smiley10Welcome to all my cricket fans and friends to watch and discuss the 3rd Test between India and South Africa.smiley10 

Sportsmanship isn't about criticizing players, it's about appreciating and supporting their hard work amidst success and failures!!!

Virat Kohli and Dean Elgar

The India vs South Africa 3rd Test match will take place at the Newlands in Cape Town within 6 hours from now.

India Test captain Virat Kohli is all set to return as the visitors will aim for their first-ever Test series win in South Africa. They had defeated the hosts by 113 runs last month to script their maiden victory in Centurion before Dean Elgar's men fought back valiantly to win in Johannesburg by seven wickets making the third Test a series decider!!

The final Test of the three-match series will be played at the Newlands in Cape Town, which remains one of their most successful venues in the format.  The South African side has played the most number of Tests at this venue, with their maiden appearance back in 1889, and recorded the most number of wins as well, with a win-loss ratio of 1.238. India, on the other hand, has played five Tests in Cape Town - losing thrice while two ended in a draw. 

 The third Test is scheduled to be played here from January 11-15. Seeking to win their first-ever series on South African soil, India began the rubber on a rousing note, winning the opener at Centurion by 113 runs before succumbing to a seven-wicket defeat in the second Test at Johannesburg.

Virat Kohli

India Test captain Virat Kohli hit the nets on Sunday and if his cover drives and off drives were any indications, he could return for the decisive third match against South Africa after missing the second game due to a back spasm. 

So far, KL Rahul is the top run-getter for India in the two Tests. The right-handed batsman has scored 204 runs in 4 innings so far. In bowling, Mohammed Shami is Indiaโ€™s highest wicket-taker with 11 wickets in 2 Tests.

After the defeat in IND vs SA 2nd Test, India takes the 4th spot in ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 points table. With 4 wins, 2 losses, and 2 draws, India has a PCT of 55.21 after playing 8 games. India has most 53 points.
