The Indian team has not won a single Test series in South Africa. Team India would like to end the drought of 30 years this time. At the same time, India's legends Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are going to be seen playing for India for the first time after the World Cup. Fans are very keen to see both of them playing for Team India once again.

Doing so hard to achieve something- Rohit SharmaWinning in this Test series, will it work as a balm for the defeat in the World Cup final, Rohit reacted while talking to the press and said,
"I do not know whether the victory in the Test series in South Africa can be the balm of the defeat of the World Cup final or not. A World Cup is a World Cup. We have worked so hard, we got some results. India's World Cup hero Mohammed Shami will miss the series due to an ankle injury and Rohit termed the lack of the fast bowler as detrimental to the team.

"I think I will miss Shami immensely for what he has done for us over the years. Someone will have to feed in their place but it won't be easy. But we are full of confidence" (with language)
