South Africa vs India 2nd Test Match: Fantasy Cricket Betting Tips

Test matches have a tendency to shift gears pretty quickly, which is why betting on test matches in fantasy cricket is tricky as well. The second clash between India and South Africa is going to be held at SuperSport Park in Centurion. The pitch of this ground provides considerable advantage to the seamers, which is why Indian batsmen need to be on guard. Playing spin is like second nature to them, but when the fast bowling, they need to up-their-game.

A test is a match where batsmen need to stay on crease for as long as possible even if their strike rate isn’t that high. Here are a few fantasy cricket betting tips for this test:

  1. Pick seamers instead of spinners for your team. Although both Ashwin and Jadeja are excellent bowlers and have been known to trouble the Proteas, if the pitch isn’t giving any spin, then they would just be hit out of the park.

  2. Pick any one among AB De Villiers and Virat Kohli. Both players are game changers, but having both of them would cost your team a lot.

  3. Go with South Africa’s top order and India’s middle order instead of the other way round. Currently, the top order of the Men in Blue is struggling, so if you want to win some money, go with the Proteas leading batsmen.

Use these simple fantasy cricket betting tips when you select your fantasy cricket team for the upcoming South Africa vs India 2nd Test Match.
