Considering all this, South Africa’s wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock revealed that he wants his team to prepare for the worst. The aggressive batsman who is set to lead the T20I side in the absence of Faf du Plessis added that the white-ball cricket is different, but India might dish out similar pitches in the longest format of the game.
Moreover, de Kock believes that South Africa were caught off guard in the last tour, but now they are mentally prepared to play on the tracks assisting spin very early in the game. It is important to note that the first test commencing from October 2 will start South Africa’s journey in the ICC World Test Championship 2019 where the home team already sits on the top of the points table securing 120 points after recently drubbing West Indies 2-0.
