Dravid’s tryst with this ground doesn’t end with a ton. When he returned for the 2006 series as a captain of the Indian team, India registered its first-ever test win in South Africa on this very ground. India won the match by 123 Runs.

For Virat Kohli: Like coach Rahul Dravid, even captain Virat Kohli has a very happy memory about this ground. Kohli’s dream run overseas started with a win at Wanderers in 2018 and the team is now on the cusp of history at its favoured venue.

Can India beat South Africa at Wanderers this time? Not only the Wanderers is India’s fort in the overseas conditions – India also has a huge upper hand now in the series after winning at Centurion.

India leads the 3 match test series 1-0 & South Africa after Quinton De Kock’s retirement will be a further depleted unit.

It’s clear, India will start as favourite at the Wanderers test & can easily create a history of winning their 1st series in South Africa on its 8th attempt.
