India vs South Africa 2019, 1st Test – Toss Report
Brimming with confidence, Team India will be eyeing a solid start to the Test series when they take on South Africa in the first Test. The Virat Kohli-led side blew away West Indies in their previous Test assignment and are firm favourites to beat the Proteas. India have never lost a Test series at home under Kohli and will be eyeing to further extend that run.
South Africa will have their task cut out against the formidable hosts. The last time the Proteas played a Test series in India, they were thrashed 3-0. And if the tourists do not play spin well, they can lose this series too. The series will kick-start South Africa’s campaign in the ICC World Test Championship and they could not have asked for a tougher assignment.
