Australia prepare to take on South Africa in 2nd Test

 

Australia take on South Africa in the second Test of their three-match series, at the St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth from Thursday.

 

South African captain Graeme Smith on Wednesday played down the “hype” around Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson ahead of the second Test which starts at St George’s Park on Thursday.

 

Johnson destroyed the South African batting in the first Test at Centurion with match figures of 12 for 127, spearheading Australia to a 281-run win, AFP reported.

 

“It’s important not to get caught up in the hype,” said Smith. “Obviously Mitchell bowled extremely well and bowled aggressively.

 

“We all know that creates headlines, stories and fanfare. There’s huge respect in our team for someone who is performing well but it’s important for us to focus on getting our skills right.”
