Former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes says there is a lack of unity in the South Africa team. He said that he had some deficiencies during the first match. These deficiencies were associated with the coaching staff in addition to the senior players. Jonty said- If you come to India, it is not just for the players who need to perform. There should be a strong back-up system as it is a long hard tour.
I think Mark Boucher played very well when we won the Test series only once in 1999 with Hansi Cronje.
As a South African player one should be prepared for this. I think Mark Boucher played very well when we won the Test series only once in 1999 with Hansi Cronje. Therefore, you have to play like a player who has a lot of changes. Jonty said it is difficult to fill the position of Stan, Amla or de Villiers. We have great fast bowlers on the side. We have people who have acquired skills, but have they visited before so the answer is no. Rhodes said – the experience is the same as what the South African players have to show here. The captain has got a new team. Therefore, I do not see a lot of positives from the South African point of view. It will be a tough tour.
