SA vs IND Dream11 Prediction: Top captain and vice-captain picks:

Virat Kohli: Kohli’s average of 51 in South Africa is the highest of any Indian batter with at least 10 innings in the country. The right-handed batter will look to maintain his good record against the Protease in their backyard.

Aiden Markram: The onus will be on Aiden Markram to get crucial runs for his team. In 35 matches, the middle-order batter has amassed 2,285 runs at an average of 36.26, including six centuries and 10 fifties.
Jasprit Bumrah: Bumrah has played six Test matches against South Africa, taking 26 wickets. He has taken wickets at an average of 24.68 and economy of 2.92. With such an impeccable record, one can certainly expect the pacer to rise to the occasion.

Gerald Coetzee: With a fairly young Test career, Coetzee has shown great promise in all 3 formats. Expect some pace and swing from this youngster. He is likely to trouble the Indian batters with the tricks up his sleeve.
