“Sachin was a batsman who could bat for a long time. And he put the bowlers and the opposition under pressure by batting for a long time. He was the rock for their batting. He could bat with the top-order and the middle order both,” said Morkel two days ahead of the first Test.
“These young Indian batsmen are quality players, but we can clearly see from the ODI [One-Day International] series that they are attacking batsmen who like to come at the bowling. It will be interesting to see how they go about this,” he added.
Morkel also stated that, “India is an attacking team. We know the conditions really well. We will keep it simple and the conditions are such that it will be a high scoring game and it will offer pace and bounce. I will not change my gameplan and stick to my guns of pace and bounce.”
