It is learnt that South Africa and Indian players have already headed to their respective hotel rooms. However, surprisingly, India’s team hotel is nearer to the stadium while Faf du Plessis-led side’s hotel is 13 kilometres away from the stadium. Despite that, the visitors haven’t complained regarding the issue.
Coming to the match, the hosts are looking to complete a whitewash of the tourists, after emphatic victories in the first two clashes. Virat Kohli’s men took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series with an innings victory in Pune to continue The Proteas’ misery.
