Indian cricket team has performed outstandingly well at home. However, the results in the subcontinent was never a problem for the Indian team. It was always the overseas conditions that have tested them over the years. Be it the legendary four or any of the previous teams, India has never managed to do well outside of India.
This home season India have outclassed every opposition that came in their way. They will now face a real test during their visit to South Africa. The Proteas team have been ruthless at home and no one has managed to even get close to a victory. India will have to produce their A-game to win the series. Murali Vijay, the Indian Test opener, sounded fairly confident when he talked about their chances against the Africans.
Well equipped to do well
India have fought hard and fought well at home but it will take a lot of effort to do well in South Africa. It is going to be a long tour as they play three Tests, six ODIs, and three T20Is during the tour.
Vijay said that the current Indian team is capable of beating any team in any conditions. He also stated that they need to get used to the conditions there. The series is as important as any other said the right-hander. However, he denied that it is the only series to look forward to.
“It is going to be very important for us. If you think about short-term goals then yes, this series is very important for us to start. I personally think we are well equipped to do well. As I said, we’ve got to go there, get used to the conditions really fast and find a way to perform,” said Vijay.
India’s chances on foreign soil are always slimmer but this team has a different face to it. With their captain Virat Kohli being one of the best batters in the world they will surely not be a pushover for the Africans.
