India Tour Of South Africa
India vs South Africa: Team India will travel to Johannesburg today amid controversy over Virat Kohli’s captaincy. Team India will play 3 Tests and 3 ODIs in the tour of South Africa. The Test series starts on December 26. The Indian team has never won a Test series on South African soil. This time he is going on a tour of South Africa with the aim of creating this history.
It is a known fact that Virat Kohli is no longer the ODI and T20 captain. But, as a Test captain he wants to repeat his successes. Virat Kohli, a two-time Test series winner in Australia, has made it clear that his goal is for Team India to win the Test series in South Africa. Injured Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the Test squad. However, Virat Kohli has faith in the team.
Teamindia returns 7 times empty-handed from South Africa!
Team India, which has toured South Africa 7 times, has returned disappointed every time. Team India, led by Virat Kohli, lost the Test series 2-1 on the last tour. Team India drew the Test series 1-1 in 2010-11. The series is significant in terms of the World Test Championship. So this time Virat Kohli wants his team to win in South Africa.
However, the absence of three senior players, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara, has made it very difficult for Team India. Rohit Sharma is on the farm. But, he missed the Test series due to a tendon injury.
