India’s dream to win a Test series in South Africa still remains an unfinished business. A loss in the third Test match in Cape Town meant that India lost the three-match Test series 2-1. After a brilliant win at Centurion, India lost back to back Test matches in Johannesburg and Cape Town to lose the series. Both teams now take on each other in a three-match ODI series between January 19-23.

The match had a few controversial moments that made it one of the most eventful white-ball games in recent times. Dean Elgar’s controversial DRS call was one of the many talking points from the Test match and the series overall.

Meanwhile, in this article, we will take a look at the Indian captains with the most Test losses in South Africa. The list includes a few elite names.

The current Indian skipper is topping the list with three losses. Two of them came in this series. Though he found some form with the bat, he found no luck at winning Test matches in South Africa. The win in the first Test came under him. However, the loss in Cape Town came as a big blow to the team. This Virat Kohli-led side was expected to win the series against the hosts who certainly had a batting line-up with very little experience.

However, it was their bowlers who made up for the inexperience in the batting order. The same was acknowledged by skipper Dean Elgar as well in his post-match pressers.
