Why did the Indian team flop in South Africa?

IND vs SA: The 3-match Test series being played between India and South Africa has now come to an end. South Africa beat India by 7 wickets at Newlands Ground in Cape Town to take the series 2-1. With this, India’s dream of winning the Test series on South African soil has once again remained incomplete.

Now the question arises that due to which reasons Team India has failed to win this series. So let’s look at some of the main reasons due to which Team India has once again failed to win the series in South Africa.

1) frequent middle order flops

The main reason for India losing this Test series has been the failure of their middle order. Let us tell you that Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane play a very important role in the batting of the Indian team in Tests.

The average of these two batsmen in this series has been around 25. Which shows how bad the two very experienced batsmen of the team are running. With this, Pujara and Rahane have scored only one half-century in this series after playing 6-6 innings.

The continuous flop of the middle order in South Africa has cost India very dearly. If these two batsmen were in their form, then Team India would have been able to give more runs to South Africa in Cape Town including Johannesburg.
