The couple is now in South Africa where the Indian cricket team is playing a Test series. Talking about the Indian team not being used to playing on bouncy pitches, the captain said that the team has accepted the fact that the wicket will hold many surprises for the Indian players and the key is to believe in their abilities and take the bowlers head-on.
Bhuvneshwar, who is primarily known for his swing, feels that the Kookaburra "does not do much after 25-30 overs", making it imperative for him to strike early. "Since there was a little bit of juice in the wicket, our wicket-keeper too was feeling a little bit of pace which are bowlers were generating".
"We have not talked so far about the strategy". May be a couple of days before the first Test, we will see how to strategize according to the batsman. But the team has been in excellent form over the past two years, winning every series in that period and reclaiming the top spot in the Test rankings in the process.
Virat and Anushka are now together in South Africa ringing in New Year's celebration. After that, the two teams will play a six-match ODI and three-game T20I series in February.
"Yesterday, we did two sessions to get into the Test mode". What are the things we can bring into the Test, regarding strategies, regarding their batsmen. "I can pick reverse swing from Umesh, Ishant and Shami and they can pick swing from me".
In a video, uploaded on Twitter by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the Test debutant spoke about his transition from white ball to red ball, meanwhile also speaking about India's first practice session. "But yes, like I said, we have to be at our best to win the series here", he said.
When asked, he did not have much to say on Shikhar Dhawan's injury.
