Team India will play the first test match against South Africa from 26 December. This series is going to be very important for the Indian team. South Africa is the only team on whose soil Team India has not won any Test series till date. South Africa’s pitch is known for swing, speed and bounce. Team India’s batsmen struggle a lot here.

India had defeated South Africa on its own soil in 1996 itself, but till date we have not been able to win the Test series on African soil.

Test matches won in South Africa for the first time in 2006
In 2006, under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid, Team India won the first Test match on the soil of South Africa. The hero of this match was Sreesanth. He troubled the South African batsmen a lot with his lethal bowling. In this test match, Sreesanth took 8 wickets and was also made man of the match. In the first innings, Sreesanth took 5 wickets for 40 runs.

Win Test Series for the first time in 2018-19 on Australian soil
Australia was defeated by Team India on Indian soil in the Test series in 1979 itself, but for the first time on the soil of Kangaroos, we won the series in 2018-19. Virat Kohli became the first captain to win a series in Australia. Cheteshwar Pujara’s bat spoke fiercely in this series.

He scored 521 runs in four Tests at an average of 74.43. At the same time, Jasprit Bumrah took 21 wickets in 4 Tests.

Defeated Pakistan on their soil for the first time in 2004
The 2004 tour of Pakistan was memorable for Team India. The team won the ODI as well as the Test series. This was the first time under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly that the Indian team had won a Test series on Pakistani soil.

This tour was also very memorable for Virender Sehwag. He became the first batsman to score a triple century in Test matches for India.

Story of 1st test series win in West Indies
In 1971, India played a five-match Test series in the West Indies. There was not much expectations from Team India on this tour. The Indian captain was Ajit Wadekar. India won the second test match of the series played in Port of Spain by 7 wickets.

It was also India’s first Test win on West Indies soil. The rest of the series ended in draws and India won the first series in the West Indies by 1-0.

Wadekar also made Team India champion in England
The year of 1971 was very good for Team India. This year, we won the Test series for the first time on the soil of England after the West Indies. Ajit Wadekar was the captain of the Indian team on this tour as well. Three Test matches were to be played in this series. The first two of these matches were drawn.

The Indian team won the third test at The Oval. Chandrashekhar bowled amazingly in this test match. He took six wickets for 38 runs. England’s second innings was reduced to 101 runs. India needed only 173 runs to win their first series in England. Indian team won the match by 4 wickets.

Let us tell you, for the first time in Sri Lanka, India won the Test series in 1993, New Zealand in 1967 and Bangladesh in 2000.
