Team India’s players, led by captain Virat Kohli, trained under the supervision of head coach Rahul Dravid at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Saturday ahead of the second Test against South Africa. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video on social media, which shows players training at the iconic ground as Dravid watched. BCCI wrote in the caption accompanying the video, “We are here at the Wanderers to prepare for the 2nd Test.” The second Test begins on Monday, with India leading the three-match series 1-0 after beating South Africa by 113 runs in the first Test at Centurion.

Here is the video of India’s training session at the Wanderers in Johannesburg:

At Centurion, India’s pace attack demolished South Africa’s batting line-up for an emphatic 113-run victory in the first Test.

India scored 327 runs in the first innings, with KL Rahul scoring a century and fellow opener Mayank Agarwal scoring a half-century. In reply, the Proteas were bowled out for 197, with Mohammed Shami taking five wickets.

India could only manage 174 runs in the second innings but Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami bowled brilliantly to bundle out South Africa for 191 runs to help the visitors win by 113 runs.


After the game, skipper Kohli hailed Shami as one of the “top three seam bowlers in the world”.

“Shami is an absolutely world class bowler, for me one of the top three fast bowlers in the world. Very happy to have taken 200 wickets for him and his performance is impressive,” Kohli said.
