Ind Vs Sa Test Series
India Tour Of South Africa: The Test series between India (IND) and South Africa (SA) is just a few days away. Under such circumstances Team India is busy in practice. The Indian team has not won a single Test series on South African soil so far. That’s why this tour is so important, the team will enter the ring with the goal of winning the series under any circumstances. Apart from Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli, the greatest players in the Indian team, the record of other batsmen on South African soil is not very good. Legendary players Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman also fought here. Let us know today why Indian batsmen are struggling here.
The reason for the South African pitch ..
The South African pitch is considered more dangerous than England’s and Australia’s. Here the speed, the bouncing with the swing is bothersome. Elsewhere, however, there is no such pitch. This is the reason why batsmen work so hard for runs here. Indian batsmen do not have the experience to play on such pitches. However, the team did a fantastic job in Australia last year. Apart from this, the Indian batsmen in England also impressed with their performance. This time the Indian team is expected to improve its record on African soil.
Dravid and Laxman also fought for runs.
Rahul Dravid, who calls himself the Wall of India, does not have a good record on South African soil. In Africa, Dravid played 11 matches and scored only 624 runs in 22 innings. He was only able to score a century, two half-centuries here. VVS Laxman, on the other hand, played 10 Test matches in South Africa. In this he was able to score only 566 runs. Laxman failed to score a single century on South African soil. He was only able to hit four half centuries.
Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli have great records.
Sachin Tendulkar’s record on South African soil is also good. He became the only Indian batsman to score more than 1000 runs in South Africa. Tendulkar played 15 matches and scored 1161 runs in 28 innings. During this time, his bat scored five centuries and three fifties. Apart from this, it also rains a lot of runs here with Virat Kohli batting. Kohli played five Test matches in Africa. He scored 558 runs at an average of 55.80. During this period, Kohli scored 2 centuries and 2 fifties.
