New Delhi | Team India’s next encounter with South Africa in World Cup will be a tough battle as Proteas were far better than arch-rivals Pakistan, feels legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
The batting legend also said India would need a strong opening partnership and should be careful in running between the wickets to beat the tournaments favorite South Africa on coming Sunday.
It wont be so easy to pick singles, as they (South Africa) are much faster, their throwing arm is more powerful and in their out-fielding they cover the area much better than Pakistan, Tendulkar told a TV channel.
Tendulkar further backed India opener Rohit Sharma to come good at the World Cup, despite managing just 15 runs against Pakistan. I wouldn’t put any pressure on Rohit. Next time you’ll get it right, said Tendulkar.
