In the third match of the Test series between India and South Africa, South Africa’s hold has strengthened. On the fourth day of the match, the African team needs 111 runs to win, with eight wickets left. The record of this ground is also in favor of Africa. The target of 200 plus runs has been successfully chased in the fourth innings of a Test match three times at the Cape Town ground and twice by South Africa. The last time the African team successfully chased down the target of 236 runs against Australia was in 2011.

In the second match of this series too, South Africa scored 243 runs in the fourth innings at the loss of three wickets. This will greatly boost the confidence of the African team. However, in this innings, Africa captain Dean Elgar scored an unbeaten 96. India got him out in the third test. In such a situation, African batsmen can make mistakes under pressure. However, with eight wickets in hand, scoring 111 would not be a difficult task.

Africa has home ground advantage

In this match, Africa will also get the advantage of home ground. The South African batsmen lack experience, but they are well aware of these conditions. Because of this, he has had less trouble than the Indian players and in the second match, Pietersen and Bavuma also scored easily. Pietersen is also playing in this innings with a half-century, while Bavuma is yet to come out to bat.

What is the history of the field

The target of 200 plus runs has been successfully chased in this ground three times. First in 2002, Australia won the match against Africa by scoring 334 runs for the loss of six wickets. After this, South Africa chased 211 runs against India in 2007 and won the match by five wickets. At the same time, in 2011, the African team won against Australia by scoring 236 runs for the loss of two wickets. Since then, the target of more than 200 runs has not been chased at this ground.
