Sri Lanka had a poor start in the First Test at Centurion as they got bundled out for a paltry 180 after being put to bat first on a green pitch. By the close of the opening day's play, South Africa steadily moved to 90 for 1 in 34 overs.
If there was one tag that could define the Cape Cobras from South Africa, it will be 'powerful performers'. They have the players who have performed in every format of the game, around the world and if they fire in unision it could be very difficult for the opposition team to stop them in their tracks.
Here's a quick look at the players who could make all the difference to the team in their second showing at the Champions League T20:
South Africa are under pressure at 52 for 2 in 16 overs by the close of play on Day 3 in their second innings. Harbhajan Singh struck twice in the last 10 minutes of play to tilt the match in India's favour.
India recovered towards 92 for 4 in 30.5 overs before bad light prevented any further action on an eventful second day's play at Kingsmead. As many as 18 wickets fell down on this crazy second day but India are slightly on the frontfoot with a lead of 166 runs.
South Africa have effortlessly put India on the mat in the first Test at Centurion by reducing them to a paltry 136 for 9 in 38.1 overs before it was too dark for any further play on a truncated opening day.
