Ranchi, Oct 19, Sat – Oct 23, Wed at 09:30 AM IST
After Vishakhapatnam and Pune, it’s time for the Ranchi where team India will look to wrap up the series by 3-0 against the ill-fated Proteas side. The third and final test of the series is scheduled to be played at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi from tomorrow.
South Africa’s woes, who have already surrendered the series by 2-0, doesn’t look to end in the near future. While they already suffered the loss of lead spinner Keshav Maharaj to an injury, the opening batsman Aiden Markram has also been ruled out of the Ranchi Test.
The visiting side is still not able to collect what’s missing out? Is it the batting? Is it bowling? Or is it the toss? Proteas skipper Faf Du Plessis has lost nine tosses in a row in the subcontinent and there are chances that he might not turn up at the toss tomorrow at Ranchi.
On the other hand, India will have a solo aim of whitewashing Proteas by 3-0 in Ranchi after the record-breaking series win in Pune.
