India vs South AFrica 2013 Series Preview:
After the dust has settled in India as Sachin Tendulkar career is over and they paid him a massive tribute (deservingly so) India cricket moves on. They were supposed to travel to South Africa for the long series which included all the formate matches but just to accomodate Sachin Tendulkar last 2 matches at home they had to reduce the away series against South Africa to just 3 odi and 2 test matches and they invited West Indies for the Tendulkar farewell.
Now They they will be traveling to South Africa starting from the first week of december 2013, where they are suppose to play three one day international matches as well as the two test matches in their own backyard.
India Team News:
We can expect the same side in the opening match which beat Australia on Tuesday, and going into the match Virat Kohli is India’s main stay in batting with Denish Karthik who is in sublime touch at the moment. Dhoni is always a threat in the later over as he proved against Australia.
South Africa Team News:
I can not see them making any changes from the team lineup when played against Pakistan, Hashim Amla will be axpecting to turn things on with the bat, with AB Deviliers following at the No 4. South Africa bowling will be the key against very good Indian batsman.
