India will tour South Africa for a three-Test, six-ODI and three-T20I series, starting January 5. Rajput, who was the head coach of Afghanistan, rated India's chances quite highly. "The way the Indian team is playing, they are playing tough cricket. With Virat Kohli being the leader, the aggression which he shows, seems to be imbibed in other players too and they want to win at any cost. They want to crush the opponents," the former Mumbai opener said. Asked for a prediction, Rajput replied "2-1 in India's favour", quite promptly. India have not won any Test series in South Africa thus far.
