Enjoyed facilities in Pakistan, Mark Boucher
KARACHI: South African cricket team head coach Mark Boucher has said that they are preparing for the Karachi Test starting on Tuesday. They will try to win the first Test and take the lead in the series.
Speaking at a virtual press conference, South Africa head coach Mark Boucher said that they would not like to go ahead with a loss in the opening match of the two-match Test series. Pakistan cricket is good, the host side is a combination of young and experienced players. Has prepared well against Pakistan, will not take the series easy at all, will see good matches in the series, winning the toss in the match will also be important.
Mark Boucher also said that they are used to Secure Bubble now but it is good that the series ends as soon as possible. Conditions were different when we came to play, now Pakistan’s conditions are a bit different, reverse swing is an important part of the series. Weapons may be, we have made a combination for the Karachi Test, we cannot tell about the combination yet, there may be some surprises in tomorrow’s match.
“We will go for 20 wickets in the match; we will not adopt a defensive strategy. A big score in the first innings will be very important. It is very important to play a big innings while playing first in Asia,” said Babar Azam. He is very good players, but I have not targeted a single player. I have full confidence in my players. I have learned from the previous defeats in Asia. We have had a good opportunity to prepare here. We have got good facilities.
