Just In: The Team 2 Call In 2 New Players After The First India vs South Africa Test Match

In some breaking news coming in right after the first Test Match the South African Team has called up Duanne Oliver and Lungi Ngidi as a backup for Dale Steyn. Steyn, who had put in all the hard- yards after recovering from a massive injury, unfortunately, injured himself one more time and has been ruled out for a minimum of 6 weeks.

The South African coach Ottis Gibson also confirmed this news. While there is no doubt that the coach was gutted in the absence of his premier fast bowler, he was also looking forward to Oliver and Lungi as they are bright young prospects raring to go.

While Oliver has already played 5 Test Matches for South Africa, the 21-year-old Lungi has only played T20 cricket before and it would be interesting to see if he is in line for his debut. Having said that, the duo will have serious competition from all-rounder Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo and it would be interesting to see what combination the Proteas come out with.

On the other hand, even the Indians might make a few changes, 2 most prominent ones being getting in KL Rahul for Dhawan and Rahane for maybe a Rohit Sharma? What do you think? We would love to know your opinion on this one.
