JOHANNESBURG (Agencies) - It is more important for India to focus on conditions in South Africa than worry about having won only one of its nine previous tests in the country, Indias cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said on Monday Its not always about history or what you have achieved in the past. Its always better when it comes to international cricket not to think too much about the stats, he said. Its really important to stay in the present and prepare properly and its about how well the batsmen adapt to the bowlers. Most of the Indian test players have practised at Indian coach Gary Kirstens academy over the past week in an attempt to adapt to local conditions. The facilities were good. We had some decent time for our batsmen to practice, among a few other things. It was very relaxed and the preparation has been good, said Dhoni. The wet conditions in Gauteng have not been ideal for outdoor practice sessions, but Dhoni did not seem too concerned. We are making the most of what weve got rather than think about what could have happened if the weather had been better, he said. There has been much hype about the wickets being prepared for pace and bounce to suit the South African seamers rather than the Indian spin bowlers, but the Indian captain said he hoped his side would adapt fairly quickly. As far as the conditions here are concerned, most of our players are used to playing a fair amount of cricket here, whether its the shorter form of the game or test matches. We want to see some good cricket and we are quite prepared for it so hopefully it will be an interesting series. Well see exactly what wickets have been prepared for us and then well decide accordingly how we need to play, he said. Its all about adapting to the conditions and, at the same time, what kind of bowler you are facing and how much they are in form. Dhoni said the Indian bowling attack had done well at home and abroad on wickets which had not really supported them. They adapt well and quickly and thats one of the main reasons theyve been so successful, he said. Master batsman Sachin Tendulkars performance is always under more scrutiny than most. However, Dhoni echoed the sentiments of South African coach Corrie van Zyl in describing the game as not being about individuals. Its a team sport and not about the individuals. We place more importance on the process and how we are preparing for the test matches, he said. We dont think too much about the results, because we know the amount of talent we have. Preparing well and adapting well. Those are the areas where we are concentrating right now. There is plenty of hype around the series, so hopefully we will play the kind of cricket which will satisfy the spectators.
