  • Team India has never defeated South Africa at Newlands, Capetown. The closest they have come is to draw the match- twice, lost thrice. They had lost the previous match at Capetown by 72 runs
  • Kagiso Rabada has taken 35 wickets in 6 matches at the venue. Virat Kohli & needs to be vigilant against the danger. He has already troubled India at Centurion & Johannesburg
  • SA captain Dean Elgar is another obstacle after his match-winning knock at Johannesburg that put Proteas back in the contest. He has amassed 708 runs in 10 Tests at the venue which features a couple of tons & 3 half-centuries.
  • India in 2021 won at the venues where they have never won earlier – the Gabba in Brisbane, Oval & the Centurion. Can they overcome their final hurdle?
  • This is a golden chance for India to win their first-ever test series in South Africa since the rivalry began in 1991 (3 decades). A draw would level captain Virat Kohli with MS Dhoni who had drawn to SA in their backyard in the 2011 Test series
