India’s tour of South Africa: Indian team will fly to Cape Town on Sunday, players will not attend New Year celebrations due to security reasons – Bollywood Keeda

After the first Test ends in three days, the Indian players took part in an optional practice session on Saturday and will then fly to Cape Town on Sunday. With this, all the players of India A will leave for India on Saturday.

India’s tour of South Africa: Rinku Singh, who was an unofficial member of the Indian team for the first Test, will also return home with India-A. Rinku, who played as a fielder in the Centurion Test, was included due to inadequacy in the strength of the Indian Test team, which was reduced from 16 to 14 after Ruturaj Gaikwad was dropped. Along with Ruturaj, fast bowler Mohammed Shami was also dropped from the South Africa tour.

Let us tell you that with the inclusion of Abhimanyu Easwaran, who was in the India-A and South Africa-A matches till Friday, and Avesh Khan, who replaced Shami, there will be enough cover for any emergency on the field for the second and final Test in Cape Town. Is covered. Easwaran and Avesh have joined the team in Johannesburg. He was unavailable for the Johannesburg Test due to back stiffness but now he is fully fit and will be available for selection for the Cape Town Test starting from January 3. Star all-rounder Jadeja is an important part of the team and his return will give strength to the Indian team in batting and bowling. However, Shardul Thakur suffered a shoulder injury during the practice session on Saturday and his scan has not been done at present.

It is noteworthy that the New Year celebrations for the Indian players in South Africa are going to be very dull. After losing the first Test in Centurion, there is obviously no enthusiasm in the camp, but more than that, the Indian team has been advised to be careful while going out. This advisory is in view of security concerns in South African cities, where street crimes such as robbery, theft, snatching and pick-pocketing are common. A player of the Indian team said that it is not serious but we will have to take normal safety precautions as always. As a result, no players will attend the year-end celebrations in Cape Town as a precaution. However, Cape Town is a relatively safe city compared to other places in South Africa.
