South Africa won the toss and bats first at Kranchi

Coming to the Tests, and to the first one, the South Africans had earlier steamrolled Sri Lanka, at home, in a 2-Test match series. Now though they are in away conditions but would look to perform at their best still. Kagiso is expected to feature, after almost bowling in the white ball format for a year As far as Pakistan are concerned, the biggest plus for them is the return of skipper Babar, who was completely unavailable for the Tests against New Zealand earlier. Also, with Faheem in the side, in place of an extra spinner, the Pakistanis reckon that seam may have more of a role to play in the first encounter. It looks all set to be a promising clash.
