    Ok, I'm gonna disregard INd/NZ because I dunno if thats happening and can't be arsed to google it.

    As for SA, they might be more competitive than normal but will likely lose.

    They might pick up a win in England but lose the series. I hope to attend days in both the Pak and India series.

    In Aus, honestly, no chance. They might pick up their second test win in Australia in 10 years but better Indians sides than this have toured and failed to win more. If its a 4 test series, I expect it to be 4-0 or 3-1 at best for India.

    I think people are underestimating this Indian side. This is the best Indian touring side I have seen in 30 years of following cricket. I would expect them to be competitive in each of South Africa, England and Australia and my bet - they win one series (England 2-1), draw one (South Africa 1-1) and lose one (Australia 2-1).

    So, even in a worst case scenario India will somehow manage to win a test in South Africa while still being thrashed 4-0 in Australia?

    That's exactly correct, the few times recently where we've gone ahead and gotten good fast wickets it's been against SA the one team who would like it just as much as us. Of course they're not doing it on purpose but you could be forgiven for suspecting it.

    For India to be successful in places like South Africa then I think Hardik Pandya is key to offering India the right balance to field a five-man attack and they can include a spinner within that and have that attacking batsman at six. South Africa would be a real test for Pandya, untested still at this level and in those conditions so it would perhaps be unfair to ask too much too soon, but I am really looking forward to seeing how he goes if gets the chance.

    Yeah I agree with this. This is a confident and focused team with a more aggressive captain.

    I think this side compares favorably to the Indian side of 2007-2010, which won in England, drew in SA and won a test in Australia. I don't see why they cant reproduce those results, or do even better.

    If they reproduce the 2007-10 team's away results, it will definitely go down as the best Indian team ever.

    England dropped a test against the Windies of all teams. Don't think there's any under-estimation.

    Are you really serious? I have seen numerous better sides in 30 years than the one currently playing. I saw a side with Tendulkar, Ganguly, Dravid, Khan, Kumble and Singh. That was later supplemented with Dhoni. Those teams were far better all round than the current side. India being competitive in SA and ENgland will likely be because of how weak those sides have come but I won't make any excuses, India will not win in SA but might sneak a test match in England.

    As for a fully fit Australia, even on the flatter modern pitches, India will be out scored, time and time again. I cant imagine it being any different from a couple years back.

    england drop tests on the regular at home. but with anderson in sub 20 form at home they will take some serious beating.

    Personally I think people are overrating this india pace attack. I see no true class bowler in there. Might have more depth then previous teams but that's about it.

    No kidding. Pretty much the same as the attack they had the last time they toured South Africa only with Kumar and Bhumrah in place of Zaheer Khan. Oh, and Hardik Pandyia. Really fearsome now.

    Hey come on, let's not turn this into another conversation about why the problem with Indian bowlers is their diet
