All of India’s wins against South Africa away from home have come defending a fourth innings total and KL Rahul and Co. will be confident that they could seal yet another famous win at Johannesburg. India have set South Africa a target of 240 in the IND vs SA 2nd Test, with the Proteas having never chased over 220 at the venue previously.

Incidentally, India had set a 241-run target for South Africa in their last Test at the venue, and clinched a 63-run win, bowling out the Proteas for 177. Mohammed Shami had picked up a five-wicket haul, against a batting order that had Hashim Amla, AB de Villiers, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock.

Only twice in their Test history has South Africa successfully chased 300+ targets and both coming against Australia.

  • 414/4 at Perth in Dec 2008
  • 340/5 at Durban in Mar 2002

Successfully chasing anything above 250+ against India is going to be difficult. Only two Test sides have successfully chased a 250+ target against India

  • 342/8 by Australia at Perth on 21 Dec 1977
  • 276/5 by West Indies at Delhi on 29 Nov 1987

According to India’s Day 2 hero, Shardul Thakur the match situation is tricky & the team needs to set as big a target as possible.

“The current match-situation, if you see it’s tricky. The lead that we take from here and the bigger the target we set that is good, because as the game progresses and we all know that the last two days, it is not that easy to bat on the pitch.

“So, from our team’s point of view, the bigger target we set, and take the game long, that is good, because there is a lot of time left in the game.”, declared Shardul Thakur

  • South Africa’s successful chase at the venue is 217 against the Blackcaps.
  • Australia has chased 310 which is the best chasable score at the Wanderers Stadium.
  • SA have scored record 450 runs which came against India in the 4th innings at Johannesburg which came in 2013. The match had ended in a draw with proteas requiring 458 runs to win
