ANIL KUMBLE, India's bespectacled leg- spinner, is likely to be the only change in the tourists' XI for the second match of their South African tour. Kumble is expected to come in for Ravi Shastri for the four-day match against a Combined Bowl XI starting in Springs, near Johannesburg, today. The rest of the Indian side should be unchanged from that which beat the Nicky Oppenheimer XI by 80 runs on Thursday.
