Summary

  • MUMBAI: Former batsman Vinod Kambli today 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.
  • 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.
  • Ajinkya Rahane struggled to score runs during the Test series against Sri Lanka but Kambli felt that the Mumbai batsman needed just one big knock to get back his confidence.
  • About the Mumbai T20 League, Kambli felt it was a big platform for the budding cricketers from the megapolis and was a first step to get into the coveted Indian Premier League.
