Indians take more time to adapt to foreign conditions

“ Lack of practice games doesn't help when playing pace and bounce ”
“ India rarely get the luxury of practice matches ”
Vidula Menge: When the ball is bouncing a lot and offering deadly pace on unfriendly pitches, it takes more time than usual for teams to adjust, especially when you're up against a quality bowling unit. India is known for preparing dustbowls, which particularly favour spin bowlers. Hence, facing out and out pace away from home pushes the team on the back foot. Plus, when less or no practice matches are played before the start of an away series, Indians are usually a bit tentative at the beginning and take some time before softening up.
Monish Moorthy: India's situation is starkly visible because the team barely plays any practice matches to acclimatize, diving right into their international fixtures with the world watching them as they make mistakes and learn. India's 3 ODIs to begin the tour were over within the span of a week from their arrival in South Africa, as good as an ambush. But the team has already posted a higher score in the first innings at Johannesburg than the ones posted by visiting teams in the last three years to show they have caught up admirably.

More practice matches at the beginning of away tours will allow India the chance to be readier for international fixtures and they can shed the tag of being slow starters decisively.

because can time the ball properly place the ball and should concentrate but lack of practice does not help when playing pace and bounce

Yes..Indians just try to dominate in subcontinent conditions.We are uable produce pace bowlers who bowls at avg 140s with gud line and length and swing.Even in Ranji our bowlers bowls at 120s max 135.Batmans get used to that pace only. One more thing is Why indians wont play for foreign club in their environment.Before indians used play for Eng clubs why not now.is it the problem that they are earning lot in IPL.or BCCI not allowing our players to play for foreign clubs. This things need to be addressed at national level

Yes, definitely Indians take some time to adapt to foreign conditions given that they are used to playing in Indian pitches which are usually spinner friendly tracks.. So when the Indians are given a chance all of a sudden to play on tracks which has pace, bounce and also swings and seams then it does take them by surprise.. Although lately Indian youngsters are adapting to these conditions very quickly than anticipated as they get face most of the good quality bowlers in IPL matches as well as in its net practices.. So this is a good sign..
