Today Match Prediction of Dream11 Team for IND vs SA, 1st Test Match Preview, Pitch Report, Playing XI, Player Form & Dream11 Team
IND vs SA Tips, Stats & Team for Test Match Prediction
Match: SA vs IND Test Match Prediction
Time: 26 December, 13:30 PM (IST)
Series: 1st Test Match
Venue: SuperSport Park - Centurion, South Africa
- Dean Elgar is one batter in the South Africa team that can dig in and play a long inning. A lot of South Africa success depends on the form of their skipper. He is very capable against fast bowling and equally potent against the spinners. Back him as South Africa top scorer.
- From India, we are very optimistic about Virat Kohli doing well in the series. Kohli is due for a big one and the recent controversies must have made him even more determined to do well. We are backing Kohli as India top scorer in the game.
- Mohammed Shami will get a lot of seam movement from this surface and when on song, Shami is nearly impossible to play. Back him as India top bowler in the game.
TV Channel : The series will be broadcasted on Star Network in India.
Live Streaming: Live streaming of the series will be available on Disney Hotstar.
Weather & Pitch Report:
Day 1, 2 and 5th have plenty of rain predicted which is not a great news for the cricket fanatics. As per weather prediction, there is 50 per cent chance of rain on Day 1, 100 per cent on Day 2 and 60 per cent on the final day.
The surface will offer plenty of help for the fast bowlers on the first two days. Day 3 and 4 should be the best to bat.
Chasing teams have struggled to chase even 200 in the fourth innings at this ground and neither India nor South Africa are very confident about their batting at the moment. We feel both skippers will be keen to bat.

Small League Team: Pre-Toss
Who will win today match: SA vs IND Test Match Team
Its going to be a tight series. The batters from both teams are struggling and the team that bats well will emerge as winners. We do not think South Africa have the quality to sustain against the Indian pace attack which gives the visitors a great opportunity to win their first series in South Africa. We are going in with India as winners for this match.
SA Key Players:
The skipper will have to play a big role for the hosts. He is the only batter who has proven his credentials as a Test batter. Also, he is an opener which makes him even more important. A good series for Elgar will help South Africa challenge the daunting opposition.
Rassie van der Dussen:
Dussen is predominantly a One Day batter but has made it to the South Africa Test side on account of some fine performances in the domestic circuit. In South Africa previous Test series against West Indies, he was the teams second-highest run-scorer with 125 runs in 2 games.
Ngidi will pose a threat to the Indian batters for sure, probably more than Kagiso Rabada. His height is an advantage to him, especially in Centurion where there is some extra bounce on the surface.
IND Key Players:
Rahul has been in sensational form across formats for India. While every Indian batter struggled in England, Rahul looked at complete ease against a quality pace attack. The batter has been promoted as the vice-captain of the side and a lot of India success depends on him.
Kohli has been struggling in the last year or so. He has not scored a century in any format since 2019. Also, the recent controversy where he was sacked as ODI captain must have hurt him. He has a point to prove thus will be even more determined to make a statement in the series. We feel Kohli will have a big series against South Africa.
India fast bowling group has been the reason for their success overseas. Shami is the only Indian bowler that relies on seam movement rather than swing, and the wicket aids seam bowling which makes Shami a lethal weapon.
SA Team Form:
- South Africa last Test series was against West Indies in West Indies which they won 2-0.
IND Team Form:
- Team India has been on a rampage in Tests. They have beaten Australia, England and New Zealand in recent times.
