International. Batters will only be delighted to take the field. The ball will come nicely on the bat and the partnerships can be formed in the middle to entertain the viewers with high-scoring thrillers.

The surface is unlikely to have much to offer for the bowlers. They will have to consistently hit the deck to challenge the batters. In the first ODI, the pitch looked dry in the beginning, however, it didn’t provide any assistance to the spinners. The skipper winning the toss will be looking to bat first as seen in the first match. 

Weather Forecast

The forecast for Friday, January 21 at Boland Park suggests a sunny atmosphere. The weather won’t be causing any trouble or delay in the game as the precipitation chances are zero. The players will have to deal with a hot and dry atmosphere as the temperature is likely to be around 39 degrees celsius. The humidity will be around 22 percent with a wind speed of 18 km/h.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

South Africa will head into the second One Day International against India as favorites. The host delivered a superlative performance both with the bat and ball in the first ODI to take a lead by 1-0. 

Batting first in the match, Proteas slammed 296 runs in their allotted 50 overs. All the credit for the same goes to batting exploits by Temba Bavuma and Rassir van der Dussen. The skipper added 110 runs to the scoreboard while Dussen hammered 129 runs. 

Chasing the total, India was in a good position with Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli forming a good partnership. However, a collapse of the middle-order paved way for the team’s defeat. Shardul Thakur showed his brilliance towards the end by slamming 50 runs but it wasn’t enough as India fell short of 31 runs.

The comprehensive victory in the first ODI will give a lot of confidence and momentum to South Africa to do well in the second match as well. The team is likely to back their players and not hamper their winning combination. 

India, on the other hand, lacked intent and courage in the first ODI. The team looked off-color and looked lethargic on the field. The Men in Blue need to do regroup and produce a terrific performance on Friday to level the series.

Just like South Africa, the visitors are also likely to play with the same combination. They can only look towards adding more batting strength by including Suryakumar Yadav in place of Venkatesh Iyer. 

We predict a comeback for India in the second One Day International. India’s victory will make the series more interesting and exciting. 

Top Indian batsman

There are decent chances of former Indian skipper Virat Kohli emerging as the top-scorer for India in the second One Day International against South Africa. Kohli looked in fine form in the first match as he added 51 runs to the scoreboard when India was chasing 297 runs.

Also, the batting maestro has stunning records while batting on the South African pitches. For India to do well and stay relevant in the series, it is important for Virat to hit some runs.

Following the conclusion of the three-match Test series between India and South Africa, the focus shifts to One Day Internationals. The two teams will have a go against each other in three One Day Internationals from January 19 to January 23.

South Africa, on the other hand, were absolutely lethal in the Test series. The host will hope to continue the same confidence and momentum in the ODIs too.

  • South Africa will start the ODI series as favorites as they have a comparatively settled team.
  • South Africa have won only three of their last eight One Day Internationals.
  • The team welcomes back Temba Bavuma as the skipper following his thumb injury.
  • The pace sensation Kagiso Rabada has been rested for all three matches against India.

The Boland Park in Paarl will be offering a batting-friendly track to India and South Africa as they will be paying the first One Day International of the three-match on Wednesday. Batters will be licking their lips to take the field as the ball will come nicely on the bat.

The willow wielders will also get good value for their shots due to shorter boundaries and quick outfields. Due to so much assistance to the batters, the fans can expect a high-scoring match on Wednesday.

The bowlers especially the seamers won’t be receiving much help from the surface. The only way for the bowlers to rule the game is by minimizing their mistakes and being consistent with the line and length. Also, the seamers who will target the stumps repeatedly can unsettle the batters.

Weather Forecast

The forecast for Wednesday, January 19 at Boland Park suggests a sunny atmosphere. The weather won’t be causing any trouble or delay in the game as the precipitation chances are zero. The players will have to deal with a hot atmosphere as the temperature is likely to be around 33 degrees celsius. The humidity will be around 30 percent with a wind speed of 19 km/h.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

The three-match One Day series between India and South Africa starts from January 19, Wednesday at the Boland Park in Paarl. The One Day Internationals won’t be adding much value for both sides as they don’t form a part of the World Cup Super League.

The two teams delivered high-voltage performances in the Test format and something similar is expected in ODIs too. South Africa will have an edge on Wednesday as they are coming after a scintillating performance in the purest format of the game. 

Also, the Proteas will be well versed with the playing conditions as they are playing at home. However, the team hasn’t performed well in the ODIs in the past. They have won just three of their last eight One Day games. 

Their last series against the Netherlands was canceled following the first match due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Also, the team will be missing the services of their ace seamers Kagiso Rabada as he has been rested for the series. In the absence of Rabada, Marco Jansen and Lungi Ngidi are expected to lead the attack.

India, on the other hand, will be playing with a relatively younger side. The team has included new players like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Venkatesh Iyer in the team as three senior players namely Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, and Rohit Sharma are injured.

Also, KL Rahul will be leading the team for the first time as Rohit hasn’t traveled to South Africa. What makes the series more interesting for India is the fact that they will be moving ahead of the era of Virat Kohli, the captain.

All the eyes will be on the former Indian skipper as he will be taking the field for the first time in the white-ball match following his resignation as the captain. India played two ODI series last year, against England and Sri Lanka, and ended up winning both by 2-1. 

South Africa have more chances of winning the ODI series. We predict the host to win the Wednesday game and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. 

India’s Total in the First 10 Overs

India will be trying a new opening pair in the One Day Internationals against South Africa. Stand-in captain KL Rahul will be opening the batting innings for the Men in Blue alongside the veteran Shikhar Dhawan. The change is being made as Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the series due to injuries.

Both Rahul and Dhawan have enough experience under their belt as opening batters. Also, at number three walks Virat Kohli. With three solid and experienced batters at the top of the line-up, the fans can expect a good start for the visitors. The online odds suggest that the visiting nation will be able to collect over 55 runs in their first ten overs.

Prediction & Betting Pick

SA vs IND Preview

Day four is expected to last day of the third Test between India and South Africa. The host are leading the match by a huge margin owing to a spectacular performance by the bowlers on day three. The team needs to score just 111 runs with eight wickets in hand to continue their brilliant record in the home Test series against India.

Though the visitors are lagging behind, one can never rule India out of the game. The team has the best pace attack in the world and can definitely give Proteas a run for their money in the fourth innings. 

India should aim at picking some early wickets in the first session of day four to put South Africa in trouble. This potentially means that Virat Kohli’s side still has the chance of creating history by winning their first Test series on the Proteas soil. 

South Africa

  • South African bowlers were brilliant in their conduct on the field on day three. 
  • Marco Jansen was again the highest wicket-taker with four wickets to his name.
  • Jansen is followed by Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada as they picked three wickets each.
  • Batting in their second batting innings, the host collected some quick runs as they scored 101 runs in 29.4 overs.
  • Keegan Petersen will resume the day overnight with his overnight score of 48 runs off 61 balls.

Bowlers especially the seamers will be once again looking to change the direction of the match as Newlands in Cape Town is hailed as a bowling track. The surface has a lot to offer to the pacers. It provides extra pace and bounce that can help the pacers cause a lot of destruction.

Meanwhile, Newlands is also famous for having some purchase for the spinners. Unlike other South African grounds, Newlands will assist the spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Keshav Maharaj. 

Coming to batting, the batters will have to put in some extra effort to make a difference in the match. The deck boasts of having a fast outfield which means that the batters will get good value for their shot. Also, the willow wielders can stitch partnerships in the middle if they give some time to themselves to get settled in the middle.

Weather Forecast

India and South Africa are likely to encounter a sunny atmosphere as they will lock horns with each other on day four of the final Test of the three-match series at the Newlands in Capetown. Rain will not be playing a spoilsport on day four as the precipitation chances are zero percent.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

Day four of the third Test match between South Africa and India is expected to be a tight and tense affair. All three results are possible in the Test match and India and South Africa are expected to put up a terrific performance to steal the show.

There was a lot of intense drama on the field on day three. Resuming at an overnight score of 57 for two with Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli, India failed to start on a good note. Pujara walked back to the pavilion early in the morning after scoring just nine runs.

It was followed by another quick wicket as Ajinkya Rahane could score only one run after facing nine balls. It was followed by skipper Virat Kohli and the young wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant showing their resilience and valiance. 

While Rishabh played his natural game, Kohli decided to do defense and let Pant lead the innings. Though the skipper could score only 29 runs, he was there in the middle facing 143 balls.

The dismissal of Kohli caused a complete collapse of the Indian batting line-up. Rishabh was the lone warrior for the visitors as he remained undefeated till the end of a century to take India’s total to 198 runs. 

Pant is now the only Asian wicketkeeper-batter to hit a century in Australia, South Africa, and England. For South Africa, Marco Jansen picked up four wickets while bowling at an economy rate of 1.8.

Apart from Jansen, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi returned with three wickets each. Owing to a poor performance by India, South Africa were given a low target of 212 for the fourth and the final innings.

Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram looked good in the middle but Mohammed Shami gave the first breakthrough by sending Markram back when he was playing at 16. What followed after that was a solid partnership by skipper Elgar and Keegan Petersen. 

Jasprit Bumrah was the one who helped India make a comeback by sending Elgar back to the pavilion after he scored 30 runs. Proteas will now start their innings at a score of 101-2 with Petersen playing at 48.

South Africa needs to score 111 runs in the final innings and they have as many as eight wickets in hand. India, on the other hand, need to pick up eight wickets to create history in SA. We predict Indian bowlers to work their charm on day four and help India win the Test match. 

Keegan Petersen’s Total Runs in 2nd Innings

South Africa started the chase on a fine note as the opening duo of Aiden Markram and Dean Elgar looked well settled in the middle. Both the players played with caution. However, Markram’s lean patch with the willow continued as he ended up giving his wicket to Mohammed Shami after scoring 16 runs.

India were expected to gain some momentum following the first wicket but Elgar and number three batter Keegan Petersen had some other plans. The duo collected some quick runs as they stitched a crucial partnership of 78 runs. 

It was again Jasprit Bumrah who gave a much-needed breakthrough to India by putting an end to Elgar’s stay in the middle. South Africa will now resume at an overnight score of 101-2 with Petersen playing at 48.

Though Africa are ahead in the game, Petersen needs to stay in the middle and not lose his wicket. It won’t be wrong to say that the batter is a key to Proteas’ victory in the final Test. While the home side will have high hopes from the 28-year-old, the online odds suggest against it. 

According to the experts, the chances of Keegan losing his wicket under 65 runs are more.

Newlands, Pitch Report

Bowlers especially the seamers will be once again looking to change the direction of the match as Newlands in Cape Town is hailed as a bowling track. The surface has a lot to offer to the pacers. It provides extra pace and bounce that can help the pacers cause a lot of destruction.

Meanwhile, Newlands is also famous for having some purchase for the spinners. Unlike other South African grounds, Newlands will assist the spinners like Ravichandran Ashwin and Keshav Maharaj. 

Coming to batting, the batters will have to put in some extra effort to make a difference in the match. The deck boasts of having a fast outfield which means that the batters will get good value for their shot. Also, the willow wielders can stitch partnerships in the middle if they give some time to themselves to get settled in the middle.

Weather Forecast

India and South Africa are likely to encounter scattered thunderstorms as they will lock horns with each other on day three of the final Test of the three-match series at the Newlands in Capetown. Rain can play a spoilsport on day three as the precipitation chances are 50 percent.

Further, the temperature will hover in the range from 21 degrees celsius to 29 degrees celsius. The humidity percentage is extremely high for day one i.e 73 percent while the wind speed will be around 05 km/h.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

It will be a tough day for the Indian batters as the team will go up against South Africa on day three of the last Test match. It has been a bowling masterclass from seamers of both India and South Africa that has made the third Test match more interesting and entertaining. 

Just like day one, as many as 11 wickets fell on day two as well. The bowlers have spitted fire with the ball in the first two days at the Newlands in Capetown. The batters are finding it hard to answer the tough questions posed by the ball on a tricky surface. 

Resuming at an overnight score of 17 for one, South Africa couldn’t do much justice with the bat. The team lost wickets time and again as Indian bowlers made the most out of the favorable pitch conditions. 

Jasprit Bumrah was absolutely lethal with the ball as he picked five wickets while bowling at an economy rate of 1.8. He was aptly supported by the spin duo of Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami as they picked two wickets each.

While the whole South African team crumbled like a pack of cards, there was one man, Keegan Petersen who displayed the nerves of steel. The world witnessed a batting masterclass by Virat Kohli on day one while the second day saw a class knock by the young Petersen.

Just like Virat, Petersen was the lone warrior for his team as he collected 71 runs after facing 166 deliveries on the 22-year pitch. However, the efforts by the youngster weren’t enough as South Africa were folded at 210 runs.

India started their second batting innings towards the end of day two. Despite having an upper hand in the Test with a lead of 13 runs, India’s opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal looked under pressure. 

Both the players couldn’t survive the lethal bowling by Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen and ended up losing their wickets cheaply after scoring ten and seven runs respectively. Rabada and Jansen shined with the ball after taking out an opener apiece.

The host would have liked picking one more Indian towards the end of day three. However, Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara managed to hand till the close of play. The experienced duo will resume with an overnight score of 57 for two and will have the responsibility to survive the lethal bowling attack. They are probably the last hope for India to post a good target for South Africa in the fourth innings. 

Looking at the performances and the game so far, we predict India to have an upper hand on day three. India are more likely to win the Test series to create history on the Proteas soil. 

Virat Kohli’s Total Runs in 2nd Innings

Just like India’s first batting innings, in the second innings too the responsibility falls on skipper Virat Kohli and veteran Cheteshwar Pujara to take the team through. India are in serious trouble as they lost both openers namely KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal early in the second batting innings. 

The visitors will resume the match with an overnight score of 57-2 with Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara in the middle. The two will have to stitch a crucial partnership on day three to keep India in the race of winning their first Test series on South African soil.

The online odds suggest that skipper Virat will once again lead from the front by slamming a much-needed century. Notably, Kohli hammered 79 runs during India’s first batting innings to take the team to a score of 223.

It was an eventful and fast-moving day as South Africa faced India on day one of the last Test of the three-match series. Though India had their moments of glory, the first day belonged to South Africa.

The Proteas bowlers were absolutely lethal as they gave nightmares to the Indian batting line-up. Indian skipper Virat Kohli was the only positive for the visitors as he flaunted his class and determination with the willow. 

The Indian skipper played a knock of 79 runs to save India from an embarrassing first innings total. The second day of the high-octane Test match will see South Africa resuming with an overnight score of 17 for one. 

South Africa

  • South Africa lost their first wicket in the form of Dean Elgar on day one.
  • The team will resume with an overnight score of 17/1 with Aiden Markram and Keshav Maharaj in the middle.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

Day one of the third Test match between India and South Africa saw the momentum shifting from one to the other throughout the day. Both the teams put up their best efforts to gain an upper hand. Despite the efforts by Indian batters, the day belonged to South Africa as the seamers ruled the show.

India has one of the worst efforts after opting to bat first at Newlands in Capetown. The opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal failed to do something substantial and India found themselves reeling at 33 for two within 13 overs.

What followed after that was a true Test partnership. Cheteshwar Pujara and skipper Virat Kohli joined hands to entertain the viewers with a classic Test knock. Pujara and Kohli batted with perseverance and resilience as they stitched a crucial partnership of 62 runs. 

Pujara showed a glimpse of brilliance by scoring 43 runs but he was dismissed in the 38th over by Marco Jansen. Meanwhile, it was the skipper Kohli who stole all the thunder. While the fans were waiting for the 71st century by King Kohli, he came up with something more special.

Kohli showed his discipline, grit, and determination as he slammed 79 runs after facing 201 balls in the middle. Though the Delhi-born didn’t score a century, the knock at Cape Town can be rated as one of the best knocks of his cricket career. 

The skipper was a lone warrior for India as he helped his team score 223 runs. Virat was cleaned up by Kagiso Rabada in the 73rd over. The credit for the low score by India completely goes to South African seamers.

Rabada and Marco Jansen made the most out of the favorable conditions as they picked four and three wickets respectively. However, the Proteas failed to make use of the momentum gained by the bowlers.

Starting their first batting innings last in the third session, the host lost their first wicket in the fifth over only. The seamer Jaspit Bumrah gave the first hiccup to the opposition by sending their skipper Dean Elgar back to the pavilion. 

Resuming at an overnight score of 17 for one, South Africa will hope to put up a massive score to take up a decent lead. India, on the other hand, will fancy picking up some quick wickets to gain momentum. 

We predict India to rule the match on day two of the third Test match and inch closer to victory. The seamers including Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, and Shardul Thakur can stun the South African batters. 

South Africa’s Total in the 1st Innings

Following the score of 223 runs, South Africa made a dismal start to their first batting innings. The host lost their opening batter and skipper Dean Elgar in the 5th over only when he was playing at three runs. 

This is a big hiccup for the hist considering that Elgar has been their best batter in the three-match Test series so far. The team will now resume at an overnight score of 17 for one on day two. Repsonibuty now falls on Aiden Markram and Keshav Maharaj to build their innings and throw their wicket carelessly. 

The online odds suggest that Indian bowlers will work their charm on day two and they will be able to bowl out the Proteas under 212 runs.

South Africa and India are all set to clash against each other for the final time in the Test series. The last Test of the three-match series will be played from January 11 to January 15 at the Newlands in Capetown.

It is a do-or-die match for both sides as the series is leveled at 1-1. India won the first Test by a good margin of 113 runs. South Africa, on the other hand, made a solid comeback in the second game as they scored a victory by seven wickets. 

India will look forward to creating history in the final Test match under the leadership of Virat Kohli. The Men in Blue haven’t won a Test series on the Proteas soil yet. South Africa, on the other hand, will be desperate to continue their exemplary record in the home series in the purest format of the game against the Indian nation. 

South Africa

  • South Africa were simply phenomenal in the last Test match as they secured a victory by seven wickets.
  • Skipper Dean Elgar took the man of the match award home for his splendid knock of not out 96 runs in the final innings. 
  • Marco Jansen was the wrecker-in-chief with the ball as he picked four and three wickets respectively in the first and third innings.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

The final Test of the three-match series between India and South Africa is finally here. After Centurion and Johannesburg, the cricket action now moves to the Newlands in Cape Town. The high-octane clash will be played from January 11 to January 15. 

Both India and South Africa have won one game each in the three-match series so far and the team winning the final Test will take the trophy home. India and South Africa are likely to entertain the viewers with a fierce cricketing battler as both sides have equal chances of capturing Cape Town.

India were brilliant in the first Test as they won the game by 113 runs. KL Rahul was exceptional with the willow in the first innings while the seamers were good throughout the match. Despite having momentum on their side, the visitor failed to make a mark in the second Test.

India weren’t good enough in the last game as they had to endure a loss. Though the outing didn’t go as per the plan, the team has a lot of positives to take from the game. The middle-order batters Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane showed some class with the willow as they scored a half-century each in the second batting innings.

The seam all-rounder Shardul Thakur was phenomenal with the ball as he created history by picking as many as seven wickets during the first bowling innings. India will hope to capitalize on the positives and make a solid comeback in the third Test. 

The team will also be strengthened with the comeback of regular skipper Virat Kohli. He had to give the second Test a miss due to back spasms. Also, as a skipper, Kohli is yet to win a Test series in South Africa and will hope to achieve this feat on this tour. 

Talking about South Africa, they will be laced with confidence after a scintillating performance in the second Test match. Africa delivered an all-round performance as they excelled in all the facets of the game be it batting, bowling or fielding. Dean Elgar played a major role in leveling the series as he hammered not out 96 runs to help his team chase a total of 240 runs.

Playing on Tuesday, the host will hope to play with the same spirit and avoid a loss in the series. After a stunning victory, the host is unlikely to make any changes in their playing XI. 

Though both the teams are equally strong, we predict India to win the third Test. The Asian subcontinent will be looking forward to establishing their domination on the Proteas land after conquering Australia and England. 

India’s Total Runs in the 1st Over

The online odds suggest that India will be able to start their batting innings on a good note. The opening pair of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal will look towards getting accustomed to the playing conditions and get settled in the middle.

The visitors are expected to play with caution to set the stage for a big score. The chances of India scoring fewer runs in the first few overs are high.

The Wanderers Stadium, Pitch Report

The Wanderers Stadium is known to offer a bowlers pitch. The uneven bounce, seam, and pace are expected to help the pacers rule the second Test match. The batters need to be on their toes while batting on the surface. 

The stroke makers should be cautious in their approach and need to give some time to themselves to settle in the middle. The new ball can pose an extra threat for the batters in Johannesburg. 

So far in the game, bowlers from both sides have ruled the match. Both Indian and South African seamers have exploited the conditions to wreak havoc in the game. A similar performance is expected from the pacers on day four as well. 

Weather Forecast

Weather can pose a threat as India will take on South Africa on day four of the second Test match at the Wanderers Stadium. Thunderstorms are expected on day four of the Test match with precipitation chances as high as 80 percent. 

The temperature will be around 23 degrees celsius with humidity and wind speed around 65 percent and 14 km/h. If not a complete washout on day one, the rain can cause a halt in the game for brief periods time and again. 

Despite the high chances of rainfall, the game wasn’t interrupted on day one, day two, and day three. The fans and players from both sides will be hoping for smooth conduct of the game on Thursday, January 06 as well.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

An intense and exciting cricket battle awaits the cricket fans as South Africa will take on India on day four of the second Test match. The fourth day at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg will be most probably the last day of the second Test.

Both India and South Africa have equal chances of winning the Test match as the momentum can slide towards any of the two teams. At present, South Africa are reeling at 118 for two and they need 122 runs more to secure a victory.

India, on the other hand, need to pick just eight wickets on the fourth day to win their first Test series at the Proteas land. Day three of the game saw Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara showed a lot of grit and determination. 

Both the batters were at their aggressive best as they quickly collected runs for their team. The two stitched a beautiful partnership of over 100 runs to make India stable during their second batting innings. 

However, following the drinks break, Proteas seamer Kagiso Rabada unleashed a beast on the field. The pacer picked up three quick wickets of Pujara, Rahane, and Rishabh Pant. Lungi Nigidi also contributed by picking the scalp of Ravi Ashwin. 

After his exploits by the ball in the second innings, Shardul Thakur flaunted his class with the bat as well. The 30-year-old hammered the ball all over the park to collect 28 runs off 24 balls. 

Marco Janesan gave a much-needed breakthrough to his team by sending the all-rounder back to the pavilion. India successfully posted 266 runs on the board as Hanuma Vihari stood till the very end in the middle. Vihari went not out with 40 runs off 84 balls.

South Africa were finally given a target of 240 runs on the challenging wicket of The Wanderers stadium. The opening duo of Aiden Markram and Dean Elgar gave a good start to the Proteas by stitching a crucial partnership of 47 runs. 

As the match was slipping from India, Shardul Thakur bowled a peachy delivery to get rid of Markram when he was playing at 31. Elgar then formed a partnership of over 45 runs with Keegan Petersen but the latter was dismissed by Ravi Ashwin in the 28th over.

Those were the only two wickets for India on day three as Dean Elgar and Rassie van der Dussen will resume with an overnight score of 118/2. The responsibility falls on the Proteas skipper to play a fantastic inning and take the team through in the Test. 

Scoring 122 shouldn’t be a big task for South Africa considering they have plenty of time in hand. Africa batters just need to bat with caution and conviction to level the three-match series by 1-1. 

India, on the other hand, need to do magic with the ball on day four to ensure a victory in the match. The visitors will also have to put a halt on the flow of runs to build pressure on the opposition. 

We predict South Africa to chase the total and win the second Test match against India. This will be Africa’s first victory against India at the Johannesburg as the Men in Blue have never lost a Test match at The Wanderers.
