Team India has a chance to create history even after the defeat in Johannesburg

Ind vs SA: In the second match of the Test series played in Johannesburg, South Africa defeated Team India by 7 wickets. With this win, South Africa leveled the three-match series 1-1. The last match of the series will be played in Cape Town from January 11. Team India may not have won the Johannesburg Test, but they still have a chance to create history in South Africa.

If the Indian team wins the Cape Town Test, then it will win the series 2-1 and will also capture the first Test series in South Africa. However, if we look at the record of Team India in Cape Town, it is not in his favor. The Indian team has played 5 test matches here so far and has not won even one. They have lost three matches and have drawn two matches. Team India last played in Cape Town in the 2018 tour and was defeated by 72 runs. However, Team India would like to improve their record in Cape Town by winning the last Test of the series.

Because of this, Team India has a chance to win the series

– Fantastic bowling attack- Team India’s bowling attack has performed brilliantly in the last few years. This pace attack of Team India, decorated with star bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Siraj and Umesh Yadav, has the capacity to take 20 wickets in the match. Apart from this, the responsibility of spin is handled by R Ashwin.

Team India’s recent performance on foreign soil

Team India has performed well on foreign soil recently. He has captured two consecutive Test series in Australia. Apart from this, he is ahead 2-1 in the 5-match Test series in England. Especially impressive performances of young players like Rishabh Pant, Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur have played a very important role in all these historic victories.

So far only Bumrah, Shami, Siraj and Shardul Thakur have got a chance to play in this series. These four bowlers have bowled well in both the test matches. Although Siraj’s injury in the second Test will certainly worry Team India, but they have bowlers like Ishant and Umesh who can replace them.

Lack of experience in South African team’s batting lineup

This is probably the weakest South African batting lineup that the Indian team is facing. De Kock has retired after the first Test, due to which the South African batting has become more vulnerable. The team’s batting revolves around the captain Dean Elgar. Elgar also proved this in the Johannesburg Test.
