The sweeping comments made by sharadgarg ignores the fact that India has won many an international tournaments and emerged as world champions. It is wrong to base a judgement based on the tour starting game, when generally India are late starters. Also discounting the performance of most of the players and saying India will lose the test matches also is far fetched. No doubt Indian team has got its foot wrong in the first match and have performed badly, but it does not mean that they will not come back and perform better

cool! it is going to be a good match to see. SA will beat Indian in rest two one dayers as well. Because SA is the best pace attack in the world. India is the weakest pace attack. Even, Zimbabwe pace attack is better than India. The only two batsman who can make runs here are: Dhawan and Kohli. Rohit cannot succeed in SA and Aus. he should come down the order at no7 or no8 to face these bowlers in foreign conditions. He is really nude now. He was making runs at 60 avg on slow. low and flat hitting pitches in India. Indian might loose the test series also because SA has excellent fast bowlers. I think India should play 5 fast bowlers and no spinner if they wish to compete. Ishant, Umesh Yadav, Shami, BKumar and Mohit Sharma should play next 2 games. India should hope it raiins in durban so they can level the series in final odi. Kohli will be a flop in SA series. Dhawan and Dhoni will also flop in remainder of series. Because Steyn and company are targeting them.
