SA to continue pace barrage

SA to continue pace barrage

If Ottis Gibson gets his way -- as coach and a selector he has a big say -- South Africa will continue to challenge India with a four-pronged fast bowling attack in the two remaining Tests.

"When you are playing at home you play to your strengths and at the moment we have some high-quality fast bowlers," said Gibson.  

"I'm a very fast bowling-minded kind of coach," said former West Indies player, explaining why two fast bowlers, Duanne Olivier and Lungi Ngidi, had been added to an already big squad following a series-ending heel injury to Dale Steyn.

"If you want to beat the best team in the world, which India are, then maybe we have to do something slightly different to what we've done in the past," said Gibson.
