Stuart Binny has been in and out of the Indian squad in the recent past. At 30, he has played five Tests, 13 ODIs and two T20Is.

It is not only more opportunities one gets, but also off-field preparations, that helps,” the 31-year-old Binny said on the second day of the camp for the Indian probables ahead of South Africa series.Not changed my skill workThe Karnataka veteran said that he hasn’t made too many changes in skill work, but made changes in terms of tackling mental pressure.Also read: Showing faith in MS Dhoni, selectors have played it safe “I haven’t made too many changes when it comes to skill work, but I have made lot of changes when it comes to my game in my head,” Binny said.Ind-SA: Hard-fought battleThe allrounder said the upcoming India-South Africa series will be a hard-fought battle and made it clear he prefers bowling with new ball as he has the ability to swing the ball.”We will be playing against a quality side, who are good in all formats of the game.
