IND vs SA 2nd Test Day 1 Score Update: KL Rahul leading India© AFP




India vs South Africa Live Score 2nd Test: India won the toss and elected to bat in the second Test being played at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Monday. The great news is that Virat Kohli has been ruled out due to a back spasm and KL Rahul is leading India. Hanuma Vihari has been included in the XI in place of Kohli. South Africa, on the other hand, have included Duane Oliver in their XI. A confident Indian team is looking forward to their maiden series win in Rainbow Nation. India won the first Test comfortably by 113 runs and there is no reason they cannot do it again in this Test. For the record, India have not lost a single Test in Johannesburg – they have won two and drawn three. India’s pace attack – which is currently rated as the best by many – will enjoy the pace and bounce of the Wanderers. His famous middle order form like Cheteshwar Pujara, and Ajinkya Rahane remains a concern, but Indian think tanks would believe this famous old adage on being temporary and class permanent.
