Steyn targets Test whitewash
The Proteas paceman has called on his teammates to dominate their upcoming Test series against India
CAPE TOWN - Dale Steyn says they are targeting a series whitewash against India in the upcoming test.
The Proteas wrapped up the ODI series 2-0 and want to continue that dominance in the longer format.
The first Test gets underway at the Wanderers on 18 December.
Steyn says they need to be more dominant when playing at home.
"We want to beat any team that comes to South Africa. Whether we play three Tests or five Tests, we want to win 3-0 or 5-0."
"We will sit down and talk about what we want to achieve. Ultimately we want to win, but we will have our daily targets as well."
Steyn says their goals against India are clear.
"Hopefully we can start dominating against India and carry it through to the series against Australia. Dominating games at our home grounds is a big goal for us."
Meanwhile, Steyn will face a unique opponent early in the New Year.
The Proteas will face the Boks in a T20 as part of the festival of Cricket at Newlands from the 3 to 5 January.
Springbok utility back Willie le Rouxsays he has some cricketing ability.
"I'm an all-rounder. I'm not that good at cricket, I actually prefer action cricket, but I'm looking forward to testing myself against the best."
Le Roux says it's a unique concept.
"I think it's a great initiative for us to play against the Proteas. We watch them every other weekend, and they support us, so it's going to be great to play against them. I'm looking forward to it."
