The second test match between South Africa and India is starting from January 3.
SA vs IND: Indian cricket team is currently on South Africa tour. A two-match test series is going on between the two teams here. It is noteworthy that in the first match of the series, host South Africa had defeated the Indian team by a huge margin of an innings and 32 runs.
So now the second and last match of the series will be played between the two teams at Newlands, Cape Town from Wednesday, January 3. Also, it is very important for the Indian team to win this match. Because India would like to make a great start to the new year by winning this match. However, it will be a difficult task for India to win on the bouncy pitches of South Africa.
On the other hand, before the Cape Town Test match, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has shared a video on its official X account. In this video, the players of the Indian team are seen practicing vigorously. In the video, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mukesh Kumar and captain Rohit Sharma can be seen sweating.
