It has been a sensational run for India in the last couple of years across the formats. The Virat Kohli-led side has displayed top-class skills on the field to make themselves stay on the top half of the ICC Rankings table across the formats. Meanwhile, the former Indian bowler Amit Mishra feels India would dominate once again in upcoming series against South Africa.
Leg-spinner Amit Mishra on Thursday said that a well balanced Indian team has the upper hand in the upcoming home Test series against South Africa.
We have a better team – Amit Mishra
Speaking of the upcoming series, Amit Mishra believes the Indian team has got the balanced squad to make things fall in place. He quoted that Indians has got upper hand in every department of the game before pointing out the lack of experience in fast bowling section.
“We have a better team than them, a more balanced side. Our batsmen are better. In the bowling department also, we have better spin than them,” Mishra told reporters on the sidelines of an event. The only area where there is a 50-50 competition is in fast bowling,” he added.
South Africa has a tag of chokers:
Further, Amit Mishra highlighted the inability of the South African team, who fails to play under pressure. He pointed out their recent activity in World Cup, which was below par throughout the tournament. However, he warns India to be aware of South Africa’s fighting spirit.
“South Africa has the tag of chokers, we saw it in the recent ODI World Cup and also in T20 World Cup in 2016. They are not able to perform well under pressure, so that weighs them down. But yes they have the fighting spirit,” Mishra said.
India is scheduled to host South Africa in a three-match T20 International series beginning in Dharamshala on Sunday, followed by a three-match Test series starting October 2.
