Speaking to CricketNext, a source in the team management said the idea was to switch off for a couple of days and come back stronger in the third Test at the Wanderers where the South Africans are looking to go for a clean sweep while Virat Kohli and his boys will be playing for pride.

Team India have reached Johannesburg ahead of the third and final Test match against South Africa.

With longer break period between the games, the team decided to relax and soak in the beauty of South Africa.

The team visited Kruger national park and also Suncity in Johannesburg to take their mind off the game.

Speaking to CricketNext, a source in the team management said the idea was to switch off for a couple of days and come back stronger in the third Test at the Wanderers where the South Africans are looking to go for a clean sweep while Virat Kohli and his boys will be playing for pride.

"As you know, the team did well in patches and the results did not come in India's favour. So, it was felt that the boys should just switch off and freshen up before they hit the ground running before the third one. While some of the boys have gone to Kruger National Park, some are in Sun City. Training starts again on Sunday as the boys want to finish on a high after putting up some quality performances," he said.
