IND vs SA | Rahul determined for Tests in South Africa
India’s Rahul was seen talking about the test matches in South Africa. He said that he is aware of the challenges that they might face during the upcoming test series. Also, India has never won any test in SA. However, he came to the conclusion that India has performed so well during England and Australia matches. Therefore, there are pretty enough chances for India to get the victory during the SA test.
“The pace and bounce in the pitches here is very different to every other country,” Rahul told reporters on Friday. “That is why it was important we came here earlier to try to adjust to the conditions.
“We’ve had a lot of sessions in the middle to create match situations and practiced with a lot of intensity. It has been a great week of preparation.
“The pitches can be challenging because of the ‘tennis ball’ bounce. When we played in Australia they are fast and bouncy, but here it can be a bit spongy in the first few days, and then it starts to quicken up. “South Africa is an exciting place to play cricket and comes as a challenge for both batters and bowlers.”
“You need to be a lot more focussed and disciplined in your mind here, and be a lot more patient and wait to score your runs,” Rahul said.
“It is a huge series for us as a team,” Rahul added. “We have won in England and Australia, but we have not won a series here and that gives us extra motivation. We need to learn from mistakes in the last tour and do better this time.”
