Proteas will play for pride at Ahmedabad

Indian International cricket season will end with the match to be played at my home town Ahmedabad. India will experiment with new players as they will be going into the match with six less inexperienced players at the same time Proteas will play to salvage some pride. Season has gone well for India as they lost only 3 ODIs which includes tri-series final at Dhaka and one Test against Proteas and I feel they will try to end the season with win. But if India wants to win than I think few new players have to make big contribution and this will prove that India's bench strength is good enough or not to take on International cricket. In absence of two heavy weights Sachin & Sehwag I think its difficult to win but still there are players in the team who are capable of winning matches on their own only thing required is they focus on the game like Sachin Tendulkar do. Key players for tomorrow will be Yusuf Pathan and MS Dhoni if these two guys click than India will be home provided they get little support from openers and lower order.

On the other side Proteas will try to win this match and I feel they will not experiment much with their line-up except for one or two changes and will go all out out to win this match. Its will be easier for their bowlers as they don't have bowl to Sachin or Sehwag. So I think Proteas will have upper hand. As far as Pitch is concerned, Motera wicket always helped bowlers and batsman and dew will also not be a factor here in Ahmedabad.

Something will be missing for Spectators in terms of classy stroke-making because of the absence of Sachin & Sehwag but hope that future of Indian cricket performs well in this match and make most out of this golden opportunity and create problems for selectors by providing them multiple options.
