Cape Town - Former
India coach and spinner Anil Kumble believes his countrymen
can create history by winning their Test series in South Africa, starting
India, who are ranked No 1 in the ICC Test rankings, take on the
Proteas in three Tests with the first match of the series scheduled for
Newlands from Friday, January 5.
The Asian side have never won a Test series in South Africa, having lost five times and drawn once.
Kumble, who was India's coach until he resigned in June this year, believes they
have the right tools to achieve success in the upcoming series.
Having taken 619 wickets in 132 Tests, Kumble was quoted as saying by
India Today: "I'm confident that the team which we have will certainly
go on to create history in South Africa and then beyond.
"That's the confidence I have. I'm sure the team under Virat (Kohli)
certainly has the capabilities to achieve that and continue all the good
work they have been doing."
