Johannesburg: The Proteas are reportedly preparing to rest upon their strengths and their knowledge about opponents Pakistan for their crucial ICC Champions Trophy match in Birmingham later on Monday.

Proteas captain, AB de Villiers said that playing against Pakistan is a big challenge for them, even though they have got accustomed with face-offs against their arch rivals after playing against them in six one-day-internationals (ODIs) in the last three months.

De Villiers also expressed confidence that the Proteas will be at their best to win the tournament as the squad has accepted and learnt from the mistakes of the previous game.

The captain also acknowledged the fact that the team will not change their game strategies, adding that if the team plays to their full potential, they are capable of beating any team.
