Watch | South Africa vs Sri Lanka: Bowling in partnerships key, says Abbott
South African seam bowler Kyle Abbott says bowling in partnerships will be a key game plan for success in the first Test match against Sri Lanka starting at St George’s Park on December 26. Abbott expects a ‘scrappy’ effort in the traditionally drier conditions in Port Elizabeth, where patience and pressure will be the focus. The fast bowling trio of Abbott, Vernon Philander and Kagiso Rabada shared 40 wickets during the three-match Test series against Australia last month, and have grown in the understanding of their roles by complementing each other with their different skills sets.
