SA vs IND 2nd Test Dream11 Team Prediction | Match Preview

SA vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. South Africa and India will play in the 2nd Test match of the India tour of South Africa 2021-22 at the Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.

South Africa:

South Africa lost the first test by 113 runs, and the lack of a good batting unit would have been the primary reason behind the failure.

Elgar and Markram opened the innings, and Elgar scored a fifty in one of the innings, but Markram got out early in both. At No.3, Keegan Petersen and in the middle, Rassie Van der Dussen, failed to score runs in both innings. The senior players, Bavuma and de Kock, scored some crucial runs and helped the team in both innings but couldn’t save the match.

The bowlers performed way better than the batsmen in the first match. Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi picked up seven and eight wickets, respectively. The young fast bowler Marco Janses got five wickets in the last game.

South Africa needs to improve a lot in the batting performance to win the upcoming matches.


India has been unstoppable in the Test format and won the Test match for the first time at Centurion.

Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul performed brilliantly by scoring a fifty and a century in the last match. Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli could not score many runs in the middle-order, but Rahane batted well in the first innings but missed his fifty by just two runs. Pant batted well in the second innings and scored some crucial runs.

In the bowling department, Shami was outstanding as he picked up eight wickets. Bumrah and Siraj picked up five and three wickets, respectively. The spinner, Ashwin, and medium-pacer Shardul Thakur picked up two wickets each.

The Indian team is getting stronger after every match, and they would want to claim the series by winning the next game.
