In this video we can see Indian batter Rohit Sharma saying that although Indian pace attack lacks experience but all the three Indian pace bowlers are talented and know how to bowl on home tracks. This gives them a slight advantage over South African bowlers who are not used to bowling on subcontinent pitches and even they lack experience. Later, in this video we can see South African middle-order batter Farhaan Behardien praising South Africa’s coach and giving him credit for helping all the players for preparation for tour to India (India vs South Africa 2015 series). Behardien said that every team has its strengths and weaknesses like Australia have four or five bowlers who can bowl at 90 mph. “Even we have bowlers who can bowl at 90 mph, similarly India have four quality spinners. So we prepare accordingly; even I have prepared differently since subcontinent pitches are different.” VIDEO: Farhaan Behardien feels it’s fine to have different captains for different formats

Behardien believes that South Africa is not at a disadvantage in this series even though they are playing in spin conditions. Disadvantages should be taken up as challenges and should be converted into advantages and wins. “I would say playing against India’s quality spin bowlers is a challenge. Running between the wickets will be important and batters must learn to convert singles into doubles; this is important esp. in the middle overs. From a bowler’s point of view we can predict certain pockets on the field.” According to the 31-year-old, South Africa must take one match at a go. “The first T20I at Dharamsala was special since more than 400 runs were scored in 40 odd overs. Some rest after the game is important and an important game plan is needed to play in further games.” Farhaan Behardien: AB de Villiers will continue to open in subcontinent
