ENG vs SA 1st Test: South African coach Mark Boucher unsure how to tackle England’s ‘Bazball’ says ‘We will try to be adaptable’

Stokes are expected to stick to the three-Test series formula against South Africa.

Boucher was asked how his team could counter him after India and New Zealand failed.

“I don’t know, I’ll tell you the same day,he said at a press conference on Monday. “We have to be adaptable in Test cricket. It’s just about finding a way to try and stop their momentum and maybe change it.

Boucher predicted smart cricket will decide the series as South Africa look to stay on track for a place in the upcoming World Test Championship final.

“We think we have played a fine brand of cricket and have played some tight series recently where we have come out on top. We want to be smart, play aggressive cricket, but you have to be smart with that as well. » he said.

“The bottom line is that this game is between bat and ball and we have to make smart decisions at certain points in the game, and we are focused on trying to do that.

“England will probably do the same, they have their mark that they want to play. We just have to try to match it on the day and try to find ways to deny it.

Boucher hopes his team’s top fast bowler, Kagiso Rabada, will be fit to play after an ankle ligament injury.

“The only concern will be the load on his body and he will have one last test today,” he said.

“I hope he will come out of it, because he is a huge player for us”, added the coach.

“For him to be in the final XI will be very special for us.”
