dhoniNew Delhi, Wednesday, September 23 – Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Amit Mishra have been selected for the first three ODIs and T20 matches against South Africa. Having Mahendra Singh Dhoni as their leader, it is expected that the team will play as a unit to log victories in each game.

Challenges are huge for the guests as they may take time to get fit in weather conditions of the country. Current reports point out to the fact that climate will be clear with immense sun shine. Moreover, South African players are familiar with India’s fluctuating temperatures as most of them have played in different seasons of Indian Premier League, which took place during peak summers.

Indian camp certainly has advantage of playing in home conditions but how they capitalize it in a way near to perfect will be a thing to notice after the tournament begins. Sreenath Aravind has been given the chance to perform in shortest format while Gurkeerat Singh Mann in One-Day International matches. The young men will look forward to get the most out of the opportunity that came in their way recently. Decision for Dhoni whom to ask to perform and whom to say stay on bench will reflect on the outcome, for sure. Expectations automatically go up when so many talented cricketers are selected to make a team look stronger.
