South Africa vs India 3rd test, weather forecast: rain to play spoilers on day 1 in Cape Town?


South Africa vs India 3rd test, Cape Town weather report: South Africa rarely loses in Newlands, but India has made a habit of breaking through the citadels.

The weather will play a central role in the third Test between South Africa and India. According to the South African Weather Service, the forecast for the first session on Day 1 does not look very good. The forecast suggests partly cloudy weather conditions. Showers are forecast for Tuesday morning. However, the South African Weather Service is forecasting favorable weather conditions for the remainder of the five days.

With Virat Kohli returning to form at the helm, India will try to do everything against South Africa in the series final at the Newlands. The record attests: South Africa has lost just five of its 34 games here since its readmission.

The extra bounce that the surface stimulates along with the lateral movement it provides in the first session has supercharged their past rhythms as well as the contemporary heir to their mantle, Kagiso Rabada. Against India they have been invulnerable here, beating them in three of the five duels.

If Virat Kohli manages to win the series against South Africa, his life as captain of India will come full circle.

It is in Cape Town, where four years ago, Virat Kohli set out to conquer the world; this is where Jasprit Bumrah made his trial debut four years ago; that’s where India came close to securing its first series victory in South Africa twice.
