Cape Town - South
Africa opener Dean Elgar insists there will be no complacency from the
Proteas for the second Test against Australia in Hobart, as the series
is not won.
The Proteas lead one-nil after winning by 177 runs in Perth, and
Elgar, who scored a ton in that match, feels his lads will be properly
He was quoted on ESPNCricinfo as saying: "We know that the Australian side is still a very dangerous side.
"Them being beaten in the first Test is working in their favour
because they can bounce back.
"Complacency is a big thing for us. That's something we've addressed
as a team. It's a new Test, a new challenge and a new venue for us."
The opener went on to discuss the Proteas' pace attack and their
ability to reverse swing the ball at the WACA, which Kagiso Rabada was
especially good at.
"It is an asset for us if the ball can reverse but also,
for a bowler to be able to bowl with the reversing ball is a massive
skill," Elgar added.
"We're fortunate that most if not all of our bowlers can bowl with
the reversing ball, which works in our favour quite nicely.
"In Perth, the ball reversed in both innings for us when we were bowling and it proved to be a massive asset for us."
The second Test starts on Saturday, 12 November at 01:30 (SA time).
