Rahul Dravid: Dravid admitted that it will be a tough tour.
Rahul Dravid on gameplan for batsmen Against South Africa: The Indian cricket team is currently on a tour of South Africa. On the tour of South Africa, India has to play three T20 Internationals, three ODIs and two Test matches. While this T20 series is important for next year's T20 World Cup, the Test series is part of the World Test Championship. The Indian team has not won any Test series on South African soil, so India's eyes will be on creating history this time. At the same time, coach Rahul Dravid has got a contract extension after the ICC ODI World Cup. Rahul Dravid is ready for the Africa tour after the contract. This tour will start with the T20 series. After that there will be ODIs, this will be the last Test match. Dravid analysed the challenge of South Africa and admitted that it will be a tough tour for the Indian team.
Before the start of the tour of South Africa, Indian team head coach Rahul Dravid said on Star Sports' program Follow the Blues Live that it is difficult to bat there. During this, he also revealed about the game plan during the series against South Africa. "So, it's a challenging place to bat, the stats will tell you that. It is one of the most difficult places to bat, especially in Centurion and Johannesburg. Wickets impress a bit. And they go up and down as well. Every batsman will have a game plan of how they want to go, as long as they are clear about it and they are committed to it and practicing for it, that's fine. We don't expect everyone to play the same way."
"We want them to be clear about what works for them, and then be able to execute on it. Boy, once they get there, a lot of them are mental, and I think, you know, we try and insist on it.
Let me tell you, the first match of the T20 series between India and South Africa is to be played on December 10. After this, the second T12 match of the series will be played on December 20. The last T20 match of the series will be played on 14 December. The two countries will then face each other in a three-match ODI series. The first match of the ODI series will be played on December 17, the second on December 19 and the third on December 21. The Test series between India and South Africa will begin on December 26, while the second match will be played from January <>.
