Smith expecting tough Test series for batsmen in SA

Sandra Phillips | 30 January, 2018, 19:10

It was foolish to drop Bhuvneshwar Kumar after the seamer took six wickets in the first match at Cape Town. Having said that, the team can still manage to optimistic since there have been quite a few new additions to the squad.

He's also added another string to his bow to make the South African attack an even more frightening prospect. He noted that he give the same amount of effort to the game irrespective of the format. When no one is believing in you, no one's backing you, it's very important to back yourselves as individuals. Also, in between a five-Test series, if there is a gap between any two Tests, two-day games must be played.

Back in coloured uniform, the Mumbaikar is now focussed on guiding his team to win the ODI series. It's a 50-over game, so you get time.

"I think it's going to be a really exciting series". While it worked with the bat on one occasion, Pandya resembled a player who could do with some role definition. "I'm here to make an impact in the series", he said. But it is a long series; it is a six-match series.

Pakistan have won more Test matches than they have lost. "We can not think too far ahead", said the Indian vice-captain.

As India sealed a sensational victory in the final Test against South Africa at Johannesurg, the boys made a decision to celebrate the win in style.It was one of the most hard pitches in recent times and India showed great guts to fight it out in conditions which were favourable to the hosts with pace and bounce.However, leading the celebrations was coach Ravi Shastri as he was seen enjoying a cold beverage, in an image he shared on his Twitter. "Fringe players and out of form players can get a chance". This month's series saw the Proteas employ Philander as an all-rounder, batting him at No.7 so they could fit in four more specialist bowlers into the XI.

"There are two things into it". "To take 60 wickets in a series, we have never done it away from home. It does matter because the lengths that you bowl in India and the lengths that you bowl overseas are slightly different", Rohit pointed out.

This was the first time that 120 wickets had been collected by bowlers in a three-Test series.

Of Tests that produced a positive result, there have been only three others since the Second World War that were totally spin-free: the first Test of the 1981 Ashes series, at Trent Bridge; New Zealand v Pakistan in Dunedin in 1984-85; and England v West Indies at Headingley in 1988. Roy Fredericks showed batsmen how to blunt pace bowling way back in 1975 when he famously bludgeoned Australia's Lillee, Thomson and Gilmour at the then lightning fast Perth pitch, thrashing 169 off only 145 balls, as the bowlers kept targeting his body with short balls and Fredericks hooked and pulled them mercilessly and magnificently in retaliation. Barring one odd defeat against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy, the team has done exceedingly well. Du Plessis, AB De Villiers, Dean Elgar et al will help keep them grounded, and South Africa have a strong blend of youth and experience, and greater continuity than England, so they will be a real threat.

The debate about playing six batsmen as opposed to seven will be the main topic of discussion when Australia arrive here for four Tests at the end of February. That was a little disappointing. I hope I can continue and put the team in a good situation.
