South Africa pacers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel are yet to fire in this series and this can be expected today. Kagiso Rabada has bowled better in this series by troubling the Indian batsmen.
For India, their star players Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina are not playing to their potential. Needless to say if these three players play well, the Indian score will go past the 300 mark easily.
