SA vs IND:

(SA vs IND) the ongoing series between India and South Africa has been leveled by 1-1, the third and final test of the series is going to start tomorrow and  India’s red-ball skipper Virat Kohli will be joining his team for the final frontier.

Virat Kohli missed the second match of the series because of his back spasm and the team looked a little off-color in the absence of their regular red-ball skipper.

With Virat Kohli back with the team, it will give a boost to the Indian middle order with Ajinkya Rahane and Pujara founding their rhythm back in the second innings of the second test match.

The Indian team will look to win this test match so that they can claim their first-ever test series win on South African soil, the team India hasn’t won a single test series in South Africa since their renewal to cricket in 1992.

With Virat Kohli returning to the team, the Indian team got a blow in their bowling department as Mohammad Siraj won’t be able to play the final test of the series.

Siraj pulled his hamstring while bowling in the first innings of the second innings, and in the second innings he was able to bowl only 6 overs, and according to reports he will be replaced with veteran Ishant Sharma.

for the team India they had to work on their batting if they want to claim the series, the batting lineup looks fragile at the moment and despite having good starts the team Indian has collapsed.

The main reason for the loss in the second match was team India’s team apart from Pujara and Rahane no one was able to stand against the African bowlers and when they went back to the pavilion the batting collapsed, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant threw his wicket to make the matter worse for the team.
