Preview:

The Proteas batting unit looks good with Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram, AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla all making significant contributions at Centurion. de Villiers is leading the runs charts and he will be the big threat for India due to his ability to score at a brisk rate. Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel are all amongst the wickets and are likely to trouble the Indians on a pacy Wanderers track. Debutant Lungisani Ngidi took a six fer in the second innings of the last test and he is the bowler to watch out for.

Virat Kohli’s magnificent 153 had taken India closer to South Africa’s first innings total of 335. The skipper has scored the most runs for his side so far in this series and he will be the key man in this batting line up. The visitors will also need Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay to step up. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is likely to be brought back for this game and the swing bowler seems a strong candidate to pick up a few early wickets. Mohammed Shami (9 wickets) and Jasprit Bumrah (7 wickets) have also done a reasonably good job with the ball.

India won the toss and elected to bat first

India won by 63 runs.
