Cric Crak has got some interesting news for you as the former South African captain Graeme Smith has issued a warning to Team India ahead of their tour to South Africa early next year.
We all know by now that India is unbeatable at home, rather in the entire sub- continent. A few might say that we haven’t played in Pakistan but then you only play the conditions you are given. Virat Kohli, since taking charge has led his team to victory on almost every occasion and the Team is looking stronger than ever.

Taking nothing away from Team India’s performances till now, the real test for Kohli and his men will begin once they win outside home barring Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Zimbabwe. If they could do that on a regular basis there is no doubt that we might see something really special from this team over the next few years.
While the left hander from South Africa acknowledged India’s good run by congratulating the entire team for their fabulous performances throughout the season, he also added that the conditions in South Africa will be completely different, and be a complete test of character for the Indian team.
He quoted, ” India has been playing quite well. A lot can be attributed to how Virat Kohli has been playing test cricket and inspiring teammates. I think the conditions in South Africa will be different for the Indian team. They have been playing either at home or in Sri Lanka or Carribean where the ball comes a bit slow. The conditions in South Africa will be a real test for the Indians”.

He further expressed that he is looking forward to a fascinating contest between the highly skilled Indian batsman and South African bowlers. He quoted further, ” It would be interesting to see how Indians fare against Rabada, Morkel, Philander, and Maharaj”. On the contrary, he also feels that the South Africans lack a bit of fire power in their batting department and they would definitely need to step up and score big against a strong Indian team.
Cric Crak is already looking forward to starting his ‘2018 ‘ with a great series between 2 wonderful and evenly matched cricket teams.
