In a chat with NDTV, Gavaskar said, “India is firing on all cylinders. It’s batting is looking good. The bowling has got a sharp to edge to it and the fielding is outstanding. I believe India has the potential to win the series for the first time in South Africa.The crucial thing they are peaking at the right time. So I am hopeful that this time India will put one across the Proteas.”

Though the cricketer abstained from comparing this team with the teams of the past, he did say that the current unit has really good balance. “It is difficult to compare, depends on the opposition, playing conditions. But this is one which is right up there because of the balance they have. This team may be the best India has ever produced.”
