IND vs SA South Africa captain Dean Elgar tied a jumper in praise of Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the test series


  • Elgar has described Bumrah as a world-class bowler.
  • Bumrah made her test debut on the 2018 tour of South Africa.
  • The first test between India and South Africa will be played from December 26.

South Africa test team captain Dean Elgar has praised Indian fast pitcher Jasprit Bumrah ahead of the three-game test series. Elgar says Bumrah can take advantage of helpful pitches from fast bowlers in South Africa. When the India team last visited South Africa in 2018, Bumrah made his testing debut during that time. However, that series was lost by India 1-2.

Bumrah has made a place for himself among the best bowlers in the world by consistently performing over the years. In such a situation, Elgar acknowledged the danger of Bumrah in an online press conference and said that it would be difficult for his team to face the full Indian attack.

“He (Bumrah) is a world-class bowler. If there is a bowler who can take advantage of the conditions in South Africa well, that would be Bumrah. But we are not focusing on one player. Overall, India is a strong team.

“India has been a very good team for the last two or three years and they have done well overseas in recent years,” Elgar said.

Elgar said veteran bowler Ravichandran Ashwin hasn’t had much success in South Africa, but is one of the best spinners in world cricket. The South African captain said: “Indian bowling has improved a lot on overseas tours. We have to be very careful against the bowling attack that we are going to play against.

South Africa suffered a major setback ahead of the series opener. Its main pitcher Enrique Norcia has been ruled out due to injury. Kagiso Rabada will lead the bowling attack alongside Duane Oliver. He has returned to play for South Africa following the termination of Kolpak’s deal with Great Britain. Lungi Ngidi will also be on the team. Elgar is hopeful that the time clears before the series opener and the pitch will help the fast players.

“There is always some humidity on the grounds of South Africa. Especially in the highveld zone (altitude zone). I don’t see much change (from the last series). As a hitter, if you are disciplined and show your skills, you can score runs in Centurion.

When asked about the inexperience of the team’s batting lineup, he said: “Professional cricket is about seizing the opportunity for you. If you don’t, another player is ready to take the place. But playing against the best. The world’s team is always tough, they have a very strong bowling attack and we know that.
