âUnfortunately Virat had a spasm in his upper back and I hope he recovers for the next test. It is every Indian player’s dream to be captain of his country. Truly honored and eager to take on this We have had some good wins here and I hope we will look to build on that momentum, âsaid KL Rahul during the draw.
âWe performed really well as a team and we are really excited about this game,â added Rahul.
Speaking of the ongoing Ind vs SA contest, Shardul Thakur chose an initial five-wicket transport to stun the South African hosts, limiting them to 229 on Day 2.
South Africa leads India by 27 points after the end of its first innings. Beating first after winning the draw, India was eliminated for a paltry 202.
