  • Ravi Shastri's message to BCCI: Need more practice days on overseas tours

This was also the period when India won their first Test in South Africa in 2006-07 and drew their first series 1-1 the next time they were there in 2010-11. "Shami is a good bowler". Barring the first innings at Cape Town where they leaked 40 runs more that they should have. Didn't we lose in India when we had the best 11 there? He sparkled with a 153 in the second Test but, as it used to happen during Sachin Tendulkar's heyday in the 1990s, that proved to be a fine but futile effort in a lost cause.

"He will fit into India's overseas plans very well though, because he bowls that away-swinging line". Famously known for his breathtaking cover drives, the ferocious Indian batsman is also the 31st player to bag 900 points in the immensely followed cricket rankings for cricketers which are based on their recent performances. "We are not here to moan about the tracks because like I said at the start of the game both teams play on the same surface", Shastri said. Ishant Sharma replaced him in the penultimate Test at Centurion. In tough conditions like these, where there is not much between the two teams, you can not afford to give away wickets like that.

"We failed to get a good partnership and take lead". "He can not, because he bowls an incoming delivery into the bat". When you take 20 wickets you have a chance to win. "Even Pandya is your future (if he adds a little pace)". The India coach said on overseas tours, a team is forced to select their playing XI keeping conditions in mind. And that's because the former South Africa bowling spearhead enjoys De Villiers's brand of artistry with the bat.


Importantly, most members of the present Indian squad knew well the conditions they were going to encounter, having been part of the team the last time.

With the series squandered, India's attempts to save the ignominy of a 3-0 defeat will have them comfronting a bouncy Wanderers surface that sported a generous dose of grass covering two days out from the game. The number one Test side is set to be asked some tough questions, and the way it responds to them will shape assessments of Kohli's performance as a captain. "Unlike 2013 (when South Africa and India contested a thrilling draw), this is a more result-oriented pitch", Buthelezi added. "I don't think Wanderers will be a friendlier wicket than that". Here, conditions are different. Irrespective of whether you are playing at home or outside. "In these conditions, you will get out playing too many shots". But in an age where averaging 50 with the bat is the same as averaging the old benchmark of 40, everyone has a meltdown the moment they don't get a flawless wicket to boost their precious averages and numbers of five-fors taken.

Meanwhile, Indian captain Virat Kohli believes his side is still the best in the world when it comes to Test cricket.
