Harmer believes `patience with ball` key to success in sub-continent

Johannesburg, July 20 (ANI): South African off-spinner Simon Harmer has insisted that patience with the ball will be a key factor during the upcoming two-match Test series against Bangladesh, which starts in Chittagong from Tuesday.

The 26-year-old, who will tour Bangladesh for the first time, believes that bowlers need to be as patient as possible on the subcontinent wickets and warned his team mates not to get carried away by spinning wickets.

Harmer said that the wickets would take care of themselves if he stays patient and stick to his game plan by not trying to take wickets, Sport24 reported.

The off-spinner maintained that variation would also be another key factor to suceess in the tour, saying that bowlers should vary their pace and bowl different balls as Bangladesh batsmen are proficient on such wickets.

South Africa will try to make amendments in the Test series after losing three-match ODI series 2-1 against the hosts. (ANI)
