Mark Boucher says “Home series against India an opportunity” in T20 World Cup. Boucher has already set his sights on a home series against India. Also, aiming to make significant strides against them. India will begin their all-format sojourn of South Africa. From the 17th of December with the three-match Test series. For the first time, India will travel to South Africa. They’ve been on the road since early 2018 when they finished a fairly successful tour. The ODI and T20 series were won by Virat Kohli. They were defeated in the Test series. Visitors, and from the other side, would have a high level of confidence. Following victories in Australia and England.
Moreover, Boucher doesn’t expect South Africa to enjoy a perfect series. Against India and a vastly improved side overseas. The Proteas improving side with a few loopholes, Boucher hopes to create something special.
“Unscathed is a particularly interesting word to use, but we’re playing an India team at home that’s up there with the world’s best. If you look at where we are as a Test group, we’re still growing and we’re still trying to find our feet with certain positions. It’s going to be a good challenge and a good test for us. We did well in the West Indies, but we haven’t played a Test at home in a while,” Mark Boucher said.
‘It’s not about getting unscathed, but going out there with an opportunity to do something special and beat India. If we don’t, we’ll obviously learn the lessons and come out as a better cricket team,” Boucher added.
Lastly, India came close in 2006-07 in South Africa. And drew in 2010-11, followed by losing in 2013-14 and the 2017-18 leg. However, their recent progress gives them the best chance to record. In their first Test series on South African. Also, the progress comes made through an aggressive captain. As well as a terrific bowling unit, and magnificent depth.
