Indian team: The Indian team will play a two-Test series against South Africa under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. The first test match will be played on December 26th. The Indian team has not won a Test series on South African soil to date. There is big, good news for Team India before the test match. A star player has joined the team.
This player joined the team
The star batsman of the Indian team, Virat Kohli, had returned to India for personal reasons. He also did not play in the three-day intra-squad game against South Africa. But now Kohli has returned to Team India and is available for the first Test match. He sweated profusely during training. Kohli was not part of Team India in the earlier T20 and ODI series because he requested rest.
Important players in the Test series
Indian young players have performed amazingly in ODI and T20 against South Africa. But Team India has yet to win a single Test series on South African soil. The good thing is that this time all the important players are playing in the Test series and are fit. Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul will play in the Test series against South Africa. These players have also enabled the Indian team to win many games on their own in the past.
That’s the record
So far, 42 test matches have been played between India and South Africa, of which the South African team won 17. The Indian team has won 15 matches. 10 games were drawn. At the same time, Team India has so far managed to win only four test matches on South African soil. In such a situation, Team India’s record against South Africa is poor.
Indian Test Series Team:
Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Abhimanyu Easwaran, KL Rahul (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah (vice-captain), Prasidh Krishna and KS Bharat (wicketkeeper).
