Rabada critical with Indian pitches
South African right-arm fast bowler Kagiso Rabada is quite unhappy with the pitches they had during their last tour of India.
South Africa are all set to tour India post a disappointing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The team is among lots of criticisms and comments around the people in the game. They are in a need to bounce back from the World Cup memories and make them stronger again.
A lot of expectations on the team ahead of their tour to India. There they will also kickstart their ICC Test Championship with the Test series against India. Ahead of the tour, South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada talked about their previous tour to India. He feels a bit critical about the pitches they had during the Test series in India.
“The previous tour we were successful because we won the T20 and ODI series but the Test series was a bit of a shambles because those wickets were just terrible. If I could give an example the first Test match it was 200 v 200 in the first innings. If we batted first it was going to be a different ball game because we ended up having to chase the game. We lost 3-0 and we were truly hammered,” Rabada said.
“You need to figure out what you need to do to give the team a better chance to win, that is what I try to focus on. When you have played there before you will have an idea of what to do in certain tough situations,” he said at South Africa’s training camp here as quoted by Times LIVE.
Another big issue for South Africa in the tour will be facing the spin attack of India. Already they lost a Test series to Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka last year. Talking on that Rabada said, “On our recent tour to Sri Lanka it was tricky conditions. There is a whole lot of talk about how to approach spin but we will see how it goes.”
