Since last year’s SA vs IND 3rd test match is going on in which team India won first and lose the second match, now its time of 3rd test match.
Virat Kohli is not part of a team in the 2nd test match and that’s why KL Rahul lead team India but in the 3rd test match, Captain Kohli is back.
Indian Test team captain Virat Kohli could not play the second test match due to back stiffness.
At the same time, Mohammad Siraj was also injured during the second test match. Now in such a situation, the question is whether Siraj and Kohli will be part of the third test match.
In the second test match, Hanuma Vihari becomes part of the Playing XI due to the absence of Kohli but now he is ready for 3rd test match then Hanuma Vihari is out of the team.
Not only this the reason but his performance play a vital role He scored 20 runs in the first innings of the Johannesburg Test and 40 not out in the second innings.
While Rahane and Pujara played half-centuries to stake their claim for the third Test. In the second innings, Pujara scored 53 while Rahane scored a half-century of 58 runs.
As we know if Hanuma plays well in the 3rd test match then the choice is made between three players, Rahane, Pujara, and Hanuma.
The poor form of Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara has become a matter of concern for the team management in this regard Captain Kohli Said
Change cannot be imposed. The players should not put us in complicated situations.
Before the Cape Town Test match, Indian Test team captain Virat Kohli gave a fitness update of himself and Mohammad Siraj.
Siraj was injured during the second test match. In such a situation, either Ishant Sharma or Umesh Yadav can get a chance in the Cape Town Test match.
He said that he is fully fit to play the third test match, while Mohammad Siraj is not fit. Kohli said
“I am fit and I will play. As far as Mohammad Siraj is concerned, he is not completely fit.
