Virat kohli 2nd test IND v SA

Virat Kohli has been ruled out of the 2nd Test against South Africa in the on-going tour. The Indian captain has had an upper back spasm and is likely to get ready before the next Test.

KL Rahul, who will lead the Indian ODI team against South Africa, becomes the 34th Test captain for the Indian men’s team.

KL Rahul revealed during the toss that it is every Indian player’s dream to captain the country.

“Unfortunately Virat has had an upper back spasm, the physios are working on him and hopefully he’ll recover for the next Test. It is every Indian player’s dream to captain his country. Really honoured and looking forward to this challenge. We have had a few good wins here and hopefully we’ll look to continue that. Hanuma Vihari comes in place of Virat. Just the one change. It was a good Test at Centurion overall. We really performed well as a team and are really excited about this match,” he said during the toss.

India playing XI for the 2nd Test: KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Hanuma Vihari, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj.
