India has dominated the first Test so far, but they still need 3 more wickets on day 5 to secure the win and take the series lead. After a batting disaster in their 2nd innings, Kohli’s team set a challenging goal of 305 for the hosts to chase. South African bowler Kagiso Rabada, on the other hand, believes his squad can succeed. Here is all about what Kagiso Rabada Speaks About Indian Bowlers.

Whereas the SA bowler took 3 wickets in the 1st innings in the Centurion Test, he then took 4 in the 2nd. When questioned if his team still could win the Test, he said they could if they showed confidence and carefully planned their technique. He also praised his skipper, Dean Elgar, for his relentless and uninterrupted performance of 52 at stumps on day 4.
“Definitely. We have just got to show belief. Strategize overnight and see how to approach this. Every sportsman has got to believe. Dean is doing his best for his team, his country, and himself. He is leading from the front. He has done it countless times,” said Kagiso Rabada.
The 26-year-old, on the other hand, was taken aback by India’s pace assault. He talked positively of them and praised the pacers from the visiting team. The speedster admired their abilities as well.

“They got some quality bowlers. (Mohammed) Shami and (Jasprit) Bumrah are very experienced and (Mohd) Siraj has been bowling well in the recent past. They have a good attack, they got pace and they have got skills. They are showing why they are a good attack,” he said. The South African pace attack’s commander then spoke about debutant Marco Jansen. He described the youngster’s bowling approach.
“He (Jansen) is a phenomenal talent. He is an awkward customer to face. There is swing, bounce, and pace coming at you. In the (Indian) second innings, he justified his selection…he seems like he wants to learn. He is a hard worker. He is really keen on doing well for his team and himself,” said Rabada.
