Cape Town: Assistant coach Sanjay Bangar on Thursday said the conditions or oppositions don’t matter and India are confident of their preparation ahead of the first cricket Test against South Africa beginning here on Friday.
“We are very, very confident about our preparation because we got four-five days here before the first Test. And out of those days, we made sure we got plenty out of it. All the boys are in a positive state of mind,” the 45-year-old told reporters here.
“It is a Test match and it is no different from any other Test match that we play wherein the opposition skills are taken into account. We really focus on our own inward processes, how our mental approach is and how our mindset is in terms of batting rhythm where we stand.
“So the opposition doesn’t really matter nor do the conditions. What we are feeling as a batting group is what matters more and we work towards achieving that sort of level that we desire to,” Bangar added.
