Indian team has landed in South Africa for a long tour. They will be facing some tough challenges ahead. But before they play their first Test on January 5 against Proteas, Virat Kohli-led India has got invited to a new and unexpected challenge.

The official Twitter page of South African Tourism tweeted to Kohli to try shark-cage diving in Hermanus, which is 120.6 kilometers away from Cape Town, the venue of the first Test.

The tweet was retweeted by Cricket South Africa's (CSA) official handle.

"Hey @imVKohli we're looking forward to some nail-biting Cricket. Before the on-field action begins, how about some off-beat adventure with the team! Come, seek the adrenaline rush of shark-cage diving in Hermanus. Are the men in blue up for the challenge," South African Tourism's Twitter handle wrote.

According to Hermanus Tourism's website, tourists have more than 300 activities to do including whale watching and shark-cage diving.

"More than 300 activities include whale watching, shark-cage diving in Walker Bay, abseiling, treetop tours, quad biking and a 27 hole Hermanus golf course. Discover our wine route, art route, specialty shops and pamper boutiques."

Indian team is currently sweating it out in the nets before the first Test. India will feel the heat as the hosts will be playing a full strength side. Faf du Plessis who had pulled out of 4-day Test against Zimbabwe will be available for the first encounter at Cape Town.
