New Delhi:

After the first match drubbing, India lock horns with South Africa for the second Test at SuperSport Park, Centurion on Saturday.

South Africa have won the toss and they have decided to bat first once again. The track looks fine as of now but cracks could emerge on day 3, which would make things tricky for India.

India, on the other hand, would look to bounce back and win the second Test to level the 3-match series by 1-1.

Captain Kohli made several changes in the squad with KL Rahul, Ishant Sharma and Parthiv Patel returning to the side in place of Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Wriddhiman Saha.

South Africa also made one change and Lungisani Ngidi replaced the injured Dale Steyn.
