IND vs SA: Cheteshwar Pujara backs Indian batsmen to tackle lateral move in South Africa

Mid-level hitter Cheteshwar Pujara said that India’s current batting lineup is capable of handling the movement on pitches favorable to fast pitchers in South Africa and has no doubt that the team led by Virat Kohli will do well here. .

Pujara said recent overseas victories have boosted India’s confidence and its impact will be visible in the three-test series starting Sunday.

The Cricket Control Board in India (BCCI) posted a video on their Twitter account in which Pujara said: “When you go on tour abroad, you know there will be momentum and rebound and the ball will move at the last minute from India It is always a great challenge to go up against fast bowlers. “

“This team has learned that and we have a more balanced hitting lineup. I think we can deal with that. Looking at our preparations, I’m sure we will do well,” he said.

Pujara feels that the experience of playing in South Africa will also benefit the team. “Most of the (Indian) players have played in South Africa in the past. They are an experienced team and we know what is expected of us from a preparation point of view,” he said.

“Most teams do well in their home conditions and South Africa is no exception. They have the best bowling attack and it has always been a challenge to face one of the best fast throwers,” said Pujara.

India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after beating Australia 2-1 in the four-game series earlier in the year. They then held a 2-1 lead against England in four games on their soil. The fifth test in this series could not be performed due to Kovid-19 infection.

Pujara said: “Doing well in England and Australia will make a big difference to the confidence of this team. It gives the team the confidence that we can win overseas, we can win in any condition and in the way we shoot. And looking batting, I am very confident that we are capable of winning the series in South Africa. “

Pujara has not been able to perform consistently since 2020. He marked his final century in January 2019 in Australia. He scored two half centuries in the last 10 innings, but he knows how to hit in South African conditions.
