IND vs SA 2nd Test Day 1 Score Updates: Virat Kohli Celebrates.© AFP
India vs South Africa Live Score 2nd Test: High confidence in the Virat Kohli-led Indian team will face South Africa in the second test match at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Monday with hopes of sealing their first Rainbow Nation win. India had won the first test comfortably by 113 runs and there is no reason why they can’t do it again in this test. For the record, India has never lost a test in Johannesburg – they have won two and drawn three. India’s pace attack – currently rated by many as the best – will love the pace and bounce off the Wanderers. The shape of their famous middle order consisting of Cheteshwar Pujara, Captain Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane remains a concern but the Indian think tank is said to believe in the famous old saying that form is temporary and class is permanent. As for South Africa, they will have to be without Quinton de Kock, who has retired from Test cricket. The good news for them is that pacemaker Duanne Oliver is available for selection.
