India Bank On Shami, Bumrah
Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Burah will have to do the bulk of the damage if India want to restrict South Africa within 202. The two right-arm seamers were one of the major reasons behind comprehensive victory in Centurion and looking at the track on offer here in Johannesburg, there is no reason why they can’t repeat the same.
