This year has been a great year for Indian cricket team. Indian cricket team defeated many international teams like New Zealand, Australia, Sri Lanka. Next year the challenges would be much higher as Indian cricket team tours South Africa, England and at the end of the year to Australia. These upcoming tours will test Indian batsman talent under different conditions.
First India will tour South Africa that will begin from 5 January. The tour will contain 3 test match, 6 ODI, 3 T20. India has started preparing for South Africa tour. The BCCI has also announced the team for 3 test matches which include two players Parthiv Patel and Jasprit Bumrah. Jasprit Bumrah will play his first international test match.

India Vs South Africa Preview
Once again the problem with the Kohli would be the opening pair. Which openers would be suitable for South African pitches as they have bounce and pace in them. Also, the team management would face the problem of all rounder’s. As to which all rounder they should play. The bowling combination would be very difficult to choose. With the inclusion of Jasprit Bumrah the battle for playing 11 spot have become interesting.According to me the probable playing 11 for first test match would be:
Murali Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane, CA Pujara, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Wriddhiman Saha, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav.
The Indian team must be hoping to start a new year with a bang. With the return of two South African legends after a long time that is Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers the competition would be much better as they both provide some stability to bowling attack and batting lineup. So get ready for an action thriller series.
