Proteas captain, Faf du Plessis, expects nothing less in their match against Australia in the third Sunfoil Test match starting at PPC Newlands on Thursday.
Both teams have put in competitive performances to leave the series on a knife-edge at 1-1, and more high-quality cricket is expected when the action resumes after a 10-day break.
A win for the Proteas will ensure they finish number two in the ICC top rankings and it will also mean that they are unbeatable in the series.
Du Plessis says this series is not different to any other series they have played.
“It is no different to any other series we have played, it has been competitive,I am proud of the way our team has stood up to the Australian team, that is important when you play against them. You can’t allow them to bully you when they are on top. We have stood our ground and we will be in for a cracker in the last two Tests,” Du Plessis said ahead of the Match on Wednesday.
Australia last won the match against Proteas in Newlands, 2014.
