The Indian team will begin its tour of South Africa with the Centurion Test on Sunday. There will be three Test matches between the two teams. It will be followed by a three-match ODI series. So far the Indian team has not won any series in South Africa. Former India Test captains Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara have been battling poor form for some time now. Two players have struggled for runs in the last few Test series, so this series has been very important to them. However, Team India coach Rahul Dravid said that not only Pujara and Rahane but the entire team needs to perform.
Rahul Dravid has said that the series cannot be won if one plays captain Virat Kohli or Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara said the contribution in this series will be significant. “We know that not only Virat or Pujara but everyone on the team will win series like this. That is why everyone’s cooperation is important. Pujara is an important member of the team but the cooperation of everyone in the team is very important. ” Said.
Rahane scored his last century in January 2019. In 2020 he scored 163 runs in 8 innings at an average of 20.37. This year he has scored only 29.82 runs in 24 innings. He also scored only 95 runs in 4 innings in the series against New Zealand. If Pujara wants to maintain his Test career, he will have to excel in this series. ‘Like the rest of the players, there was a very positive conversation with Rahane. Practiced very well this week. He is in good condition. ” Said. Ajinkya Rahane’s record abroad is amazing. He scored over 3000 runs on foreign soil with an average of over 40.
