Johannesburg: Australian batsman Usman Khawaja feels that he has prepared well for the second and final Test against South Africa, which starts at the Wanderers on Thursday.

Khawaja is expected to be included in Australia’s line-up after Shaun Marsh picked up a hip injury during the first Test in Cape Town.

“Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel bowled excellently in Cape Town and I have followed them on TV for years now,” Khawaja told a daily.

“I have probably faced almost a million deliveries in the nets and the guys have given me advice on what to expect, but its actually just more bowlers in another cricket match,” he added.
