This time around, India has a practical chance of registering a Test series win in South Africa citing the inexperience in Proteas’ batting line-up and their bowling unit also received a setback on Monday when Anrich Nortje was ruled out of the three-match series. Additionally, Quinton de Kock is expected to miss the last couple of Tests as he will be going on paternity leave.
