“I feel finally India’s Nos. 3, 4 and 5 will together score more than 100 runs in the first innings, whenever India gets to bat. That means – Pujara, Rahane and Kohli will together score more than 100 runs. They might score one or two half-centuries as well,” he said while speaking on his YouTube channel.

The ex-India opener also said that he feels the side winning the toss would like to bat first at Newlands. He added: “Whoever wins the toss will bat first. The side winning the toss has been batting on the Cape Town ground for a considerable while and they are also winning after batting first, it is almost 50-50. Batting first, in my opinion, is a huge positive. Dean Elgar says they can win even after losing the toss.”
