CAPE TOWN – It seems it is not only the Springboks who are experiencing extreme weather conditions in their bid to acclimatise at the Rugby World Cup in Japan, but so too the Proteas in India.
The Proteas arrived early in Dharamshala for Sunday’s first T20I to ensure a largely new crop of players become accustomed to the unique subcontinent conditions.
Only David Miller and Kagiso Rabada in the current T20 squad were involved in the Proteas’ memorable seven-wicket victory here in the picturesque northern town when JP Duminy’s unbeaten 68 from just 34 balls helped the visitors chase down a daunting 200 two years ago.
Great start to the tour of India last night with dinner with the High Commissioner of South Africa, His Excellency, Mr Sbu Ndebele and his wonderful staff & their families. It’s great to know our boys will have a few familiar faces to look out for on match days. #ProudlySA 🇿🇦 pic.twitter.com/iujr20WKNp— Cricket South Africa (@OfficialCSA) September 9, 2019
