India's miserable track record in South Africa – where the team has won only three Tests out of 20 and have never recorded a series win – will be the key motivating factor for India this time around according to the vice-captain for the series KL Rahul. India conceded the opening two Tests in 2018 but registered a memorable win in Johannesburg to end the tour 2-1. With Rohit Sharma ruled out of the Test series because of a hamstring injury, Mayank Agarwal will partner with Rahul to open the innings.
