New Delhi: South Africa are a tough team to beat on any ground in any part of the world. But as they take on the Indian cricket team in upcoming T20 series, here are a few reasons why MS Dhoni and his boys have an upper hand.
MS Dhoni's experience: While South Africa have a new captain in Faf du Plessis, India are led by MS Dhoni, who still is a champion in limited-overs cricket. India have performed exceptionally well under his captaincy in coloured jersey and there is no reason why they cannot thrash the Proteas in T20s.
Virat Kohli's exuberance: After ending India's 22-year wait of a series win in Sri Lanka, Kohli would be high on confidence. The energy he brings on the field is a delight to watch and the stylish right-hander would be keen to prove that he is ready to lead India in all formats going forward.
Quality spin attack: Indian have a power-packed spin attack in Ravichandran Ashwin, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra and Axar Patel. All these spinners can contribute with the bat as well which only adds more value to the squad.
Home support: Playing against India on their home ground is a tough nut to crack for any team. Even though the South Africans have the experience of playing on Indian soil, when it comes to home support, the best of teams collapse under pressure against India.
