Shardul Thakur is looking forward to coming up with a successful performance in ongoing India vs South Africa Test series. Shardul Thakur, who was impressed with his performances in his last two-Test series against England and Australia, seeks to contribute to the team in South Africa as well.

Shardul Thakur has made it to India’s Test squad in the previous few Test series with his incredible batting and bowling show. He was part of India’s historic 2-1 Test series victory against Australia early in January this year. Later, during the England tour, he slammed half-centuries while batting and picked crucial wickets during the tour.

“I am looking forward to it. I hope it comes off in SA too as I have been successful in England and Australia, to contribute in South African conditions, I would be more than happy,” the right-arm pacer said.

The right-handed batsman also said that for him, it is everything about confidence and self-belief and he likes to plan his game in both batting and bowling.

“I do like to plan my game in terms of both bowling and batting. When I enter the ground, everything is about confidence and self-belief for me. If you are playing white ball cricket, you think of yorker. So to bowl that yorker, I go in with full confidence which stands out for me as a player,” he further said.
