Brief Preview: India have never managed to win a Test series on South African soil since playing their first in 1992. It's a feat which even the likes of Tendulkars, Dravids, Laxman, Gangulys, Sehwags and Dhonis couldn't achieve in their long and illustrious careers. Even some of the famed Indian batting line-ups have failed to fire on the bouncy and green tops of South Africa and against top quality bowling attacks.
An unfavorable history and hostile conditions will welcome Team India and its charismatic captain when the two teams face off at the picturesque Newlands. India would have to find ways to counter a lethal bowling attack, which includes Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada and Vernon Philander to survive in South Africa. The history may speak another tale but Team India look confident as they ride into the Proteas backyard as the No.1 Test side and will aim to script and rewrite history this time.The Virat Kohli led Team India will go in with all guns blazing and make the most of the wickets starting with Newlands, Cape Town. Take a look at where you can catch the CURRENT SCORE of the match between India and South Africa.
