Brace yourself as we are about to witness the clash of titans! India the ODI champs will lock horns with the Test champions South Africa in South Africa. Ten Cricket will provide live streaming online and also live TV telecast in India. While the Indian team looks highly successful in last one year, South Africa looks determined to win at home.
India vs South Africa 2013 cricket schedule is as mentioned below:
1st ODI – 5th of December 2013
2nd ODI – 8th of December 2013
3rd ODI – 11th of December 2013
1st Test – 18th to 22nd December 2013
2nd Test – 26th to 30th December 2013
The players to watch out from the Indian batting line up would certainly be the trio – Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. They have amassed a lot of runs in the cricketing calendar of 2013. It would be worth watching whether they can continue their good form against the fierce pace of Steyn, Morkel and Philander.
Indian bowling line up looks fragile but hopefully they get used to the bowling friendly conditions out there and make the most out of it. Indians would bank on the early help that the pacers may get and some spin and turn for the spinners who can trouble the home team.
The Indian team has flourished under the captaincy of Mr. Cool Dhoni. Let us see if he can collect another feather in his hat of winning a series in South Africa. Indian team is very well aware of the home team strength and they are in no mood to take them lightly.
Even though South Africa lost an ODI series at home against Pakistan, still they are stronger at home. Indian team looks better on paper in the ODI series but test series would be a bigger challenge. With the return of Kallis, the team looks balanced. Smith will lead the test team and AB de Villiers will be the ODI captain for South Africa.
Let us sit back, relax and enjoy the clash of heavyweights!
