Grand League Punts

> Marco Jansen had a stunning breakthrough series against India two years ago, and he has an outrageous record at home, averaging 18.63 with the ball. The left-armer has taken 18 wickets in his last 5 Test innings vs India. Needless to say, he's guaranteed to fetch points with the bat too. Captaining Jansen could just be your ticket to winning big.

Probable XIs

India likely XI: Rohit Sharma (capt), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj

South Africa likely XI: Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, Tony de Zorzi, Temba Bavuma (capt), Keegan Petersen, Kyle Verreynne (wk), Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Gerald Coetzee, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi
