Proteas Captain Faf Du Plessis says in their second test against Australia his team has to make a bold statement, Australia is leading the Sunfoil Test Series by 1-o, And the game will resume Friday at St Georges Park.
“ It is a big game for us,We have to make sure that our cricket does the talking. We have spoken behind closed doors about the lessons we have learnt and about trying to improve them. It is big for us, we need to make sure we get back into the series 1-1.” Du Plessis emphasized.
“ As a captain of the team we don’t look to push that line,” he said. “ We don’t look to find the grey areas. We try to play a positive brand of cricket with good body language and the type of intensity where you look the guy in the eye and you let them know that you are there to play and compete. We are not a team that flirts with that line when it comes to vocals, we want the cricket to do the talking.”
This will be the Captains 50th Test match for the Proteas.
The Proteas return to a happy hunting ground in St George’s Park, where they haven’t lost a match since 2007. The Proteas beat Australia by 231 runs the last time the two teams met at the venue in 2014.
