Indian Players playing first time in South Africa seems like a joke to me. All these indian players have played so much of cricket. I think indian cricket fans are just blind folded in the love of their cricket team that they are unable to see the reality. India wins only on flat pitches and that too against sides with a normal bowling attack like westindies etc. Any side with a superior bowling attack and a normal batting line up have thrashed India hard and will continue to do so irrespective of where the match is being played. Just like Pakistan did so in India in the start of 2013. A world class team have the ability to show some fight on no matter what pitch the match is played on. And I did not see any fight from this Indian No. 1 side. Such a club level team india has become while playing outside India. Feeling sorry for the fans.

india played on 'test type' green pitches and beaten badly by SA. Many of indian players playing 1st time in SA and it is good learning period for them. I know u cannot say green pitch was a reason but it was well doctored to support SA batsman. SA is very inconsisent in odi's lost 4-1 vs sl, 2-1 vs pak and won 4-1, 2-0 so they are finally something to cheer and this way of winning odi series will not help to win big tournaments and they never won bilateral series in india, performed badly in asia in past and also poor against spin bowling. SA yet to prove in asia after no1 rankings. So they need to prove more.
