seales said It was just about being consistent

It was just about being consistent and trying to figure out the right lengths to cause batsmen problems. Here in South Africa, we know the ball will bounce a lot more than in the West Indies, so we didn’t want the batsmen leaving a lot of balls… what we wanted was to have them playing a lot more,”

Seales said after the day’s play.

This three-match series here is very important for me. I got injured in Australia last so I would like to have a good tour here and make the team back to Australia for the Test series (in January 2024). Where I would like to redeem myself and perform to the level that I know I am capable of.”
