Warm-up against India is a big game for us: David Miller
South African hard-hitting batsman David Miller believes said that the side has done pretty well in the shortest format in the last 12-18 months and even though they lost the recent series against Australia it was a “good preparation” for the WorldT20. When asked about the recent 2-1 series loss to Australia in South Africa, Miller said, “The mood was pretty good, they (Australia) beat us 2-1 but it was a good preparation just before the the World Cup, not ideal losing against Australia, but I believe we have done really well over the last 12-18 months...as a T20 side,” said Miller here today.
“And the confidence is really good and we are sticking to a good game plan, the guys are playing accordingly in their certain roles...everyone knows in T20 you can win some and lose some.. we have been pretty consistent, we need to pitch up to each game in the world cup and take it seriously,” the 26-year-old player told reporters at the open media session.
Echoing views of many pundits, he said India are favourites being the local side.
“This game (against India at the Wankhede stadium) is a big game, a warm up game, we want to win that game,” he said. Miller said that the South African players were pretty familiar to the conditions in India. “Pretty familiar with the conditions (in India), the place we go to, that has helped a lot and obviously coming from a tour to India, been here few times and I enjoy it,” he says.
