Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur on Monday (Jan 14) while speaking after South Africa’s clean sweep against Pakistan at the Wanderers Stadium, said that he was determined to find a solution to his team´s problems against fast, short-pitched bowling.
“We play Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates in September then we play Australia in Australia straight after that,” he said. “We have to have our skill sets perfect to manage the bouncing ball. I want to get our batsmen into Australia three or four weeks early, to have camps there to get them ready.” “This question always arises at the end of a series,” said Arthur. “Sarfraz goes from strength to strength. He wants to lead from the front. I thought his wicketkeeping has been outstanding. What we need is to get a good core of leaders around him. If we can do that he´ll go from strength to strength.”
South Africa completed a series clean sweep with a 107-run win on the fourth day of the third and final Test at the Wanderers Stadium on Monday, completing a 3-0 clean sweep of the series. Following a fightback in the late hours of yesterday’s play, Pakistan stumbled in the daunting chase of 381 as the fourth day of the Test resumed.
