IND vs SA Match Preview India tour of South Africa 3rd Test:

The 3-match Test series currently stands level at 1-1, and the 3rd Test at Cape Town is set to be a decider. India has never won a Test series in South Africa ever. 

India won the 1st Test at Centurion while South Africa made a comeback to win their first Test game against India at Johannesburg in the second Test of the series. India has never won a Test match at Cape Town before and would be desperate to breach this fortress too.

Ordinary batting in the first innings of the second Test, followed by ordinary bowling in the second innings caused India the second Test. India will be hoping to work on their shortcomings and come in well prepared for the 3rd and final Test. Test skipper Virat Kohli will be back in the side for this game, and it would be a huge boost for the Indian side. 

Dean Elgar has been formidable for the Proteas in the batting department, the batter scoring a tough 77 in the first Test, followed by a match-winning 96 in the second Test. He will be eying another crucial contribution with the bat to end the Test series on a high note here. In the bowling department, Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen are having a terrific time with the ball.
