Top 5 ODI performances by Indians against South Africa

Bowling with Kookaburra will be a challenge Bhuvi

India have not won a single Test series in the "Rainbow Nation" for the past 25 years but Kohli said that his team is paying no attention to the past series in South Africa.

"The first thing that comes to the mind when you are touring South Africa is bouncy wickets. It will be a challenge to bowl with the red Kookaburra ball, but we are up for it". The Kookaburra is the toughest ball to bowl with. "In the past, the build-up has always been great, the talk of the wickets, the talk of the bounce, we do have a slight advantage, but we still need to land the ball in the right areas, still need to bowl with intensity", Morkel told Sport24. We are trying to do basic things.

Bhuneshwar informed that the Indian pacers have not started to prepare their strategies for the first Test which is scheduled to start on January 5 and will only do so a couple of days before the series. But the team has been in excellent form over the past two years, winning every series in that period and reclaiming the top spot in the Test rankings in the process. In 77 ODIs till date, India have triumphed on 29 occasions, South Africa have prevailed in 45 matches while the remaining three matches have ended in draws. "We have done well in the last two years and we are confident of doing well in these conditions".

The pacer said because of the variety in their attack, there is a lot to learn from each other.

India's bowling department will be relying on Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya.

"I won't say there's much of swing, but bounce is something every fast bowler enjoys".

The pace unit has not made any such strategy, but are just keeping it simple and Bhuvneshwar said that they will plan in the next few days.

The total of 307 was possible due to Shikhar Dhawan's innings of 137 runs off 146 balls which included 16 boundaries and two sixes.
