A day after India lost yet another Test series in South Africa, Virat Kohli stepped down as captain of the Test team.

Former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Saba Karim on Saturday backed the Indian team to beat South Africa in the upcoming three-match Test series. The first match is scheduled to be played on December 26 and Saba feels that it is the golden opportunity for the sub-continent team to win its maiden Test series against the Proteas.

South Africa is the only country India are yet to win a red-ball series.

Speaking to Sports Tiger, he predicted that India are likely to win the Test series.

“Either 2-0 or 2-1 (in Tests). In ODI we are anyway a far superior side,” he said.

India have the players who can script history in the rainbow nation.

“It is immensely strong (bench strength) and proof of that was shown by them in Australia. We won the fourth Test without I think five or six of our regular players. That shows the kind of strength that India have got in our reserves. And I expect the same this time around and it is our golden opportunity for us as well have an experienced set up. Plus we have some potentially exciting youngsters who are coming through to the team. It will be an ideal combination for us to do well in South Africa,” he explained.
