In the first Test match played in Centurion, the best wicketkeeper batsman of the Indian team, KL Rahul also batted very well and scored an important century for his team in the first innings. The most disappointing thing for the Indian team is that apart from KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, no other batsman is in form at the moment. Not only this, the team’s bowlers have also failed to bowl well.
After the end of the first Test, Indian team captain Rohit Sharma had said that apart from Jasprit Bumrah, no other bowler was able to bowl well. At present, both the teams will have their eyes on the second test match which is starting from January 3. Now it remains to be seen whether the Indian team can win the second test or whether South Africa wins this series.
