Vernon Philander cautions India ahead of opening Test
Capetown, Jan 3 (Cricketnmore) South Africa paceman Vernon Philander on Wednesday cautioned India of the challenges when the two teams face off in the opener of the three-Test rubber at Newlands here from Friday.
India had no trouble dismantling South Africa on home soil in 2015, winning 3-0 in spin-friendly conditions, but Philander said he knew that this series will pose different challenges entirely.
"They have played most of their games at home so it will be interesting to see how they go over here in South Africa," he told reporters here.
"It's a total different ball game over here in South Africa so we'll have to wait and see.
