As per the Cricket Buzz the former captain Azharuddin said that it will be a tough time for the captain Kohli and his players as well, it will be a testing time for the club to prove their dominance and it will be real test for the India cricket news
This is what Azhar had to say regarding this series and he answered to the sources in the following way:
“The Sri Lanka series will be challenging but India’s real test will be against South Africa,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the inaugural Jagmohan Dalmiya Lecture.
The low-profile Sri Lanka series is seen as a prelude to the gruelling tour to South Africa, where they will play three Tests, six ODIs and three T20Is in January-February next year.
Azharuddin also showered praise on India skipper Virat Kohli. “He is outstanding. The way he is leading from the front is good to see.”
Azhar had a love affair with the Eden Gardens and whenever he batted here he seemed to be possessed by an urge to do well.
“Whatever I have, when you talk of memories at the Eden, they are only happy ones. I like this ground a lot,” he said.
Meanwhile Kohli addressed the media ahead of the start of the Test series against Sri Lanka.
“Every match you play is important and every series is huge. It’s not like we lose this series and you guys are not going to say nothing to us. So, everything is important when you play for the country and we don’t like to differentiate. We simply want to do well as a team,” Kohli said a day before the first Test against Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens.
