South Africa will play against India in the upcoming T20 and Test series. Kagiso Rabada, the South African pacer, knows how to bowl in the sub-continent have toured in the past. He was phenomenal for Delhi Capitals in the last edition of the Indian Premier League.

“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.

His team was victorious in the ODI and T20 series but lost the Test comprehensively in 2015.

“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” he added.

“If I could give an example the first Test match it was 200 v 200 in 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.”

He also spoke about spin-friendly conditions in India and other sub-continent nations.

“When you go there for the first time its weird and you don’t know what to do. If you look at how Faf (Du Plessis) batted in Sri Lanka he got good starts which showed that he had played there and knew the conditions.”
