The Indian group’s contemporary display has raised hope ahead of they embark at the difficult South Africa excursion subsequent week. Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly too is constructive about their probabilities.
“It won’t be easy, that much I can tell you. But yes, we have a good team this time. If the batsmen are able to put up runs on the board, this attack can pick the wickets,” he mentioned right here on Monday.
Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president Ganguly, who got here down right here to fulfill the Bengal avid gamers who’re taking part in the Ranji semifinal in opposition to Delhi, was hoping the prevailing bunch of avid gamers had the power to face up to the problem in South Africa.
India will straightaway play the primary Test as their scheduled follow tie was once cancelled on the remaining second. But Ganguly felt that are meant to no longer make an enormous distinction to the group’s fortunes. “Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay have all been to South Africa before. So, they have a good idea about the conditions there. And the best thing is that they are going back to South Africa as better players,” Ganguly said.
India’s provide attack is now being in comparison to the arena’s very best in many quarters and Ganguly too is pleased with their display. But on the identical time he was once no longer in a position to leap to conclusions and label it as India’s very best attack ever to set foot on overseas soil.
