India’s poor performance abroad South Africa had never been a place where Indians have dominated. This time too it was the same case. Indians lost the one day series 4-0. There was nothing worse than it. The top order collapsed like a castle of playing cards. No one but Sachin showed some command over the bounce and the pace of the Proteas . Unlike others he showed real class, while executing his master strokes. But there was no one at other end to support him. On such a good bouncy wicket and green top on each one Indian bowlers were wayward. Only thing required was some discipline. But alas!!! On and on a poor performance to display there incapability to do well abroad. The tigers at home were slaughtered as lambs in SA!!!

always this things happand with indian cricket team. because in our country pitch is not bouncy. its low bounce and lots of turn and slow pitch. so our players are habituted on slow pitch. if bowl comes slowly on the bat than they can hit like now they playing agaisnt west indies in india. when out side country there pitch are fast and bouncy. so our player cant play on fast and bouncy pitch. we have to change our home pitch. few pitches should be made a bouncy and fast. not all pitch. because if all pitch will make fast and bouce than we also loss in india. wherever our players cannot get practice on fast pitch we will fail in other country. and i am telling you we will also trouble in world cup in west indies.
