Can India end a 25-year wait in South Africa?IANS

On January 5, 2018, the first Test between South Africa and India will get under way in Cape Town. Virat Kohli-led team will look to end a 25-year wait in the "Rainbow Nation".

It was in December 1992 that India went to South Africa for their maiden tour. The first-ever Test was in Port Elizabeth from December 26, 1992. Mohammad Azharuddin and Kepler Wessels were the captains.

South Africa won the two-match rubber 1-0 after winning the opening game. The second contest ended in a draw in Cape Town.

After six tours to South Africa, India are still searching for their maiden Test series win in the country. Will that wait finally end in 2018?
