Centurion, Jan 12 (CNMSPORTS) Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Friday said the batsmen must not get surprised by the challenges offered by the bouncy wickets during the South African tour.
Kohli also said that reading bounce will be the key factor during the Proteas tour.
"We must not get surprised by the bounce here. We have to maintain composure when you get sudden change of bounce, which you experience in South Africa, Kohli told reporters here.
"Here the bounce can be steep from length also. You need to mentally tune yourself to these things and accept that it is going to be a major part of batting in South Africa," he added.
The Delhi batsmen also slammed the critics regarding their view on the selection of Ajinkya Rahane.
Before the start of the first Test in Cape Town, cricket experts were asking about Ajinkya Rahane's exclusion from the playing XI. But after India lost the first game, now many of those wanted Rahane in the playing eleven.
