On Wednesday (December 15), Indian Test captain Virat Kohli also opened up on various recent developments in Indian cricket via a press conference before India's departure for South Africa. During the presser, Kohli also opened up on not having Jadeja for the SA Tests. In this regard, he told, "Jadeja has obviously been a very important player for us. He contributes in all three departments of the game, which is invaluable, especially in overseas conditions. He will obviously be missed. But having said that, we do have quality in the side to be able to create the best combination possible on the field for us and still be in situations or positions to win Test matches."

India's tour of South Africa will commence on December 26 with the first Test to take place in Centurion. The last two Tests will be followed by three ODIs, starting from January 19.
