TOSS: SA opt to bat
South Africa win the coin toss and opt to bat. Three changes for India – one forced. Parthiv Patel replaces an injured Wriddhiman Saha while KL Rahul comes in for Shikhar Dhawan and Ishant Sharma replaces Bhuvneshwar Kumar. South Africa also forced to make one change – Lungi Ngidi comes in for injured Dale Steyn.
India set for major changes in South Africa stronghold
India are set to rope in KL Rahul for Shikhar Dhawan, as TOI had reported on Thursday. But that’s not the only change to expect. Ishant Sharma, the tall Delhi pacer, could come into the XI in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. The latter, who impressed in the first innings at Newlands, will sit out as conditions here may not aid swing bowling.
