India vs South Africa Tour: Complete schedule and fixtures

Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Teams and individuals achieve greatness by their performances in unfamiliar conditions. "That experience will stand them in good stead".

India vice captain Ajinkya Rahane on Tuesday said the team has a good chance to win the Test series in South Africa and the players will do their best to win it. They did go to Australia in 2016 but that was for an ODI and T20 series. The two teams will be playing all three formats of the game in a tour span of over close to two months. Ahead of the team's departure to South Africa, captain Virat Kohli made it clear that the side has "nothing to prove to anyone". India's batsmen don't mind pace and swing troubles them more than bounce does. They were reminded that they have won every bilateral series that they have won in these three years. But. We are looking forward to face the South African team. Initially, India were scheduled to play a warm-up game as well but that was later cancelled. Sri Lanka was very similar to our conditions, but it is an away tour.

"You need to play really good cricket for a very long period of time to win series and that is something that we are pretty excited about and we want to go out there and express ourselves".

Zimbabwe put up a fight at the start of their second innings, reaching 54 before they lost their first wicket - although opening batsman Hamilton Masakadza was forced to retire hurt after being struck on the right elbow by a ball from Morkel. Coach Shastri refused to read too much into that decision.

The team will travel to South Africa on December 27 and will train for a week before the commencement of the first Test. Wanting challenges and embracing and that's what we are looking for. They've got good spinners, fast bowlers and all-rounders. We have done well in England.

India's preparations for the overseas tour were left hampered due the scheduling of a long full tour against Sri Lanka at home. "Try to do the same thing in a much better way". The nucleus has been the same, so that should help a long way.

"This one and a half years will define this Indian cricket team, and the whole team is aware of that". We are going there to just play cricket and it does not matter whether we are in South Africa, Australia, England or India. Kohli said it all depends on the mindset one gets into as a batsman.

The match was over before the dinner break so they didn t even have to bat under floodlights in what by common consent were the most hard batting conditions. "When you do things in challenging conditions it gives more satisfaction, that's for sure", added the 29-year-old. It's important to take up challenges mentally and then every condition seems like home condition. But the last word came, as usual, from Shastri. As the India teams jets out, the India cricket fan hopes soar.
