Bangladesh Has Experienced Players Than Proteas: VVS Laxman
India recently won the Test series against South Africa. It was an easy win for India as was playing with inexperienced players. Most of the major players were missing in the Proteas team. Former Indian cricket VVS Laxman opined that series for India will be a tough one.
Proteas were not able to read the Indian conditions. All the departments of the visitors were weak. The bowlers were not able to halt the Indian batters to score runs. They were also not able to reach the total set by the host. Indian bowlers picked the wickets at regular intervals which halted the visitors to reach the set total.
They will give a tough fight: Laxman
VVS Laxman expressed that the upcoming Bangladesh series, which India will play next month, will be tough to win. He opined that Bangladesh is much-experienced side than the present South Africa team. So, according to him, India should prepare for it.
“I feel India versus Bangladesh series is going to be a competitive one. The Bangladesh squad is more experienced than the current South Africa team and most of the Bangladesh players are also in good form. Bangladesh team has grown over the years and cannot be taken lightly considering they always give a tough fight to the Indian team in T20Is,” Laxman said on a show for the official broadcaster.
