"Look, whatever else happens, we'll always be a good team to watch. It's never dull when we're around,"
- Indian coach John Wright.

"And Harbhajan Singh and Anil Kumble bowling together is a big plus point for us. Don't think we're only about batting,"
- Indian vice-captain Rahul Dravid.

"The problem with India is that their performance fluctuates. One minute they are doing well which raises expectation and the next they are performing badly,"
- Former South African skipper Kepler Wessels.

"India are not a side to be taken lightly. Although they have not had much success when they have toured SA in the past, they have shown over the last few series that they are playing pretty good cricket,"
- Herschelle Gibbs in his column for the BBC.

"I've put on an eight and a half and have not found joy but I believe I will settle for a size eight as that's given me the best feel so far,"
- Sachin Tendulkar on his special shoes to alleviate the pain on his right foot.

"India will struggle to bowl the South Africans out twice to win a Test. I'm looking forward to Tendulkar hitting Klusener into retirement,"
- a cricket fan from England in BBC's Sports Talk.

"I remember him in Nairobi (the ICC mini World Cup) last year and he was the same Donald I have known all these years - lovely variations and pacey as ever,"
- Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly assessing the bowler he feels would be India's biggest threat.

"The Indian captain is neither in form or fit himself. How is he going to lead by example,"
- the former Indian captain Bishan Singh Bedi on Sourav Ganguly.

"It might be quite interesting to see whether Harbhajan can get the same response on our pitches. If he's going to be good he's going to have to bowl well on our pitches,"
- former South African captain Clive Rice on India's ace off-spinner.

"Pollock hasn't been under real pressure yet because he hasn't been in too many tight corners. I think the test of his captaincy will come when South Africa plays Australia,"
- Kepler Wessels talking to the BBC.
