Proteas batsman Temba Bavuma is desperate to prove that he is fit to face the Australian pace attack.
The Cape Cobras star will know at the end of this week if his finger injury has healed.
He says: “I should be good to go for the game next week, but that’s not up to me.”
Asked if SA will have an advantage over the Aussies, he says: “It depends on the wickets that will be prepared (for facing Australia).
“The Aussies have got a lot of firepower in their bowling, so that neutralises that advantage. We have a lot of trust in our bowling, but also a lot of trust in our batting to stand up against whatever firepower they give. We were able to do it in Australia on quick wickets. Whatever strategy we go with, we have the skill to adapt to whatever comes our way.”
