Smith says Proteas eyeing ‘ruthless’ winning streak
Johannesburg: South Africa captain Graeme Smith has said the team wants to go on a ruthless winning streak and refused to rest on their laurels after securing an impressive innings victory over New Zealand inside three days in the first Test at Newlands.
Smith said South Africa wanted to build on an unbeaten run in Test matches in 2012, which took them to the No 1 ranking in the world, Sport24 reports.
The Proteas captain agreed when asked if the manner of their innings and 27 runs win was an indication of a ruthless approach.
Smith said in modern day cricket it’s all about winning, adding that the win just shows how dominant they are and claimed they would like to take this ruthlessness forward.
Smith said he wanted the level of his team`s play against largely inexperienced opponents to continue in the second Test, which starts in Port Elizabeth next Friday.
