This year’s IPL featured a number of Proteas players, including Rabada.
Kagiso Rabada, a South African pacer, believes that the Proteas will have an advantage at the ODI World Cup in India in 2023 as a result of his participation in the IPL.
Prior to their white-ball series against Australia in August and their trip to India for the ICC event, Rabada and the Proteas are taking advantage of their time off from cricket.
South Africa has yet to claim victory in an ICC competition, so they will be hoping to do so at the World Cup in India. Numerous South African athletes participated in the IPL 2023 season, including the pacer.
Speaking to IOL, Rabada acknowledged that it can be difficult for a fast bowler to compete in India and stated that his biggest challenge will be to learn the fundamentals quickly.
The 28-year-old claimed that because they have participated in the IPL for a long time and have played in most of the venues, the Proteas will have an advantage going into the ICC tournament.
Rabada, who has participated in 89 ODIs and claimed 137 wickets in the format, said that playing on some of those wickets in India is extremely difficult for fast bowlers.
“I suppose the difficulty right now, at the age I am, is to know (and understand) the fundamental knowledge that a newbie wouldn’t know. On various wickets, you constantly seek to improve your effectiveness by learning new things. “
“It all comes down to improving your ability to read (the pitch), which goes hand in hand with the objectives you establish. Reading the conditions and using your skills work together. “
“It sounds very casual and simple to say, but it is a very rigorous and difficult process. I’m currently engaged in that process. I am standing there. “
“I do believe that we have an advantage going into the World Cup in India because we have participated in the IPL for such a long time. We’ve played on the majority of the fields, if not all of them, so we are familiar with the circumstances. ”
