India and South Africa will lock horns in the third and final Test, beginning Tuesday at Cape Town. The series stands level at 1-1 and there is everything to play for in the series decider.
India Test skipper Virat Kohli on Monday confirmed that he is ‘absolutely fit’ to play the third Test against South Africa which is scheduled to begin from January 11 in Cape Town. However, Kohli also said that pacer Mohammed Siraj is not match-ready as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury which he had incurred during the second Test.
“I’m absolutely fit. Siraj is still recovering, I don’t think he’s match ready yet and I don’t think we can take the risk of playing a pacer who isn’t 110% fit,” Kohli said during a press conference.
