INDIA BATSMAN Shreyas Iyer believes that his side will bounce back in the upcoming six-match ODI series against South Africa after being thrashed 2-0 in the first two Tests.
Ahead of the ODI series, Virat Kohli’s men will get into the third Test at Johannesburg from January 24. As reported by PTI, Iyer said,
“We will also look to come back strongly. We have not won the Test series so will look to bounce back strongly.”
The promising youngster also reckoned that wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni will also bolster the limited-overs side.
“MS is coming back. He has led the Indian team previously. He’s a great finisher, looking forward to the ODI series. We would look to win the ODI series. That would be my target.”
The 23-year-old said that he had done his homework for the bouncy tracks in South Africa.
“Since I was injured after the Sri Lanka tour, I was watching the matches and they have bouncy and seaming pitches. My preparation would be to play the ball on merit and to be on backfoot more rather than playing on front foot. In India the ball does not climb so much as compared to South African wickets. To stay as much positive as possible and progress in my innings. After going there I will set a goal for myself and see to it that I achieve that goal.”
