Ind vs SA, 3rd Test: Hosts look to trap Proteas in spin web

New Delhi: Third and crucial match of the Mahatma Gandhi-Nelson Mandela Series between India and South Africa starts from Wednesday in Nagpur.

Pressure would certainly be on the visitors, as they are already trailing 1-0 in the four-match series.

Thus far in the series, Proteas looked quite vulnerable while facing India tweakers.

Spin trio of – Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Amit Mishra – have dictated terms so far in the five-day format.

If premier Indian spinner Ashwin has scalped 12 wickets, then, Jadeja too is right up there, with equal number of wickets.

Nagpur track is also giving the impression that it's going to be a turning wicket. And in such a scenario, one can expect Indian spin troika to hog the lime light once again.
