Cape Town: One big plus for India heading into the third and final Test at Cape Town is the return of regular skipper Virat Kohli. The Indian captain who missed out on the Johannesburg Test due to an upper-back spasm would be speaking to the media on the eve of the Cape Town Test. Kohli would be well aware of the fact that he would be bombarded with difficult questions as his form with the bat has not been up to the mark.

So, what are the things Kohli could be asked at the presser today?

He could well be asked the state the reason for his absence from the pre-match pressers. He was not there for the one at Centurion and Johannesburg. They were attended by coach Rahul Dravid.

Without a doubt, he would be asked about Mohammed Siraj’s fitness. The pacer pulled his hamstring at the Wanderers. If Siraj is not available, who replaces him would be something the press would be curious to know.

Ajinkya Rahane or Hanuma Vihari – who would Kohli replace in the XI? This would be another question on the minds of the reporters. A TOI report suggests that Vihari would make way for Kohli.

After their heroics in Australia and England, Team India would like to script history in South Africa. The Indian team has the opportunity to win their maiden Test series on SA soil.

What does not work in India’s favour is the fact that they have never won a Test at the Newlands, Cape Town.
