Ravi Shastri (@RaviShastriOfc) December 31, 2017India are scheduled to play South Africa in three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is, starting January 5 in Cape Town. Team India practiced indoors on Sunday due to rain in Cape Town, Kohli had earlier said after the outdoor practice session, “If you look at the wicket that we are practicing on right now then it is not even 15 per cent of what we are going to get in the game so we understand that.”There is no point wasting two days in which guys go out and score quick fifties and come out. We would rather have them do two sessions like today and get into the Test match zone and test ourselves. We can try and prepare the wicket the way we want to but if you are playing a two-day game then there is no room for changing the wicket at different times of the day,” he had said.advertisementAfter the first team practice in South Africa, Shastri stressed on the fact that India are well prepared for upcoming challenge.”This team is up for the challenge. If you had asked me four years ago I would have said no. But this team has gained in experience. The beauty of this team is that it doesn’t matter which opposition. We look at the pitch and adapt to the conditions. Every game is a home game. It’s as simple as that,” he said.”This will be a contest. I can sense our players want this Test match to start as soon as possible,” he added.”Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan showed off their dance moves on the streets of Cape Town, as the world ushered in the New Year. The first Test match begins January 5 in Cape Town.This is how other cricketers wished their fans a happy 2018:Happy new year everyone woohoooo.
