DHARAMSHALA – The Proteas are keen to get their tour of India off to a winning start as they gear up for their first T20 international encounter against their hosts at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala on Sunday.
The tour consists of three matches across three different venues (Dharamshala, Mohali and Bangalore) that boast different conditions, but David Miller believes that the team is more than up to the challenge.
He is backing the experience that each team member has of playing in India in their different capacities either from a national or South Africa A or emerging team perspective.
“A lot of the guys have played for the A side and have recently been over here playing cricket before we arrived,” Miller said during the pre-match press conference on Saturday.
“A lot of the guys have played in India before even if it’s not necessarily for South Africa but for the A side and other groups that have come here, so they are experienced in playing in these conditions. Looking at the three venues that we’re playing at, I think they are going to be good conditions. We’ve prepped really well and I think the guys are just really eager to go out there and play good cricket.
