Johannesburg 2nd Test LIVE: After the explosive press conference that took place before the Indian contingent’s departure for South Africa, Virat Kohli has been giving a miss to media appearances. The India skipper won’t be around to address the media on Sunday with Rahul Dravid set to address media at 03:30 PM IST.

After the Centurion triumph, the tourists will be eying to gain an unassailable lead with a win in Johannesburg. Out of the five-Test matches played at the venue, team India has won two while three have ended in a draw.

While there seems no need to change the winning combination, the conditions at Johannesburg can prompt Kohli-Dravid to consider a couple of changes.

Will Ashwin get a chance at Johannesburg? With the Johannesburg pitch likely to assist the seamers more, it has to be seen if team India will go with R Ashwin or not. Ashwin didn’t get much purchase from the Centurion pitch & managed to scalp just two wickets that too on the final day.

The case looks the same for Johannesburg too where Ashwin is unlikely to get any assistance from the pitch.

Also, in their last outing in 2018, when India won the Test by 63 at Johannesburg, India field four frontline seamers and an all-rounder in Hardik Pandya. And, Ashwin’s last outing at Wanderers was wicketless. The off-spinner bowled 42 overs without any wicket in 2013.

Will Umesh Yadav get a go?  The Wanderers’ surface can tempt team India to bring Umesh Yadav into the playing XI. The surface still has some grass and someone like Umesh Yadav – who bowls fuller length at the speed of 135+ can exploit the conditions well.

Umesh Yadav’s inclusion will bolster India’s pace attack and Kohli & Co can go full guns blazing with 4 genuine seam pacers.

Pujara – Rahane: IN or OUT? While Rahane did manage 48 in the first innings and followed it with a cameo in the second innings, Cheteshwar Pujara once again failed to impress. The duo has been out of the form for quite some time now and it has to be seen if Kohli-Dravid sticks with the duo or gives Hanuma Vihari or Shreyas Iyer a chance who have been warming the bench?
