De Villiers out of first three ODIs

31 January 2018

He was the top scorer in the test series and India would want him to continue his great run of form and win the ODI series for his team.

"Our mindset has changed", Du Plessis said at Kingsmead on Wednesday". Though India have fond memories of winning against England here in the 2003 World Cup and of course, for registering the famous Test win in 2010-11. "I think that is going to be a major strength for this team going forward", he said.

In Test cricket, the game has a pattern, and it goes with a flow and a speed. The spinning duo, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, will be eager to continue tormenting the opposition, from where they left a year ago. I want to wish them all the very best for the final. What would they have done had Larwood been bowling his deadly bodyline thunderbolts to them, as he did to get rid of Bradman by any means-injury or otherwise?

"Then‚ when you get to a big tournament‚ that becomes your focus as well".

Next up for Liverpool is a trip to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday, and three points are vital in their quest for a top-four finish. Liverpool have not suffered successive league defeats since September 2015.

"Conditions were bowling-friendly [in the test series] but I was surprised at how consistent the Indian seamers were". The talk throughout the Test series was focused on the weird selections from the Indian camp and the XI for tomorrow's first ODI will be under scrutiny as well.

"We are happy to have two who are very different to each other". Test bowlers Bumrah, Bhuvi, Shami and Hardik stay back for the ODI series. Such abandonments of matches rob the spectators of their money and a good game, cricket of its sporting legacy and spirit, and creates a unsafe precedent where teams can manufacture excuses to evade its worldwide responsibilities. That's why I said the balance of the team is pretty good at the moment.

After an enthralling three matches in the Test arena, the ODI series promises to be an exciting well-matched contest between the world's best two sides.

Meanwhile, South Africa have a few changes thrown in as they bid to plan ahead for the 2019 World Cup. The 29-year-old is in wonderful form and he is arguably even better in the white-ball format, with 32 centuries and an average of 55.74 in 202 matches so far.

"This is the first time we've taken a small step away from the now and a bigger step into the future". India have always played the whole series whenever we've gone overseas. "I have never been involved in a vision like that".

"Youll see many people making a strong statement for themselves much earlier than we all did. If you say that, you have to give yourself a little bit of allowance". But De Villiers will miss the first three games because of a finger injury he suffered during the third Test. Pitch is expected to be slow in parts, with rain around and a heavy layer of brown grass seen a day before play. JP Duminy and David Miller are back in the ODI set up as well.

History favours South Africa at Durban, though.

"The key for us is to start well", he added.
