Cullinan said he has doubt in Kohli's technique, but I doubt in his talent.

ali_eorse you have bad day just watch indian how they play . because of this over confidence your south African team never won a ICC series .

in cricket it is never over till it is. after handing down to india a drubbing at Mumbai in 2001, australians, having won 16 straight tests were already talking about 19th test win in england in the next ashes on their schedule in englandt two test wins in india assumed to be done over as a matter opf fact. india's follow on in Calcutta in second test after 274 runs deficit reinforced that view. and then what happened is known to all. india won the series 2-1. i do not say india can do that again but writing off india disdainfully may backfire. i hope it does.

As a Bangladeshi living in Detroit, I can say that India needs to look at the Ashes to konw the results. England lost 0-3 to AUS. The defeat that India will face in SA will be just like that: 0-2. Dale Steyn is like Mitchell Johnson, only he has a better supporting cast: Morkel. Plus, SA has Amla, the world's best batsman. India: It is over.
