Debasis Sen, Johannesburg: Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis doesn’t want to stop only winning the series but also want to complete the whitewash in the series as both the sides will face each other in the third and final Test at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.

It would be a historic clean sweep for the Proteas against their sub-continental opposition  and a 3-0 win will mean they would be decimal points’ behind of the Indians in terms of ICC World rankings.

“I don’t think we’ll make changes for the third Test just for the sake of giving opportunities. We want to keep our foot on the gas and apply as much pressure as possible,” Du Plessis told reporters on the eve of the Jo’burg Test.

“It doesn’t happen a lot that you get the chance to beat a team 3-0 and I would favour dominating India and being ruthless.”

“We can use the ODIs and T20s to try and rotate players. We have an amazing opportunity as a team to win 3-0, and that makes us even more hungry to go where no team has gone before.”

Proteas opener Aiden Markram who had suffered an injury in the second Test is still in doubts to play the final Test. As Temba Bavuma has already been out of contension, Theunis de Bruyn might make it to the playing xi in place of Markram.
