Centurion: Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday sought to take the positives from India's 0-2 ODI series loss against South Africa, saying that playing limited overs format first would help his side do better in dealing with pace and bounce in the Test series starting December 18.
"Playing the ODIs before the Tests is good to get used to the pace and bounce. That is the positive we can take from the ODI series," Dhoni said after the third and final one-dayer was washed out due to rains at the innings break. (Highlights)
Electing to bat, South Africa scored an imposing 301 for eight in their allotted 50 overs, riding on Quinton de Kock's 101 and captain A B de Villiers' 109, before rains denied India to go for the run chase. (Match abandoned due to rain)
