Watch out for

M.Morkel: He is not a good swing bowler as Dale Styen but with his consistent line and length he can make any trouble any batsmen as we have seen in last game, with two wickets in one over, he setup the game for South Africa nicely.

Yuvraj Singh: Now is the time or it will came never, he has failed to perform with the bat in last few matches and it is really a worry sign for Indian middle order. He is such an important member of the team that every people can only hope for the best at Johannesburg to lead India fight back in the series.

Pitch and conditions

The pitch at New Wanderers, Johannesburg will have less bounce than Durban wicket will assist fast bowler with lot of seam movement. With the overcast condition expected for the match day it will be tricky situation for team winning the toss. However team who wins the toss is most likely to bat first and put challenging total on the board.
