Rabada has South Africa's past experience to thrive in India
PRETORIA: South Africa pacemaker Kagiso Rabada on Wednesday he said his team will seek to use the past experience of playing in the subcontinent when they face India in the next tasks.
The Proteas are scheduled to play three T20s and so many Tests against India.
You must discover what you must do so that the team has a better chance of winning, that is what I try to focus on. When you've played there before, you'll have an idea of what to do in certain difficult situations, he said in the South African training camp.
South Africa had won the T20 and ODI series, but lost the tests during its last tour of India.
The previous tour was successful because we won the T20 and ODI series, but the Test series was a bit complicated because those wickets were simply terrible, Rabada said.
If I could give an example, the first test match was 200 v 200 in the first innings. If we hit first, it would be a different ball game because we ended up having to chase the game. We lost 3-0 and we were really hit.
When asked how they would approach bowling during the tour, Rabada said: On our recent tour to Sri Lanka, they were difficult conditions. There is much talk about how to approach the spin but we will see how it goes.
What helps is that there are boys who have played there in the past and I think what you can do is use what worked and what didn't work during the tour of Sri Lanka to have a base.
When you go there for the first time it is strange and you don't know what to do. If you look at how Faf (Du Plessis) batted in Sri Lanka, he had good starts, which showed that he had played there and knew the conditions.
