Match Details

India A vs South Africa A, 2nd Unofficial Test
17th September 2019, 9:30 AM IST
Srikantadatta Narasimha Raja Wadiyar Ground, Mysore


In what is the last game of a highly entertaining South Africa A tour of India, both sides face off for one last time in the second Test, starting on Tuesday. While the likes of Aiden Markram, Zubayr Hamza and Lungi Ngidi look to get a hold of the conditions in India heading into the all-important series, India A has made a couple of changes with Test regulars Umesh Yadav and Kuldeep Yadav’s inclusions headlining the build-up to the game. The South Africans did give a good account of themselves in the first Test but couldn’t withstand the spin Test that Jalaj Saxena put forth. They look to make amends in the final game of the series although the India A side isn’t one to take any game lightly with the likes of Priyank Panchal and Saha keen to a make point.

Pitch Report

The pitch should aid the pacers early on although the spinners will have the ultimate say in this game. Batsmen will find strokeplay tough initially with an even contest between bat and ball on the cards.

Weather Report

Persistent rain renders the possibility of this game very less. A draw seems to be the only possible outcome for this game with the pacers expected to make use of the overcast conditions.

Injuries: No injury concerns are reported from either side with both teams set to have the entire squad to choose their playing eleven for this game,

Probable Playing XI

India A:

A couple of changes are on the cards for the Indians with a completely new but dependable opening pair of Panchal and Easwaran. Gill drops to number three with fellow Punjab teammate, Anmolpreet Singh also set to feature in the middle order. Umesh Yadav and Kuldeep Yadav replace Shahbaz Nadeem and Shardul Thakur and should be key for the Indians, who are led by Wriddiman Saha for this game on Thursday.

Priyank Panchal, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Shubman Gill, Anmolpreet Singh, Karun Nair, W Saha, K Gowtham, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Shivam Dube and Shahbaz Nadeem

South Africa A:

Edward Moore should find a place in the side with Khaya Zondo set to make way for the Warriors opener. He will bat alongside Aiden Markram, who leads the side as well. In Zubayr Hamza, Pieter Malan and Heinrich Klaasen, they have three very talented individuals who are crucial to the South African fortunes in this game. Star pacer, Lungi Ngidi picked five wickets in first Test and looks to be in decent form as he builds his match fitness heading into the India-South Africa Test series.

Aiden Markram, Ed Moore, Zubayr Hamza, Pieter Malan, Heinrich Klaasen, Wiaan Mulder, Senuran Muthusamy, Dane Piedt, Lungi Ngidi, Marco Jansen and Lutho Sipamla

Top Picks:

Heinrich Klaasen has enjoyed a good tour of India A in which he has certainly stood out. He is preferred as the lone wicket-keeper in the fantasy team which also features Priyank Panchal and Aiden Markram. Zubayr Hamza missed out in the first Test but he should bounce back from the disappointment given his immense potential. Priyank Panchal and Kuldeep Yadav are must-haves for this game with the pitch suiting their skill-sets perfectly. Two South African allrounders who are bound to chip in with both bat and ball, Wiaan Mulder and Senuran Muthusamy are picked. In the bowling department, Gowtham should continue his good form alongside Lungi Ngidi and Umesh Yadav, who should revel with the new ball under overcast conditions.
