India's tour of South Africa

Cricket News : India got thrashed at the champions trophy and India again got thrashed at the hands of South African ‘A’ team in their tour opener. What a life these Indian cricketers lead. Wow!!Do no work and get paid in millions. Okay maybe I’m being too harsh. But I’m sick of hoping for a good series victory. But as they say hope is what keeps the world going. So lets hope the Indians return victorious from this tour of South Africa.

The series is sure going to be interesting. The Indians will be tested by some hostile pace and bounce and it remains to be seen how they will contend with it. The ODIs are going to be played first and then the five-day matches. What is going to be interesting is the twenty/20 match scheduled on 1st of December. Indians play very few of these and this one is going to be a rare treat indeed.
