Wanderers’ ground is’ Lucky ‘for Team India, they haven’t lost a single match in the last 26 years

The second match of the Test series is played between India and South Africa at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. The game has come to a very exciting turn. You will be surprised to know that Wanderers Stadium is considered the ‘stronghold’ of the Indian team. In the last 26 years, the Indian team has not lost a single Test Match here. The Indian team would like to keep this record. If this happens, the team will create history by taking an unassailable lead in the 2-0 series. The team will attempt to capture this series on their ‘Lucky’ turf. Let’s take a look at some of the Indian records related to this terrain.

1. The Indian team played their first test match at Wanderers field in 1992, which was a draw.

2. Team India played its test match for the second time in 1997 on this field. Which was once again a draw without result.

3. The third match was played by the Indian national team in December 2006. In this match, the players performed brilliantly and achieved a great 123-run victory. This was the first victory of the Indian team in this field.

4. Once again in 2013, the Indian team had the opportunity to play test matches on this field. This match was very exciting, but in the end it ended in a draw.

5. In 2018, the Indian team played its fifth Test Match at Wanderers Field, in which the Indian team won by 63 runs.

The Indian team has played 5 or more test matches in 19 venues outside of Asia. Wanderers is the only terrain in this, where the team has not faced defeat so far. The closest to this record is Georgetown in the West Indies, where India has played six Trials and all have been drawn. However, after 2002, India did not play any matches in this field in the West Indies. Next up is New Zealand’s Eden Park, where India has lost only once.
