The second and final Test match between South Africa and India starts from January 3 in Cape Town. This will be the last Test match of experienced South African batsman Dean Elgar. After this test match, Dean Elgar is going to retire from international test cricket.

Let us tell you, in the first test match played between these two teams, the South African team had performed very well and won the match by an innings and 32 runs. Dean Elgar batted very well in this match and played an important role in his team’s victory. Dean Elgar had scored 185 runs in 287 balls with the help of five fours in the first Test match.

Before the second Test match, the experienced batsman said, ‘I play matches only to win. I just don’t care at all what the statistics say. I only care about winning. I have shared many memorable moments with the team and all the players are very nice. You don’t reach the top by winning a Test series but for me it is like winning the World Cup. This is because I have never got a chance to play in the World Cup. This is my area and I want to win it.

This is a big test for all of us: Dean Elgar

Dean Elgar further said, ‘We all know very well that now we cannot lose this Test series. The New Year Test at Newlands will be very memorable for all of us. No one would want this Test series to be a draw because it would make us feel that we have lost this series. This is a very big series for all of us.

At this time we are not thinking at all that this series should remain a draw. We are playing with the intention of winning this. To captain your team and that too against India is really a great honour. The Indian team is a power house and we are currently in a position where it can be said that we can win this series 2-0.
