Leave outside off-stump deliveries: Borde to Indian batsmen

Pune: Former batsman Chandu Borde has some advice for the Indian batsmen who struggled in the first Test in South Africa - stay a bit outside the crease and leave the balls pitched outside the off-stump.

India were crushed by 72 runs in the first Test at Cape Town as the visiting batsmen failed to chase a modest 208 target after being shot out for 135 to give South Africa a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Borde also exuded confidence that the Virat Kohli-led side would bounce back in the second Test starting at Centurion today. "First thing is to stay there on the wicket, which is important, and particularly to leave the ball that is pitched outside the off stump. Many of our batsmen were either caught behind or were caught in the slips," Borde told PTI.

"Therefore they should change their technique in such a way that anything that pitches outside the off stump, they should try and leave in the beginning and once you get set to that bounce and pace then play the shots," said the 83-year- old Borde who was among the finest Indian batsmen of his era against pace bowling. Borde, a former Chairman of national selectors, also advised the Indian batsman to "Another thing I would suggest is that instead of standing in the crease, they should stand outside the crease at least by 6 inches and meet the ball earlier and do not allow it to swing more," he said.
