New Delhi: India's new batting sensation Shikhar Dhawan reckons the bouncy tracks in South Africa will suit his style but he will still work on specific batting drills to make the adjustments when the Indian team embarks on a tour of the country at the end of the year.

"It will obviously be a big challenge to perform in South African conditions but I will relish that challenge. I have always loved batting on strips that offer bounce. I enjoy facing the fast bowlers. In fact greater the pace of the bowlers -- late 140 kms to early 150 kms -- better it is," Dhawan told PTI in an interview on Monday.

Having scored a magnificent 187 against Australia on debut, the 27-year-old Dhawan feels that there is still some time left to prepare for the South Africa tour.
