its a combination of both the factors....both these opponent teams boast of great pace attacks and thrive on their home conditions.....and its really difficult to adjust in such alien conditions...but, said that, our batting line up boasts of quality batsmen and should tackle them well....

c playin in these conditions is not a problem we r facing only now.....its been here 4m quite a few years.......and the story is being repeated almost every time 4 supportin my pt... india scored 400+ in 1st innings of cape town test when pitch was on the slower side.....while in durban and johannesburg where dere was a bit bounce,indian batsmen were unable 2 put a big score

as i said before...its tough to adjust to such situations....but, talking about examples there are numerous ones where india has batted very well in such conditions...especially laxman, dravid , sachin n ganguly have performed well on such tracks in australia and africa in the past......and there is no reason they cant do it yet again....its just the matter of form, fitness and confidence

india batsman are only able to play on spinning and low bounce pithes . the only batsman who plays very well on bouncy pithes is vvs laxman.he is a classic player .who can play hook or pull shot easily on bouncer..where as i think ganguly is the worst one...although he is performing well now a days :-)

It is because most of the pitches in subcontinent are batting tracks, the bounce is not much, but once we go abroad to play, there the condion are different. We have to make pitches accordingly..
