Aiden Markram Looks Forward to Face Indian Challenge in the India vs South Africa Test Series 2019
Vijiyanagram, September 26: South Africa batsman Aiden Markram believes his team might be carrying "a bit of baggage" from their last trip to India, but they will not harp on about the conditions when they face Virat Kohli's men in the three-match Test series beginning October 2. The Proteas suffered a 0-3 loss in the Test series last time they toured India in 2015. It was also their first overseas series loss since 2006. Markram was only 20 and had not yet made his international debut in 2015. From Faf Du Plessis to Kagiso Rabada, 5 Proteas Players Who Can Upset Virat Kohli and Co at Home.
"I remember watching that series a few years ago and it looked incredibly difficult," ESPNcricinfo quoted Markram as saying. "I'm sure there's a bit of baggage that certain players that were on that tour might still be carrying but that's completely fine. I think it's never an easy tour coming to anywhere in the subcontinent, let alone India. It's full of challenges, but if we can conquer those challenges it will be really rewarding."
