India vs. SA First Test Preview

The Indian team would have seen a glimpse of winning moments in the recent past, beating the Aussies 2-0 and Kiwis 1-0 in the home but the team hasn’t verified their qualifications in the pitches abroad, mainly those beyond the subcontinent.

South Africans surely would have an edge having seen the Indian performance and being acquainted with the way the team performs in other non subcontinental conditions. For the youngsters, facing sessions of scorching fast bowling in the nets seem to be the only feasible resolution for them. The youngsters would have to follow the footsteps of Tendulkar and have to engage in more practice to master their skills.

India team has a well established matured opening pair. The compliance of Dravid, Sachin and Laxman can help the middle order hold the key. Raina and Dhoni have a small number of snooping questions which can be answered very well here.

As far as bowling is concerned, it seems to be more matured with Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma as well as Sreesanth who is just finding form when it is crucial. Dhoni would probably go with three pacemen in team, taking into consideration the ability of Sehwag with the ball.

The India vs. South Africa test series can be seen as an opportunity for Team India to counter attack against those who have laid denigrations on their incapability to prosper in pace friendly conditions.
