After the recurring winning of various series and matches, India is about to face a tough competition in the match against South Africa, which is to be played in Cape Town.
The men in blue have won 9 consecutive series, which contributed to the achievement of the top rank in the International Cricket Council’s rankings. However, these victories were achieved primarily due to the batting friendly wickets, which will be a challenge in the upcoming matches.
The players of South Africa are expected to prepare the ‘green top’ wickets for the upcoming test series in Cape Town, Pretoria, and Johannesburg. All the matches are compactly scheduled in the month of January to offer the most difficult scenarios for the Indian players.
It is observed that the Indian players have struggled against the home bowling attacks. India has achieved only 2 victories among the 17 tests on tour in South Africa. However, this time the players are braced to perform in the best way to offer victory against all odds.
The coach, Ravi Shastri, is very hopeful regarding the forthcoming matches and has stated that his team is all set to perform the finest. He even said before the first test at Newlands that his team has gathered a lot of experience from the past and is all set to deliver outstanding performance.
He also proudly added that his team takes up every challenge with the same spirit of a home game and plays accordingly. The team members adapt to the dynamic challenges of the opposition team and playgrounds, which is the strength.
South Africa is on the second rank in the ICC test rankings and is equally prepared to offer a tough scenario for the Indian players. With Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander on the opposition, the upcoming matched will be highly interesting to watch.
