India vs South Africa: Former India spinner picks favourites to win series
Leg-spinner Amit Mishra on Thursday said that a well balanced Indian team has the upper hand in the upcoming home Test series against South Africa.
India is scheduled to host South Africa in a three-match T20 International series beginning in Dharamsala on Sunday, followed by a three-match Test series starting October 2.
'We have a better team than them, a more balanced side. Our batsmen are better. In the bowling department also, we have better spin than them,' Mishra told reporters on the sidelines of an event.
'The only area where there is a 50-50 competition is in fast bowling,' he added.
South Africa head into the series after a disastrous campaign in the World Cup. This will be the Porteas' first T20I series with wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock as skipper.
