India A vs South Africa A Predictions and Preview Who Will Win 18th Aug 2015
India A vs South Africa A 1st unofficial test will start from August 18th in Kerala. India A is currently on a high after they won the triangular series beating the Australians. This was an unexpected win for the Indian team. They had to fought really hard as it looked like no one could beat the Australian side. But sadly Australia A team failed to make a big score while batting first at the final. Indian batsmen did not have too much pressure on them when they came to bat as the target was not too big. They were able to get past Australian total very easily. This triangular series win will definitely help the India A team with their confidence. India A coach Rahul Dravid was really happy with the way his boys played at the final. They showed that they can keep their nerve at the finals.
Many players in the India A side proved in this tri series that they are ready to play International matches for Indian team. This was the actual intension of the selectors as a lot of senior players are going to announce retirement from International games very soon. So the selectors are trying to build a second team who can replace the current team when it will be required. But not just for ODIs, Indian selectors are also looking to build a new test squad. This is why they have invited “South Africa A” and Australia A team to play an unofficial test series against the India A team. The games will last 4 days. It is believed that the Kerala Pitch will help the fast bowlers a lot and actually they are very similar to the pitches in South Africa. Indian selectors want the new team to be comfortable in these kinds of wickets.
South Africa A had a hard time at the tri angular series. They lost all the matches they played. The Chennai weather was too hot for them. Six of their players were hospitalized due to food poisoning. The could not had 11 players to play for the team in one game, the problem was so bad that the South African team management requested the Indian team to play instead them against the Australia A. But good news for them is that India A vs South Africa A 1st unofficial test will be played in Kerala, where the weather is much less hotter than Chennai.
When India A played unofficial test series against the Australians, current Indian captain Virat Kohli played for the team. But now it is all up to the new players to stop the South Africans. It will not be that difficult considering South African team is not really playing that well so far in the Indian tour. India A captain Ambati Rayudu is hopeful that his team will be able to play some quality cricket in this test series. He is really happy with the team that selectors chose for him. He thinks this team has a good combination of bowlers and batsmen.
Dane Vilas who will lead the South Africa A team hopes his players will be able to handle the hot weather better than last time. He has seen the pitch and he is happy with the quality. His team has some good medium pacers who will be able to take advantage of the wicket. India A vs South Africa A 1st unofficial test is expected to be a high scoring one. It is after a long time that a cricket match is happening here and that is why the demand for tickets is not bad. India A has a good chance to win the match.
