New Delhi, September 9

South Africa’s pace spearhead Kagiso Rabada feels the upcoming T20 and Test series against India is a chance for his embattled team to figure where it stands against the world’s best in a tough transition journey. 

The Proteas will be playing three T20Is starting September 15 followed by three Tests against India. They arrived with a relatively young team in which Rabada and skipper Quinton de Kock are the two most experienced players. 

“The goal is to compare ourselves with the best. India have been a successful team over the years. There’s been some changes and our team is now a lot younger. It’s a challenge for those who haven’t played here earlier,” acknowledged Rabada, who has already played over 100 international games across formats.

Test c’ship in mind: Shastri

Dubai: India coach Ravi Shastri said that with points at stake World Test Championship is a serious business. “We are playing at home (against South Africa) and it is the World Test Championship — so now there is even more reason on why you have to play the way you should. There are now points to be accumulated. We are the No. 1 team in the world and we have been for the last three years, so there is pride at stake as well,” Shastri said. — PTI
