  • India Without Doubt A Stronger Team Than Sri Lanka- Kaif

Roshan Thyagarajan is cricket correspondent at Wisden India. It doesn't allow enough time for the players to rest.

Captain Virat Kohli, though, is confident of finding the right people to fill in their shoes.

"We learned a lot from the (previous) India series in Sri Lanka".

The first Test between the two teams ended in an exciting draw at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Monday.

India gave Sri Lanka a target of 231 runs with 42 overs remaining in the final day's play.

Talking about the nature of the pitch Chandimal said, "The first few days will be good for batters".

Indian will play three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is against South Africa beginning from January 5 in Cape Town. Veteran South African batsman Hashim Amla took as many innings to get there. There is also chances of injuries.

Kohli made the comment while interacting with media regarding the second Test match, beginning on Friday, against Sri Lanka in Nagpur. "The captain was on the other side and was guiding me asking me to be calm and play the normal game and they will get frustrated". It is because we need to have a look at the balance of the side as well. The most important thing is that we have come here to win the series. "We are trying to be in a game situation and think of what's coming ahead of us", Kohli said.

Kohli said, "Had we got a month off ideally, we would have done a proper preparation in a camp sort of scenario but we have to sort of make do with what we have". We have to make do with what we have. "As usual cramped for time, which I think we needed to assess in future as well".

"We have looked at a six-five combination or six-four- plus an all-rounder".

"And everyone starts judging players when results come after Test matches". But it should be a fair game, we should get to prepare the way we want to and then we're entitled to be criticised. It is a big challenge for us as a team to come here and win a game or a series.

"I am not saying everyone will go out and perform immediately. It applies for the bowlers as well".

In the recently concluded Test match Indian captain Virat Kohli completed his 50th century (Test-18, ODI-32, T20I-0) and by doing so he becomes world's 8th overall batsman who has the maximum number of centuries in the worldwide cricket.

"Only the opposition line-up will be taken into consideration as to who will play". "I'm not a robot, you can slice my skin and check if I still bleed", he had said soon after news of Hardik Pandya backing out of Sri Lanka series because of overwork arrived. Kohli too deserves a break.

Will Kohli's words have an impact?
