India is scheduled to play South Africa in three Tests, six ODIs, and three T20Is, with the first Tests starting from January 5 in Cape Town.
The men in blue have never managed to win a Tests series in South Africa, but coach Shastri is confident that Virat Kohli and his team are capable of turning things around this time.
"If South Africa tour happens to be tough for our batsmen, our job will be to make it tougher for their batsmen," Shastri had told reporters ahead of team's departure from Mumbai.
Team India practiced indoors on Sunday due to rain in Cape Town, Indian skipper Virat Kohli had earlier said after the outdoor practice session, "If you look at the wicket that we are practicing on right now then it is not even 15 per cent of what we are going to get in the game so we understand that. There is no point wasting two days in which guys go out and score quick fifties and come out. We would rather have them do two sessions like today and get into the Test match zone and test ourselves. We can try and prepare the wicket the way we want to but if you are playing a two-day game then there is no room for changing the wicket at different times of the day," he had said.
