India tour of South Africa: South Africa Vs India 1 st Test at Johannesburg, Dec 18-22, 2013
Teams: South Africa Vs India
Venue: Played at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg
Time: Match scheduled to begin at 10:30 local time (08:30 GMT)
Pitch report : The Wanderers groundsman has promised a typical Johannesburg surface, which will facilitate bounce and carry but also have plenty of runs. Graeme Smith was happy with what he saw the day before the Test. "There's moisture in this wicket and cracks are looking good," he said. The persistent rain that fell over the Highveld throughout last week has mostly dried up but thundershowers are expected every day of the game. Thursday looks like it could be the wettest.
