The cricket teams of India and South Africa arrived on Tuesday for the third and final Test, beginning on April 11 at Green Park stadium.

Both the teams were accorded a traditional welcome at a city hotel where Indian players were welcomed by putting a 'tilak' on the forehand.

Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh was seen interacting with the South African players as they entered the hotel.

Local heroes Mohammed Kaif, who made it to the team as a replacement of injured Sachin Tendulkar, and leg-spinner Piyush Chawla also interacted with the hotel staff.

Pacer Ishant Sharma and off-spinner Romesh Powar had arrived ahead of their teammates from New Delhi.
