Although Christmas is just a few weeks away, a sense of anticipation has engulfed India’s festive season, at least for now. Teams, irrespective of formidability, have no doubt been trampled at home during recent times. The final logistics of the long process of transition was apparently complete with the lately concluded series against West Indies. Well-deserved goodbyes were bid and rich tributes paid. The focus now turns to the next generation; to their on-field capabilities. The time to put to test the newly, but meticulously, developed battalion, soon commences, and first up is an opposition that perhaps houses some of the best players in the world at the moment.
