There are 3 Tests, 6 ODI’s and 3 T20’s to be Played in the India tour of South Africa. These are the few things to Watch Out For in India-South Africa Series.
Kohli Invincible Form:
The 29 year Old Delhi boy is in Impeccable Form. Smashing Everything comes under his way.His Records speaks for Himself and this is So Called a Real Challenge For Kohli to Face Likes Of Rabada and Other Fast Bowlers on South Africa Pitches.But One Can Expect this is just a Another Game For Kohli and he is Ready to Conquer those Big tons not only in Sub Continent But in Overseas as well. Has to wait and See how this Modern Great Tackles South African Bowlers.
The Spin Duo is the Major Asset of this Current Indian Team. This Combination Has trembled almost every Batting Order who visited to India. If we go through the Archives One Can See Ashwin Bowling those wonderful deliveries and Providing 5-fer’s Almost in a every match which puts him in the Fastest Indian Bowler to Pick 200 Test Wickets. While Ravi jadeja the Currently 2nd Ranked test Bowler is as Crucial as R Ashwin to this Team, he Comes in Bowls those quicker Deliveries and wouldn’t Allow batsmen to Score Fluent runs and Picks those Key Wickets in Quick Successions. But All these Comes Under Inside Asia. When team travels Outside Asia One Should Admit they are not Much Effective as they are in India. Even Having Wonderful Records by his name Ashwin has a bad mole on him that he picks wickets in Sub-Continent only. With this Series Approaching Ashwin and Jadeja Rubbing their hands to Prove they are the Match Winners Outside Asia as well.
Heavy Pace Attack:
India are Going with 5 Fast Bowlers and 1 Pace Allrounder. Indian Pacers Especially M Shami And Bhuvneshwar kumar has been in tremondous Form and Straight Away if there won’t be any injury concerns these two are Likely to play in the firts Test and Who is the third Seamer? Will it be Umesh or Ishant or Bumrah. Having Seen the Performance From Ishant in the Second and Third Test, Kohli would likely to go with Ishant. Can Indian Seam bowlers trouble this SA Mighty batting Lineup has to wait and See.
Real Test For Middle Order:
With the Top 4 Scoring Tons of Runs India’s Middle Order hasn’t been Much Exposed to tough situations. Rahane,Saha and Ashwin has to play their best in this series to withstand the SouthAfrican Bowlers. Especially Rahane has to find his touch back after poor SL Series. He is the Player who has been Consistent from the past two years and has an wonderful Overseas Record. If Rahane and Saha show Resilience and Provide Healthy Partnerships India will be in the Right track to Clinch Another Series Victory.
Hardik Pandya Growth:
If One Aspect where India is lacking from the last Five years it is the Fast Bowling Allrounder. In Search of this India tried Various Players but it didn’t worked well. Then Came Hardik Pandya and Glued his place in Indian team in Limited Overs Cricket. And Then He Played first test Series in Srilanka and he Scored 178 Runs in 3 innings Including Magnificient Century and with the ball he is equally impressive Picked 4 wickets in that tour. Especially in Conditions Like South Africa which favours Fast Bowling. A Genuine Pace Allrounder is very handy in Providing Right Balance to the team. Will he has the ability to withstand the SouthAfrican Bowlers and Score Runs or Does he trouble South African Bastsmen and Get Some Edges? Has to See, If he does then it would be fantastic to Team India not only in South Africa tour but for the Future as well.
