While the rest of the world is celebrating Valentine’s Day today, the Proteas will give no love to England in Durban.
Squaring off at Kingsmead in the second of three T20Is at 6pm, Proteas opening batsman Temba Bavuma wants to give England the kiss of death after winning the series opener by one run in East London on Wednesday night.
The hosts have failed to land that killer blow in both the Test and ODI series. Having taken 1-0 leads in both, South Africa lost the Test series 3-1, while the ODI series ended in a 1-1 draw.
Bavuma, though, wants a series win and believes they can wrap it up in Durban, before the series and tour finale at Centurion Park on Sunday at 2.30pm.
He says: “We will take all the learnings from [Wednesday’s] game.
“It will be important to rock up in Durban with confidence and momentum - there will be different challenges, so we have to pitch up.
“You don’t want a situation where we go to Centurion at 1-1 , we probably have the upper hand on the English at this point in time and we have to use the advantage and not allow them back at this point in time to level the series.”
