Indian Team is ready to replace opener Shikhar Dhawan and wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha from KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan in the squad for second test match against South Africa commencing from today at the Centurion.
In the first test, Shikhar Dhawan and Wriddhiman Saha didn’t showcased good performance in the game and hence it was considered that the duo might not secure a place in Indian squad for the second test.

This change is yet not finalized while the above written two modifications are very sure as per reports.
India has no chance left but to bounce back in the series by triumphing the second test so as to keep its expectations of victory of the tournament active. Though it would not be trouble-free for Virat Kohli and his men as the Centurion wicket is likely to be tougher than the Cape Town one and more demanding.
