The Indian team has already asked for a practice period of 10 days which would include atleast one. If not two practice games to gear up for the bouncy conditions.
It will be nothing short of a treat as two of the world’s best cricket teams will be colliding. The best part is Blue Shirts who would have played Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka at their home. They will lock horns with South Africa at their place. In short, this series will be a decider of the world’s number one team right now.
