In 2021, Rohit has undoubtedly been India’s best batter. He scored two fifty-plus scores in Australia and then followed it by being the highest run-scorer for India against England in the Test series played in India early this year.

But the overseas series in England established Rohit Sharma as a test batter. He consistently gave team India a good start along with KL Rahul. Also, Rohit’s hundred at the Oval is the highlight of his Test career. He ended up as India’s leading run-scorer in this series as well.

Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami also returned to the nets at the National Cricket Academy where he can be seen getting a few overs under his belt. He was rested from the recently-concluded home series against New Zealand along with fellow pacer Jasprit Bumrah. Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul have also returned to the Test squad. However, Jadeja, Gill, and Axar have been ruled out due to injuries.

The Indian team is yet to beat South Africa in South Africa in Test matches. In fact, it is the only frontier left for the Indian test team which is unconquered. Virat and his men would like to establish their dominance and prove that they truly are the best traveling team.
