"It will be a challenge to bowl with the red Kookaburra ball, but we are up for it". But that's a factor for the bowlers too. "We have not talked so far on the strategy".

Bhuvneshwar, highly effective when it comes to swinging the ball, said the pace attack is yet to get down to strategising for the game and the focus is on bowling long spells.

"The first thing that comes to our mind about bowling in South Africa is bouncy wickets, seaming wickets". We are doing centre-wicket practice and the batsmen are playing according to their batting order.

"Yesterday, we did two sessions to get into the Test mode". A couple of days before the Test, we will see how to go into the match. "These are the things we will definitely do, but for now we are trying to do the basic things", he said.

Team India is now stationed in South Africa for the upcoming series starting January 5 in Cape Town. India is yet to claim a single Test series in the "Rainbow Nation" for the past 25 years, however, Captain Kohli believes that his team will break the taboo this year.

Instant analysis of Chargers' 30-17 victory vs. Raiders Week 17
This will be the first time since the mid-1990s that the Raiders have played in their former home of Los Angeles. As they prepare to tackle the Raiders this Sunday, the Chargers do have a few question marks health-wise.

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

Virat will now start prepping for the upcoming series in South Africa and Anushka will likely be returning in the first week of January to begin the next schedule of Anand L Rai's film with Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai. "I can pick reverse swing from Umesh, Ishant and Shami and they can pick swing from me". "But yes, like I said, we have to be at our best to win the series here", he said. "For us, it is all about how we do against their batsmen".

Seemingly impatient and frustrated with his daddy avoiding him, the junior Dhawan stopped Shikhar in the middle of his performance with Kohli and dragged him back into the crowd.

"I have no update".
