The home season for the Indian side against the Proteas is all set to commence in a week’s time. The players have already reached India and engaging in practice sessions. Kagiso Rabada, the spearhead of the South African side spoke to the PTI ahead of the series.
Rabada termed Virat Kohli as one of the finest batsmen across the world. It is to be noted that a battle between them has always been a one to watch out for. Speaking on the same Rabda said, “Virat Kohli has proven that he is the best batsman in white-ball format. He is already regarded as a great of the game with some pedigree.“
The Indian skipper Virat Kohli is breaking several records since his arrival into International cricket. He is now only next to Sachin Tendulkar in the maximum number of centuries scored in ODI’s to date. Additionally, his couple of centuries in the West Indies tour have been a complete exhibition of class.
On the other hand, Rabada too rose to prominence over time. He was greatly applauded by several formers for the strength he brings to the side. However, he wasn’t at his brutal best in the world cup. He will be looking to come out all guns blazing in the upcoming series.
The Proteas series
The three-match T20I and test series will start from September 15.
Meanwhile, the visitors are in a must-win situation as they haven’t had a fruitful world cup. Even the team management is undergoing a lot of changes and huge responsibility rests on the senior players to bring the focus back on track.
Can Rabada be the trump card for the Proteas? Will he change their fortunes?
