    I can hardly wait. The promos on Neo have been really good. They are saying it is a "World Championship of cricket" which is a brilliant caption for this series. I think India will triumph this 1-0.

    I'm backing SA to triumph in India 1-0 this time around and beat the Indians 2-0 in the return leg on the high veldt.
    What do you guys reeckon ?
    its unlikely the the current sa team with a struggling middleorder and spinner will be able to win in india ,there best chance was the last time they toured.

    1-1 is my guess. Hoping for a result of 1-0 in India's favor though.

    South Africa are a very ordinary team.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    It ought to be an interesting contest, but I maintain that we do not stand a chance unless we go into the game with two spin bowlers and ensure that we have a competant second seamer to support Zaheer Khan. Neither Sreesanth nor Ishant Sharma have currently proved themselves to be competant bowlers, in their current incarnations.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    South Africa might win at home later in the year..but I really dont see them winning in India. It might be 1-1 like the last time.

    It'll be 1-1 if India decide to be generous. If one pitch is a flat road with no prospect of anyone winning, and two spinning wickets, I'd be ecstatic and back India to win 1-0 or 2-0. If Indian groundsmen go the Ahemdabad route, they should be fired, but then SA might win or draw.

    I don't see South Africa lacking a high quality spinner as something to count against them. Spinners aren't the key to winning in India... unless you're India.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    SA didn't need spinners in '99. Then again, they had Donald and Pollock.

    2 test series, so can't have one flat wicket and 2 spinning wickets.
