South Africa vs India 1st Test Pitch Report:

The Protea nation is known for its unreliable pitches. The first two days of the test match are going to be crucial for the bowlers. The ball will swing on opening two days, as long as the seam is there, and the batters will have a stern test to prove their batting in the Rainbow nation. The third day will be a paradise for the batters as the pitch will no longer assist bowlers on that particular day. The last two days, again, will be crucial with an unexpected bounce from the surface.
