India may finally end their 31-year wait. Unfortunately, Mohammed Shami won’t be able to be a part of the team as he is healing from an ankle injury. Additionally, Ishan Kishan has also been cut from the team before the first Test match against SA. Wasim Jaffer asked on X(formerly known as Twitter) before the first Test between India and South Africa that,
“Shami will be missed big time in SA Tests, but it’s a great opportunity for Prasidh & Mukesh to show that they’re the future of Indian fast bowling. Can’t ask for a better place to bowl than South Africa. Who are you picking as the third seamer between these two?”
