Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian captain has said that South Africa will pose bigger challenges to India, than what Sri Lanka did in their own backyard. Ganguly added that South African cricket team is very good traveller and the fact that they haven’t lost a single Test series since 2006 in away series just proves this fact. 

Talking of South African team composition for the Test matches, Ganguly said they are likely to field with 3 pacers and a lone spinner. The retirement of Kallis has just lest South Africa with a pacer short and had he been in there, South Africa might have gone with 2 spinners, with Kallis taking up the role of the 3rd pacer, he added. 

 

Ganguly also stressed on the fact that Duminy is not a bad spinner and one must not be surprised if Amla throws the ball to him. Talking of Imran Tahir, South Africa’s leading spinner, he said that Imran Tahir will be a key for South Africa here and praised him for his accuracy. However, Tahir is yet to do anything significant in the longer format and has not been able to replicate his form of the shorter version. However, Ganguly didn’t comment on Dane Piedt, the other spinner in the South African squad and said “Let him play first… Then we can talk about him,” Sourav said.
