After this series:
Should AB De Villiers continue on as WK-Batsman?
Does Dean Elgar brings more in as a batsman than De Kock as a wicketkeeper and batsman?
I suppose as with Sangakara, AB De Villiers would be better (seems like so, so far) as purely a batsman.
How are our batsman supposed to improve against pace, seam, swing and bounce when they all play on dead pitches most of the time. Credit to our bowlers for at thriving despite the pitches in Pakistan being roads.
Is it even possible to prepare bowling pitches in Pakistan with grass on them?
It might be possible to prepare such pitches but conditions might not be natural for it and cricket grounds staff might find it expensive to maintain it like that?
They could/might be able to manage heat but this is another aspect that makes this expensive.
I think they've transported in a lot of different varieties of turf in Dubai actually. From places like Perth, Karachi etc....Pakistan could do with getting as much practice on those pitches as possible.

Even 20 batsmen would not be enough against Steyn and Philander.
