Indian cricket team look for winning start against South Africa in Cape Town
After registering nine consecutive Test series victories since 2015, Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team will be tested in overseas conditions when they aim to overcome a formidable South Africa in the first of three match series in Cape Town. India maintained their Test series winning streak since defeating Sri Lanka 2-1 in their away series. The top ranked side in the longest format had also defeated South Africa on their own turf in the 2015-16 Freedom Trophy series. However, India have not won against the Proteas on South African soil since 1992 -- losing four and drawing one in 2010-11.
