Dean Elgar on Virat Kohli: The third and last match of the Test series between India and South Africa (Ind vs SA) will be played in Cape Town from Tuesday. The three-match series is tied at 1-1. If Team India wins this match, then it will capture the Test series in South Africa for the first time. Before this match, South Africa captain Dean Elgar has given a statement on Indian captain Virat Kohli. The return of Kohli in the third Test will strengthen the Indian team.
Please tell that Kohli did not play in the Johannesburg Test. Regarding this, Elgar said that Team India had missed its regular captain Kohli. Dean Elgar said that Virat Kohli brings a different kind of pace to the game. I don’t think I missed them. But, potentially his team must have missed him from the captaincy and perhaps the strategy point of view.
Elgar further said that Kohli is a world-class player and one of the experienced players in his team. His name speaks for itself and he is one of the more respected cricketer players around. So I will not say that I missed him. But it doesn’t matter who is playing against whom. As a team, we need to focus on ourselves.
‘There will be no big change in the team’
Dean Elgar while talking about the fitness of his players said that all the players are fit and there will be no major change in the playing XI in the final Test. He said that I do not think there is any problem regarding the fitness of the players. Obviously, when you play in a series, there are always some flaws, especially Test cricket pushes your body to a limit. I don’t see much change in the team. We will try to keep the team stable. Because in big series and big match, playing 11 is necessary to remain stable.
