The Test series between India and South Africa will commence in less than a week’s time from today and the excitement is at an all time high. Team India’s record against South Africa in their home has not been very great but with the current form that the Blues are in, anything is possible and they would definitely look to tweak the tally a bit with a phenomenal performance.
The first test between the two sides starts on 26th December. Cricket analysts have started making their prediction and giving their opinions about the upcoming series and the majority have their money on Team India. However, it will not be an easy task for Virat Kohli and his men as the South African conditions are often very tricky.
Moreover, the weather conditions will not at all be in Team India’s favour. As per the weather reports of the Weather Channel and AccuWeather, rain will play spoilsport on the first two days of the first test – something that no test cricket fan likes to see. However, it will be a good omen for South Africa as they clearly have the weaker team on paper.
The first two days will be covered with clouds and there will be thunderstorms. The chances of it raining are as much as 60%. It is very difficult to win a test match if the first two days are washed out by rain.
It can also be inferred that the pitch will favour the pacers more than the spinners as it has a greenish nature on it. that can be expected as South Africa’s pace attack is terrific.
