The cricketing world is set for an exhilarating bout as India gears up to face South Africa in the 1st Test at SuperSport Park in Centurion, commencing on Tuesday, December 26.

Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India holds the top spot on the WTC points table with an impressive Points Percentage System (PCT) of 66.67. Bolstered by the return of key players like Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, the Indian squad aims to sustain its high-performance levels. Having clinched series victories in previous cycles, they aspire to continue their dominance in the test arena.

South Africa, welcoming back their pace-bowling trio of Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Gerald Coetzee, are keen to utilize their strengths. The return of these formidable pacers adds depth to their bowling unit, posing a significant threat to the Indian batting order.
