India’s first goal was to break through Centurion Fortress, which they achieved by comfortably winning the first test against South Africa in four days of action after robbing the teams a full day.
Their second goal is to win their first Test Series in South Africa, which they have never managed to win on their previous seven tours. The Men in Blue have lost six series and drawn and are now hoping to conclude the series at Wanderers, where the second Test Game begins on Monday.
India has played five tests at Wanderers and won two and drew three, meaning they haven’t lost a spot test. They also hope to wear the right form from the first test to the new year. On the flip side, South Africa will be hoping their team have enough match practice, which they lacked ahead of the first test, and be able to level the series against the Indians, whose hitters are still on the line. a problem.
The Indian middle order of Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have all missed big points and hope they will be good in 2022 by scoring points in tons, something they had eluded them for more than a year.
Kohli’s dream run as captain began with the Wanderers in 2018 and his team are now on a quest to make history at a place that has been India’s stronghold in a foreign land. Can the captain silence the managers once and for all, who are making ridiculous claims midway through the series. Only time will tell ?
