India players will have to fearless the bounce in the upcoming three-match Test series against South Africa, where the conditions are different, with bounce being a major factor.

India bowled South Africa out for just 177 and won the contest by a margin of 130 runs. But it is a different affair when it comes overseas as Kookaburra balls are used, which will test the India bowlers.

Bhuvneshwar, highly effective when it comes to swinging the ball, said the pace attack is yet to get down to strategising for the game and the focus is on bowling long spells. The Kookaburra is the toughest ball to bowl with. May be a couple of days before the first Test, we will see how to strategize according to the batsman. "It does not do too much after 25- 30 overs, so these are the kind of situations we are trying to prepare for".

"We have not talked so far about the strategy". India is yet to claim a single Test series in the "Rainbow Nation" for the past 25 years, however, Captain Kohli believes that his team will break the taboo this year.

Texans Expected To Retain Bill O'Brien
O'Brien staying could be a sign that the Texans are moving on from Smith, who has been with the organization for over a decade. Watson tore his ACL at the beginning of November, effectively ending any chance the Texans had of reaching the playoffs.

Virat and Anushka are now together in South Africa ringing in New Year's celebration.

With a great mix of solid batsmen and good fast bowlers, this tour is being viewed as a golden chance for India to get one over hosts South Africa. "Yes, we can pick few a things from each other".

India's bowling department will be relying on Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya. "But yes, like I said, we have to be at our best to win the series here", he said.

Seemingly impatient and frustrated with his daddy avoiding him, the junior Dhawan stopped Shikhar in the middle of his performance with Kohli and dragged him back into the crowd.
