Cape Town: The final match of the ongoing test series between India and South Africa will be played in Cape Town. The match will be played between the two teams at the New Lands Stadium in Cape Town from January 11, in which the reputation of both teams will be tarnished. Because the winning team on the Cape Town field is going to capture the series. But before this crucial match, there is bad news for the India team. In the last Test of the series, there is suspense about the game of the Indian fast pitcher, Mohammad Siraj. Siraj was injured during the second test.

According to India’s head coach Rahul Dravid, Siraj is recovering from a hamstring injury. However, we cannot say with certainty that he will be available for the final test to be played in Cape Town from January 11. Dravid said: “Siraj is not fully fit yet. We are constantly monitoring his physical condition. In the next 4 days it will be known how fit he is. Only if Siraj is fully fit can he play in the Cape Town event. “
Strategy differences due to Siraj’s injury
Praising Siraj, Dravid said: “He was not completely fit even in the first innings of the second Test. Despite that, he bounced.” “We couldn’t make the most of it, so our strategy went a bit wrong in the second test,” he said. Before the Cape Town test, the problem for the Indian team is not only Siraj’s injury, but also Hanuma Vihari’s injury. Dravid said that so far his injuries have not been discussed with the physio. So he can’t tell how bad Hanuma’s injury is.
Decisive fight in Cape Town!
Johannesburg was the stronghold of Team India in South Africa. The Indian team had not lost a single match on the ground before the recent defeat at the hands of the hosts with seven wickets in hand. After this defeat, it has become difficult for the Indian team to win the first test series in South Africa. In fact, the third Test is in Cape Town, where India’s record is poor. India has lost 3 of the last 5 games played in Cape Town. 2 games have been drawn. In other words, India has not won a single match here. This means that if India wants to win the first Test Series in South Africa, the Indian team will have to change the history of Cape Town.
