New Delhi,septmber 15: Promising that India will not back down from their "aggressive brand of cricket", team director Ravi Sastri feels consistency and patience would be key to success as the hosts gear up to face South Africa next month.
"South Africa are the No 1 team in the world. We have to play consistent cricket for long periods of time to put them under pressure. That will be the endeavour. Our style of play will not change," said Shastri, who was retained as team director after India registered a historic Test series win in Sri Lanka
India and South Africa square off for the first time in a four-Test series, in addition to playing five ODIs and three T20s. The tour begins with a T20 International match at Dharamsala on October 2.
