Proteas upbeat for Wanderers Test despite Amla’s resignation

Johannesburg: South African coach Russell Domingo believes that change in captaincy has not had too much effect on the team which is looking forward to display an improved performance in the third Test against England.

AB de Villiers took over as the Test skipper for the last two matches after Hashim Amla declared his resignation from the post following the second Test between the two sides ended in a draw.

Considering the change as `business as usual` within the team, Domingo said that his side were not required to do too much of adjustment as they had already played under De Villiers in one day format, Sport24 reported.

Domingo further lavished praise on the new skipper, saying that the new responsibility could bring best out of De Villiers and added that he was really excited for the challenge ahead.

Domingo, however, also backed Amla and believes that he had done a great job in helping the squad while they were in transition.

Talking about the upcoming match, the coach insisted that they would take the experience of their second Test forward.

He called on his side to remain at the top of their game in the upcoming match at the Wanderers.

South Africa are currently trailing 0-1 in the four-match series against England. The two sides will play their last two Tests in Johannesburg (from January 14) and Centurion (from January 22). (ANI)
