The Venue – Kingsmead, Durban
India have won only 1 of the last 4 test matches at Durban in which India won by 87 runs in 2010.
The Betting, to win the 2nd Test Match
Although, South Africa have great batsman with the likes of Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers, the indian batting line-up is quite promising, where they have Pujara and Kohli who can bat till the end of the day and make some good strokes with their bat. It’s hard to make a win for the hosts and the scope of draws is still high according to the previous records.
If South Africa lose their early wickets of Amla, Kallis and Plessis then India could stop them to score big. However, I think the India have the capability to beat the Hosts by an Innings.
Bet: India to win, BetFred.
