SA batsmen train with five spinners ahead of third ODI

India on the cusp of history SA batsmen train with five spinners ahead of third ODI

Disturbingly, the hosts once again were undone by the wizardry of the Indian wrist spinners, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, who took eight wickets between them.

India has registered comprehensive wins in the first two ODIs and now they are the favourite claimants of the series. Especially the overseas players, they are not used to (playing spin).

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan while talking to reporters here ruled out any chance of complacency. "But speaking for myself only, I find Kuldeep tougher to read", he added. Yadav ever since rising to prominence in the IPL has been an integral part of the Indian setup in the shorter formats and has lately formed a lethal partnership with Yuzvendra Chahal.

Dhawan said, "From my point of view, chinaman is more hard to read".

"If I speak of Kuldeep and Chahal, I personally find Kuldeep harder to read, and easier to read the leg spinners". There are players who can't read googlies. There are many who can't read the leg spinner's googly, so Chahal's googly will surely fool batsmen.

There's a school of thought that the South Africa batsmen aren't trying to wear down Chahal and Yadav and suffering from a lack of patience. While the likes of Kagiso Ranbada, Morne Morkel are failing to hit the chords for their side, Chahal and Yadav have combined well for India to see off the challenge from the Proteas batsmen. South Africans haven't played wrist spinners much, so they have found it hard. Meanwhile, Kuldeep packed skipper Markram and explosive batsmen David Miller along with Rabada, in the end, to stop the Proteas on a spectacularly low total of 118. But they are very courageous and even on flatter pitches, wrist spinners will also come into play and they have made that difference in the game. We have game-plans and they've bowled well enough not to give us balls to play in our game-plan.

"They've bowled a touch slower than our spinners, and I think that's where they have been effective", he elaborated, echoing what Dale Benkenstein, the South Africa batting coach, had said after the second ODI.

While the South Africans still seem far from finding a solution to Kuldeep and Chahal, the manner of their success has even raised questions on whether they might be ready for Test cricket.

When he made his Test debut against Australia at Dharamsala early previous year, Kuldeep became the first specialist chinaman bowler to represent India at the worldwide level. In the second in Centurion, Chahal took a maiden fifer while Kuldeep had three. They will aim to continue their brilliant run in the series when they take the field in the third ODI in Cape Town.

"Here they felt even better because they were getting bounce, on some pitches like today, it got really slow at the end so they were getting turn as well. They are losing wickets in the middle overs and hence can't achieve their target (scoring more runs)". If you have doubts in your mind, then that reflects on your batting. "And this is giving us the advantage", said Dhawan. India hold a 2-0 lead in the six-ODI series.
