du Plessis wants to take all advantages of condition
Failing completely in the batting friendly wicket of Potchefstroom, Bangladesh is bemused about the nature of the pitch in the series decider match in Bloemfontein starting from Friday.
According to reports, the wicket of the Mangaung Oval contains more grass and bounce comparing to the bare skinned wicket of the first Test.
Untroubled by the nature of the wicket, South African skipper Faf du Plessis stated notwithstanding anything, they need to be careful against Bangladesh.
“When you have to play against a team like Bangladesh, you have to take all the advantages of the condition,” said Faf du Plessis.
The Proteas pace line up has been troubled by the absence of premier fast bowler Morne Morkel due to sudden falling in injury as Vernon Philander and Dale Steyn has been out of the team before the first Test.
The home team will look into the performance of Kagiso Rabada who will be accompanied by Dwayne Oliver and Wayne Parnell.
The 22 year old Kagiso Rabada have played 21 Test matches so far taking 92 wickets.
