India vs South Africa 2nd Test Weather Forecast
Thunderstorms and rain are likely to play a big part during the course of five days. Earlier, the venues for the second and third Test between India and South Africa series were interchanged because of the Durga Puja. It could prove to be a wrong call by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The local authorities at the ground feel that the match can be restarted 15-20 minutes after rain as the nature of the soil is sand-based. If the game is washed out at Pune, both the sides will share 13 points in the ongoing World Test Championship.
The 2nd Test between India and South Africa will start at 9:30 AM IST.
India: Virat Kohli (captain), Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk),Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Shubman Gill.
