The two-Test series against Bangladesh will be in some ways a new beginning for South Africa.
“Everyone has a drive to want to win,” he said on Tuesday (September 26). ” That is what we want to do, we want to play good cricket after a long break. We are going to have to get back to it quickly, that is the challenge.
“We have just gotten back together after a break and there is a new coach which is exciting. You can tell that it is a new beginning with the same team, there are only a couple of new faces. At the same time we still have our old coaching staff, only the head coach is new. It feels like a new beginning with the same people. We will be settling in and this match will help immensely.
“We know we are a talented side and we have good skills. We want to get back on our feet. In England, I don’t think we played bad cricket, we were on the wrong end of some important moments. We have recognised that, and will be looking to pounce on them and get back to our winning ways. We certainly know how to win.”
