    Also today the scoreboard may make it look like an easy win but India had to fight when they were batting, especially Kohli. Dhawan looked invulnerable. SA were scratching at the door and it was entertaining to see Kohli just survive in there. Guy has a knack of absorbing pressure. If India had lost another wicket at that stage, with Yuvraj and others to come in, they would still may have won it but it wouldn't have been this straight forward. Kohli's greatest strength as a chaser is that he finishes the job. That's a priceless trait.

    Don't think you can keep India as the same as other teams, imo it goes England >> India >> Other teams. I mean while it's true that we were caught pants down in the SL game, the other games (including 2 warm ups) have been very dominant victories.

    India is better than England. The players should be confident against them after that dominant 300+ chase recently in the bilateral series.

    We've got a much better batting line up, you've got a better bowling line up and fielding. I'd back whoever is chasing to win.

    Well that was a let down. What a dud match as a neutral. South Africa were abysmal. At least the weather was glorious.

    Really thought Kumar's opening spell set the tone for the day. He went wicketless but on a pitch offering nothing for pace bowlers he bowled exceptionally, putting the pressure on South Africa from the get go.

    Therefore even though South Africa got into a halfway reasonable position midway through the position, it always felt India were going to prevail.
