India last chose Wriddhiman Saha and two spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja behind the stumps. With Rohit Sharma deciding to open in the trials for the first time, the Indian selectors were justified in their selection and could be an unchanged team.
SA Team News
South Africa may try to make changes for this second Test after being shortened in the first match. Zubair Hamza is pushing for a spot in the batting line-up, where he can replace Thunis de Bruyn, while Eric Norte is also looking for his Test debut. Bringing the latter as a third speed option would change the balance of the team, however.

The Proteas have 15 wins, while there have been ten draws.
