India A vs South Africa A 2nd Test Prediction and Preview 25th Aug 2015

India A vs South Africa A 2nd unofficial test will begin from August 25th. The first unofficial test between the two teams was a very entertaining one. At one point it almost looked like that the hosts would lose the match, but at the end India A managed to end the match in a draw. But still what a great comeback the visitors have made! In triangular series they looked tired and they lost all the games. But at the first unofficial test South Africa A showed that it will be a big mistake if India A team thinks that they are going to win the series very easily.

Now India A team is under pressure at the 2nd test. They almost lost the first game and in the entire match they never looked at ease against the South African bowlers. Indian bowlers too had a really tough time, South Africa A batsmen were able to play them very easily. It was a very tough match for India. They played well on the fifth day which is the reason that the match ended in a draw.

Dane Peidt is without doubt the star of South Africa A team in the first game. It is after a long time that a South African off spinner was able to give batsmen this much trouble. Indian batsmen are known for their ability to play the spin ball very well but even they found it hard to play him. This 25 year old player is definitely going to have a bright future in the international cricket very soon. Indian team management needs to find out a plan to play him well in the India A vs South Africa A 2nd unofficial test. He took all the crucial wickets in the first innings and in the 2nd innings however Indian players looked much more comfortable against his bowling.

Now to the player who single handedly saved the Indian team from an embarrassing loss. Karun Nair played an outstanding innings, and his century was the reason that the visitors could not managed to win the first game. Karun played a lot of shots around the wicket and he never looked uncomfortable. Tamil Nadu all rounder Vijay Shankar also played well in the 2nd innings.  Even in the morning it looked like the visitors can win the first game. But mainly because of these tow players the game ended in a draw. The way Indian team played in the 2nd innings gave a lot of hope to the fans. If they play like this in the 2nd test then there is a definite chance they will be able to win the series.

It also seems that the Kerala weather was better for the SA team as none of their players looked very tired during the 4 day game. Chennai weather was so hot that a lot of their players were hospitalized, but here they looked much fitter and the fielders were quicker around the field too. Indian players too were less tired in this weather. There is a breeze going which is very comfortable for the players. So we can definitely expect to see another very exciting match from 25th August between these two teams. There are a lot of people who came to see the 1st unofficial test and the organizers are hoping that India A vs South Africa A 2nd unofficial test will have a packed house. Everyone is hoping that the next game will also have a result and will not end in a draw.
