Rohit Sharma will face his biggest test yet when he plays on faster bouncier tracks. If his consistency is anything to go by, expect a big score from this man.
Shikhar Dhawan has the most international hundreds in 2013. India will look to him for a good start in the early overs.
Cheteshwar Pujara has been the picture of consistency for India and he will do his best to be a thorn in South Africa'a flesh.
Zaheer Khan is on the comeback trail. When one sees his record in South Africa, it may be a sign of things to come.
AB de Villiers may not have a great record against India, but his explosive batting can change a game in a matter of minutes.
Jacques Kallis signifies experience and could be a handful for the Indians with both bat and ball in his hands.
