Du Plessis ready for hot Australia welcome

Speaking to Netwerk24 in an interview, Faf du Plessis mentioned that he wouldn't want to involve AB de Villiers in the current South Africa team unless it was as a player.

"I feel that brings the best out of us as a team, us as South Africans, we love that fiery competition".

On the request of Coach Ottis Gibson, Du Plessis himself is likely to come in at number four, adding "No 4 is a position where you need to be versatile and play different situations and we also need that experience in the middle order".

Once Australia return from the UAE following their three-match T20I series against Pakistan, they'll jump straight into a limited-overs sequence against the Proteas, with three ODI matches to be followed by a sole T20 worldwide. "For some, this is an opportunity to put their pegs in the ground and make a play to be a part of that World Cup 15", Du Plessis said.

"We are playing against an Australia side that is trying to prove to people that they are the team that they used to be‚" he said.

Australia received a hostile reception from South Africa's supporters during a bad-tempered tour leading up to the Newlands incident that resulted in bans for Steven Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, and South African captain Faf du Plessis is relishing the backlash he expects to receive from fans and the media in Australia.

"It will be nice and hostile. We expect them to try and unsettle us as a team when it comes to the media space, obviously with myself being at the forefront of it, but we see it as part and parcel of touring Australia", he said. We are not expecting anything less. "Your mental capabilities and strength are just as important as your skill", he said.
