Team India unwinds in South Africa ahead of Boxing Day Test

Team India relished a day off in South Africa on Sunday, gearing up for the upcoming Boxing Day Test at SuperSport Park in Centurion on December 26.

A snapshot shared on X captured the team posing at what seemed to be the entrance of a zoo. The group included key figures such as India captain Rohit Sharma accompanied by his family, Ritika Sajdeh and Samaira Sharma, alongside Shreyas Iyer, Jasprit Bumrah, and coaches Rahul Dravid, Paras Mhambrey, and Vikram Rathour, among others.

The return of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Jasprit Bumrah to the team followed an extended break post the World Cup. During their absence, Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul led the Men in Blue in a T20I series (resulting in a 1-1 draw) and an ODI series (won 2-1) in South Africa.

Intending to secure their first Test series victory in South Africa, the team is looking forward to redeeming themselves after a 1-2 loss in the previous tour, despite clinching victory in the opening Test in the Rainbow Nation during the 2021-22 season.
