Johannesburg - The Proteas have the fight and belief to
see out a draw in the current Test against India at the Wanderers.
"We believe that you learn belief
through your experiences and our experiences have been good in the past. We
have shown the resilience of batting through the whole day before and that is
what we are drawing on to approach this innings.
"Alviro has played fantastically well
today, he is well placed for a big score," said Birrell. "They are
both there and we have full confidence that they can bat a long time tomorrow
and lay the foundation to fight for the day. They are both fighters, they are
not going to give it away, it’s a great opportunity for them to play a
meaningful and long innings."
