The Standard Bank Proteas have re-focused their attention on the prospect of a series whitewash in the third Sunfoil Test match against Sri Lanka starting at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Thursday. The Proteas arrived in Johannesburg on Tuesday with the comfort of an unassailable 2-0 series lead following the 282-run crushing win at PPC Newlands last week, but remain determined to maintain their dominant performances, particularly at a ground that will suit their strengths. The squad will have the added advantage of intricate local knowledge from a number of the bizhub Highveld Lions players in the group, none more so than opening batsman, Stephen Cook, who has played 17 years of First-Class cricket at the stadium. Although there has been some rain around the area over the last few days, Cook expects a ‘traditional’ Wanderers wicket which should suit the Proteas’ pace arsenal.
