Proteas won't change game plan - Smith

The Proteas will be on top of their game when they take on Pakistan at Centurion.

JOHANNESBURG - Graeme Smith said the Proteas will show no signs of mercy when they take on Pakistan in the third and final Test on Friday at SuperSport Park in Centurion.

South Africa leads the three match series 2-0, making the next encounter a dead rubber.

Smith says they are approaching this Test no differently.

“The energy at training yesterday was good and focused. We would love to finish our summer of Test cricket in South Africa on a positive note. It’s always nice to play in Pretoria because of the crowd turnout.”

Rory Kleinveldt is quickly becoming a super sub for the Proteas.

He comes into the starting XI following the injury to Morne Morkel.

Smith says the big Cobras man has come a long way.

“Brisbane was a big learning curve but he made some impact in Adelaide with the ball. I think that gave him a lot of confidence and I’ve certainly seen him develop. He looks sure of what he is doing and he looks like he belongs. He has some good pace and bounces and has the ability to swing the ball both ways which is encouraging.”

The game starts at 10:30am.
