The Test match between India and South Africa to be played in Cape Town from January 11 will be the series decider. However, before this match, the host team has warned the visiting team India. According to Proteas captain Dean Elgar, who was the hero of victory in the second Test against India, India should be ready for chin-music in Cape Town. Elgar has declared that his team is confident of victory in the third Test.
Dean Elgar warned India that I think the third Test is the most important for us. If we keep playing the way we played in Johannesburg, we will win the third Test. Paes (fast bowling) will be our dear friend in Cape Town. He said that I always wanted to lead the team from the front. It’s even easier when teammates follow in your footsteps and trust what you say. I want to play another great innings for my team again in the last Test match.
Let us tell you that India has played a total of 5 Test matches since 1993 against South Africa in Cape Town. In these, India has lost three matches while two matches have been drawn. At the same time, since 2014, the host team has played 7 Test matches at this ground so far, in which it has lost only one match.
The fast bowlers have dominated the matches played between India and South Africa in Cape Town so far. The fast bowlers have taken 124 wickets at this ground while the spinners have taken only 34 wickets. At the same time, this match is very important for India to win the Test series because only after this victory will the Indian team win the Test series for the first time on South African soil.
