The first Test will begin January 5, at Cape Town. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a> and co. will hope to end the drought in South Africa, where they have not won a single Test series since their first tour in 1992. Amidst all this, Cricket South Africa (CSA) renamed the three-match Test series between India and South Africa as Freedom Series last month. The tour was originally labelled as Friendship Series. <p></p> <p></p>The earlier series name was South Africa s gratitude of sorts towards India s effort in ending their sporting isolation in 1991 after 21 years. With the aim to celebrate the Freedom that the country received, South Africa have released a promotional video that focuses on shared history between the two countries. The video also celebrates South Africa s re-entry into international cricket. <p></p> <p></p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VGTVaLmP7WI" height="355" width="628" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> <p></p> <p></p>On the other hand, keeping in mind India s record in South Africa, <i>Sony Sports Network</i>, who will broadcast the series in India, came up with a promotional campaign <i>hisaab 25 saal ka</i> (payback for 25 years). <p></p> <p></p>The campaign was meant to induce revenge among Indian cricket fans. The commercial showed clips of Sachin Tendulkar walking off after being dismissed. The voiceover in the commercial says <i>Badla lenge bhagwaan ke apmaan ka</i> (we will avenge the insult to our God). Unfortunately, it did not have much impact. <p></p> <p></p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/rq_lCQSfinE" height="355" width="628" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> <p></p> <p></p>Ahead of the first Test, a specially designed trophy will also commemorate the landmark series.
