DU PLESSIS URGES PROTEAS TO GO FOR AUSSIE JUGU­LAR

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

SOUTH AFRICAN cap­tain Faf du Plessis yes­ter­day urged his vic­to­ri­ous team to keep their foot on Aus­tralia’s throat and go af­ter a se­ries white­wash in next week’s fi­nal Ade­laide Test. As far as du Plessis is con­cerned there will be no eas­ing up af­ter yes­ter­day’s in­nings win in Hobart. “That’s the mis­sion for us now. We want to do that very badly,” he said. “The same with the ODIs (5-0 se­ries win in South Africa in Oc­to­ber), we won’t just rest on our lau­rels and be happy with 2-1 or even 2-0. “We’ve got Aus­tralia in a po­si­tion where they’re un­der pres­sure and won’t let that go. It’s hard enough to get them in this po­si­tion so we’ll do ev­ery­thing we can to keep them there.” Du Plessis rated the se­ries win as the high­light of his play­ing ca­reer. “To get eight wick­ets for 32 runs is one of those ses­sions we will al­ways re­mem­ber as a team that won us a se­ries,” he said.
