The Indian team will play its first match at the Centurion venue from Sunday as part of the Test series in South Africa. Many players, including South Africa captain Dean Elgar, have repeatedly said that they are in a stronger position than India at home. However, former South Africa captain Ali Butcher does not think so. He explained that Team India had the upper hand in this three-Test series.
The first match of the series will be played at the SuperSports Park in Centurion, which is considered the stronghold of South Africa. The Indian team played its first Test at the ground in 1995. TeamIndia has lost both matches played here since then. But Butcher said victory would not be easy for South Africa this time.
Among Indian bowlers, Jaspreet Bumra took 101, Shami 195, Siraj 33 and Ishant Sharma 311 wickets. In the last four years, these bowlers have given India historic victories in many Test matches and series. Ali Bachar said the bowlers were a hero in the team’s success, especially abroad. “The first Test will be played at the Centurion at an altitude of 5000 feet above Indian sea level. Johannesburg is 6000 feet high. The climate of these places, fast bounce helps fast bowlers. The current Indian team has the best fast bowling team in the last 30 years, so I think India will have the upper hand in the first two matches. ” Bachar explained.
Vice-captain KL Rahul also hinted that he would play in the fourth fast bowler squad. ‘Every team wants to take 20 wickets to win a Test match. Rahul said that we will also use this strategy.
