Focus on ICC Test Championship as India and SA collide
SA have named three newcomers in the Test team to face India.
"All three newcomers to the Test side have more than earned their spurs through impressive performances in last season's Four-Day Franchise competition," Corrie van Zyl said.
With the ICC Test Championship on, it will be a massive moment for both teams to go and give a strong account of themselves.
