Former cricketer Ajay Jadeja opines that the first Test against South Africa underway in Cape Town provides India with their best chance to win a match in the three-Test series.
“It will be a great challenge. Lot of people expect us to win easily there but I don’t think it would be that easy. Yes we are better side than what we used to be in the past. But overseas is always a different ballgame. You see that when other teams come here it is the same for them,” Jedeja said at an event to bid adieu to the Indian blind team for the World Cup.
“The first Test match is probably going to be the most important and India are lucky to play in Cape Town this time. Normally we play in Cape Town at the end of the series and by that time we are beaten mentally.
“Luckily, we will be playing on a pitch that gives us the best chance to win because that’s the one that turns, that’s the one that gives a little help. It’s very hot out there and I believe it might turn. So, hopefully we will start well and have a better tour this time,” he added.
