Proteas skipper Quinton de Kock has said that he thinks Pakistan is a lot of dangerous side when they played on their home ground they will not going to play like in New Zealand.
Quinton de Kock added to his statement that,
“Our own side is unfamiliar with local conditions as well as Pakistan’s spin-oriented attack could be a threat in the upcoming Test series for us.”
The young skipper further added to his statement,
“It’s not easy to play any team on their home ground,”
“We do realize that Pakistan won’t be an easy opponent on their own turf. It won’t be the same team that we saw in New Zealand. Home conditions and Babar Azam’s return will certainly add to their strength.”
“Most of our cricketers, including me, do not have any idea of the conditions here which could prove to be a challenge,” he said. “However, Mark Boucher has toured here before so we are picking his brains.”
Mohammad Wasim Pakistan’s chief selector named a new-look squad for the series including plenty of spin options and new players. De Kock is aware of what their hosts could be cooking.
He further added,
“After seeing three spinners in Pakistan’s squad we have an idea what kind of wickets we could find here,”
“We are aware that spinners could be a threat to our batting here.”
The first test match between Pakistan and South Africa will be played on 26 January.
