Positive & aggressive attitude will be key in SA: Kambli

Former batsman Vinod Kambli said positive and aggressive attitude with the bat will be key to India’s success on the bouncy tracks of South Africa.

India are set to tour South Africa early next year to play three Tests, six ODIs and three T20s, with the first Test scheduled at Cape Town from January 5.

“It will be about the technique and the approach towards the game. There will be bouncy tracks and they (South African bowlers) will come at you. So the more aggressively and positively you play will be the best thing to do in South Africa,” Kambli told.

“I had learnt when I played as professional that you have to play aggressively and positively. No matter whatever the situation is, just play your best,” he added.

Kambli said the way the Indian team is playing currently, it will do well in South Africa.

“I am very confident that our team will do well (in South Africa), the way they are playing and the way they are winning. We have got the batting line up. Though it will be a challenge for Virat (Kohli) and the team,” said Kambli at sidelines of a function, where Mumbai Cricket Association announced its inaugural Mumbai T20 League from January 4 to 9.

Kambli was the first Indian batsman in Test matches to score two consecutive double hundreds in the 1990s, a feat which was equalled by skipper Virat Kohli when he scored two back-to-back double tons against Sri Lanka in the just- concluded Test series.
