South Africa made amends for a disastrous World Cup 2019 campaign with a strong show in the Twenty 20 Internationals against India, drawing the series level. The visitors would look to take confidence from the performances but the challenge of 5-day cricket is significant compared to the shortest format.
India, on the other hand, would look to take their winning juggernaut forward. The hosts have won all of their last ten test series on home turf and would look to make it eleven in a row.
