Team India practices indoors due wet outfield in Cape Town; See pics”

So, it would be really interesting to see how this team, which has talent, skill and also the right attitude to win on tough tours, perform on those bouncy, swinging and seaming conditions.

The much-anticipated series starts at Newlands on 5 January with the other two games in Centurion and Johannesburg. And yes, until and unless the Virat Kohli-led team does well over the next 18 months, when it will be touring above countries, it cannot be termed as the greatest team in recent history.

"A lot of our players have played here before". Individually as well as our personal skill-sets plus as a team, we know exactly what to do if we are to bounce back from a certain situation and how we need to do it, and if we want to create chances, how we should create them.

Kohli said team spirit was the outstanding feature of the touring party.

"There's a sense of intelligence and awareness that has creeped in in the last four years, and that provides the excitement that we're talking about". That's the kind of challenge you need to take up, especially when you go to places like South Africa, England, and Australia, because you go there once and you are not going back in a long time.

"Everyone is confident. Whenever any team tours overseas, there is a great chance to win those series, but you have to give your best in every department on all five days". "We'd rather have them do two sessions like today". "We are prepared about what we are going to get here". We can prepare the way we want to, but if you're playing a two-day game then there's no room for changing the wicket at different times of the day.

Pace bowler Chris Morris has been restored to South Africa's squad for the first test against India next week after recovering from a groin injury, Cricket South Africa said on Friday. If you had asked me four years ago I would have said no.

"This team has gained in experience now".

"The beauty about this team is that it doesn't matter who the opposition is". If you are ready to take up the challenge mentally, every conditions seem like home conditions. "It's as simple as that". They can prepare for what Shastri predicts will be a "good contest" against an Indian side that want to start bossing opposition away home, having done it so confidently in their own backyard for the last nine series.
