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

    As already pointed out, South Africa's series to lose.

    Still I won't be able to watch live I think, but if it remains overcast, SA win the toss and Steyn gets the new ball I think I'll go into depression.

    Is ten cricket the only channel that is going to be covering the series ?

    Massive test for India this, they want to be recognised as the best team in the world, then they have win series such as these in unfamiliar conditions. Similarly for SA, they have to beat the best to be considered as the best, it promises to be a great series.

    On an individual basis we have heard so much of Virender Sehwag recently, and rightly so as he's been in blistering form. but will be interesting to see how he copes with the problems he'll face on these SA pitches. If he thrives then we can talk about him as one of the finest destructive batsmen in the world, regardless of conditions. I personally still have certain reservations about him when the track's a little more sporting.

    Would be a tough series for India. Already the talk of the pitches having more bounce in SA. Hope they do well still. Obviously its a tussle between the Indian batsmen and South African bowlers. I would like to see Pujara playing instead of Raina, who is an utter failure against bouncing ball. SA'n batting has gone really strong in the last couple of years with Amla and AB finding great success in the test arena. Would be nice to see how Indian bowlers perform on helpful wickets. All in all an intriguing series awaits..!!

    I would make SA favourites aswell, think India will struggle to come to terms with these conditions against a strong side.

    A question for the Indian fans on this site : if you had to choose between India winning the test series against South Africa and India winning the World Cup, what would you go for ?

    Pretty tough that. Still i would go for the series win in SA. We have won the WC before but a test series in SA where conditions are so alien to many players in India will be quite an achievement. We have always been called as bad tourists and this win would clear doubts and uncertainties to a certain extent that many people have over this team being not deserving to be no:1. WC happens int he sub continent and in all likely hood we have a good chance to win it. But winning a test series in SA is going to be more sweeter for me. Moreover we haven't won a test series in SA ever.

    Fair enough, good to see Test cricket still plays an important part in the Indian supporters mind. I agree in that India have an exceptional chance of winning the World Cup, and this series represents a bigger test, in unfamiliar conditions against a strong outfit.

    Not sure the BCCI would go along with this, I know schedules are very tight these days, but surely they should have made time available for one first-class tour match in SA at the very least. They are going straight into the Test series with only net practice giving them the chance to adjust. Poor preparation imo.

    Yeah, that is how I look at it as well. I would have gone for the World Cup if India hadn't won it in 1983, though.
