The “steep” bounce unique to South Africa is a challenge confronting India, and the team needs to be mentally prepared to counter it, according to Indian captain Virat Kohli. Speaking ahead of the second Test at Centurion on Friday, Kohli said India was better equipped to deal with the conditions that played a part in the team’s undoing at Cape Town. He called on his batsmen to “adapt” and “apply” to better India’s prospects.
He said, “One must not get surprised by the bounce here. You have to maintain composure, when you get sudden change of bounce, when you experience in South Africa. There are other pitches around the world which bounce a lot but here bounce is steep, and it can be quite steep from length also. I think those are things that you need to mentally tune yourself to get over, and adjust to, and accept that this is going to be a major part of batting in South Africa.
