Sune Luus Speaks About Adapting to Conditions

The Proteas women arrived in India on Monday and have been busy acclimatising themselves to the extremely humid weather conditions.

The players have also been put through their paces by the technical team ahead of their warm-up match against the India President XI on Friday. 

Head Coach Hilton Moreeng has stressed the importance of adapting to local conditions ahead of the T20 International series against the fifth-ranked Indian outfit.

“Adaptability is the most important ingredient to a successful tour in India and the ladies understand that, especially our more experience campaigners. We are looking forward to a testing tour in conditions that we are unfamiliar to us, but we are optimistic of coming out with a positive result.”

Stand-in captain Sune Luus addressed the media on the eve of the first of the two warm-up matches at the Lalbhai contractor Cricket Stadium in Surat.
