Proteas coach 'hopeful' after new faces join side for Test series against Bangladesh

Johannesburg: South Africa coach Russell Domingo believes that change in personnel has provided his side with 'fresh energy' ahead of the two-match Test series against Bangladesh starting on Tuesday.

After a disappointing One-Day International (ODI) series loss, eight new players have joined the squad for the format which the South Africans have been dominating lately.

Domingo said it was a disappointing finish to their ODI series after starting well in the T20s but now they have eight new players here which would provide great energy and new ideas and also some experience with guys like Dale Steyn joining the side, Sport24 reported.

The coach also said that he is still in search of compatible combinations in his line-up.

He inspired the young players, saying that they would bring in the hunger and desire that is required for winning.

Domingo insisted that his side can overcome the Bangladesh tigers in their home ground only when they play consistent cricket and also apply enough pressure to whittle away the number eight ranked hosts.
