The New Head Coach of the Indian Team, Rahul Dravid, Starts off his Coaching journey with back-to-back wins. The dedication Dravid has for the Indian team is exceptional.

Players to Look Forward – India
- Rohit Sharma is a classy batsman! We also know what he is capable of. The Right-Handed Calm minded batsman has Evolved exceptionally well in recent years. Everyone doubted that if he could play the Test Format. But he proved everyone wrong. Rohit made his test debut in 2013 and proved everyone wrong. Till Date, he played around 43 Matches, and in 74 Innings, he scored 3047 Runs with an Average of (46.9) in his 74 Innings, he scored 8 Centuries and 14 Half Centuries. Rohit Sharma is a key player with many expectations on his back to play his best of innings in the India Tour of South Africa Test Series.
- Virat Kholi, “The Best Batsman in the World,” is always the most crucial player to keep an Eye for the Proteas – South Africa. Currently, Virat is not in his best of forms; he failed to score most runs this year, as he did and contributed in the previous years. India Fans must be expecting Virat Kholi to achieve his rhythm and score tons of centuries and valuable runs in the South Africa Skeaty and Swinging Wickets.
- R Ashwin Would be a key spinner in the Test Matches. We have seen him do well in the T20 World cup and the recent Tests against the Kiwis. He was Economical, bowling in the right areas and picking up most wickets. He Becomes the First Bowlers this year to reach 50 wickets in Tests.
- The Right Arm Fast Bowler Ishant Sharma would be the key Indian Fast Bowlers to dismiss the Proteas Top Order. Ishant can swing the ball in and out of the Right Handers. Surely he would emerge as one of the Highest Wicket Taker Bowler in the India vs. South Africa Series.
- Test cricket is all about retaining your patience and playing with a Calm Mind. Hence Pujara is a master of playing defensive shots, holding his nerves, and not giving up his wicket. Also, it would be a tough challenge for him to play in the South Africa Swinging Pitches. But surely we know how exceptional he is with the Bat. He would not lead his team down and would love to contribute by scoring runs in the Tour.
