Vastavam web: Former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar says Indian team’s recent success at home and an in-form captain Virat Kohli gives him confidence that they will enjoy success during next year’s overseas tours.India are set to tour South Africa early next year, where they play three Tests, six One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20s. The first Test will be played at Cape Town from January 5.They have beaten every team in the world and I am sure that they will do very well in South Africa as well as in England, because we have got some outstanding players.
“India is led by world class cricketer and at the same time Virat Kohli is in great form. The attack also looks very good so I am sure we will do extremely well, the 61-year-old former batsman told reporters here.Echoing similar views, Gavaskar said, “The way we beat them (England) last year and hopefully the coming year 2018, we will probably tell the British that sometimes the students are better than the professors.”
A couple of hours ago, I had visitors from England, club cricketers who have come to play cricket here and I was telling them about how that particular experience changed my perspective on the game to a great extent, because till then I was not a professional cricketer.The exhibition, which is open till December 21, depicts the history of series played between India-England over the years and a special corner dedicated to cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar.
