Indian cricket team who is set to play the second Test match against South Africa on January 13 at SuperSport Park, Centurion, visited the India House at Johannesburg on Thursday.
The Indian cricket governing body BCCI posted some pictures of the visit where the team were seen enjoying in the semi-formal attire and tweeted “#TeamIndia visit India House at Johannesburg". Coach Ravi Shastri and players Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Umesh Yadav, Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were present at the India house, all well dressed.
Shikhar Dhawan also posted a picture on Twitter with the team lads and captioned it, “A good outing with the guys at the High Commissioner's house in Johannesburg! Great to see everyone in the new formal outfits”.
India suffered a 72-run loss in the first away Test after a great home season and their batting was heavily criticized following the loss to South Africa at Cape Town, the team management is all set to make changes.
"Losing wickets in bunches is something we have to plug in. We were in the game for the three days and it was a wonderful match to be part of. We would have taken that if someone told 208 would be the target," Kohli said after the first match defeat.
