Cape Town - India may be the top ranked side in Test cricket, but their record in South Africa over the past 25 years is nothing short of woeful.
Virat Kohli and his men arrive in South Africa on Friday ahead of their three-match Test series, and the Proteas can take comfort in the knowledge that India have never won a Test series in this country.
With Kohli considered one of the greats of the modern game, this will be a box that he desperately wants to tick.
But a trip down memory lane suggests that this will be a tough assignment for the Indians.
Since 1992, they have won just two of the 17 Tests they have played in South Africa.
Of the six Test series between the sides on South African soil, the hosts have won five with a 1-1 draw back in the 2010/11 season India's best return.
The reason for the Proteas' dominance over the years has had a lot to do with their pace bowling attack. More often than not, green and seam-friendly wickets are prepared and India's batsmen have struggled.
The last time the sides met in Test cricket was in 2015/16, when India were at home and unashamedly prepared spin-friendly tracks as they beat the Proteas 3-0 in a four-match series.
But, as the records below suggest, home ground advantage means a lot when these sides play.
