Jones, Dujon put their money on Indian team

New Delhi: Former Australian batsman Dean Jones and Jeff Dujon, ex-wicketkeeper of the West India, tried their hand at Golf on Tuesday at the DLF Golf and Country Club.

The two played golf along with some of the most popular women golfers from around the world in the Pro-Am of the DLF Women's Indian Open.

Jones, with over 9000 runs in international cricket, has a golf handicap of -3 and follows the sport very keenly.

In India, as part of the Indian Cricket League commentary team, both Jones and Dujon are confident the hosts will start as favourites against South Africa in the three-Test series beginning on Wednesday.

"India are going to be the favourite for sure. After beating the Aussies in the Commonwealth Bank Series, they have got the confidence, which is everything at that level. I think that South Africa would be competitive though," Jones said.

"I don't really think South Africans are particularly good players of spin. I think the Indian spinners are going to get the better of them. The Indian team obviously from their performance in the past few weeks is very confident. I expect it is going to be a very good series, a very hard fought one," Dujon hoped.
