Virat Kohli's quest for World T20 title begins with strong preparation as Team India plays a three-match bilateral series against South Africa beginning at Dharmasala tomorrow.The 3-0 series win against the West Indies could be called a pre-cursor as it was just after enduring a disappointing end to their ODI World Cup campaign. The real battle begins now with this series which will kick-off at Dharamsala tomorrow, against Quinton de Kocks and Kagiso Rabadas, who are also in the midst of a tough transition phase.
A good spell from Rabada or a cameo from David Miller could pose challenge for the Indians, while some of the others like Test specialist Temba Bavuma or Anrich Nortje will like to prove their credentials in absence of Faf du Plessis or Hashim Amla.
There will be around 20 odd matches for captain Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri to build a near perfect combination going into the World T20 in Australia in October next year. Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya will be seen in action.
