Proteas aim to keep momentum
Faf du Plessis has urged his teammates to demonstrate intensity against Pakistan.
JOHANNESBURG - Proteas Twenty20 captain Faf du Plessis has urged his players to maintain the same intensity they showed in Abu Dhabi to beat Pakistan 2-0 away from home.
The teams meet again this evening, this time at the Wanderers in Johannesburg, for the first of two T20s.
Du Plessis says they cannot allow Pakistan into the match.
"They are desperate as a team now to put in some good performances. They are under pressure to put some things right, especially from a batting point of view. But from my side it's important that we keep the foot on the gas.
"We've shown a lot of improvement in all forms of our style of play. Our batting has been really good. I'd like us to have two really tough games against Pakistan."
The game starts at 6pm tonight.
