India's Predicted XI For Cape Town Test

Cape Town: With the series locked at 1-1, the third and final Test promises to be a mouthwatering one. The final Test that would be played at Newlands, Cape Town would once again assist pacers. In all probability, Mohammed Siraj – who picked up a hamstring injury at Johannesburg – could miss out. If that is the case, there would be a toss-up between Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.

Also, regular India captain Virat Kohli, who had to miss the second Test – would be back in the XI and that would be a major boost for the visiting side. Kohli would get in the side in place of Hanuma Vihari, who did a pretty decent job with the tail in the second essay at Wanderers.

The rest of the side remains the same. It is unlikely the hosts would tinker with the winning combination. SA would play the same XI at Cape Town.

KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (C), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj/ Ishant Sharma/ Umesh Yadav
