Around that time there will be a lot of dew, so it will be vital to win the toss. We will still try to give our best in the series," said Dhoni on Monday.<br /> <br /> On the performance of the young Indian team in Zimbabwe and South Africa, the 32-year-old said the experience will help them when India tours South Africa in November.<br /> <br /> "The exposure the boys are getting in <a href="/tags/Zimbabwe/post" target="_blank">Zimbabwe</a> and <a href="/tags/South-Africa/post" target="_blank">South Africa</a> will help them in the long run. It will help them when they take on a quality opposition like South Africa later this year. They have done really well and the experience will help them in adjusting to conditions better," added Dhoni.<br /> <br /> India recently won the bilateral series against Zimbabwe 5-0 while India A won a tri-series against Australia A and South Africa A last week.
