Proteas confident of victory
AB De Villiers is confident his men will win the first Test against Pakistan before stumps on Monday.
WANDERERS, JOHANNESBURG - A far better performance with the bat saw Pakistan push the first test into a fourth day.
After being embarrassed in their first innings with a dismal 49 all out, they showed a lot more resistance, closing day 3 on 189/4.
Graeme Smith quickly declared on 275/3 after AB De Villiers reached his century, setting Pakistan the almost impossible task of running down 480 to win the match.
De Villiers said the Proteas were confident they have the quality to wrap up the match before stumps on Monday.
“We like to play a certain brand of cricket and that’s positive cricket. We can’t see them score more than 400 on this wicket.”
He added that the Proteas bowling attack will help win them the game.
