South Africa eyeing to focus on Sri Lanka's weaknesses: De Villiers

Cape Town, Wed, 14 Dec 2011 ANI

Cape Town, Dec 14(ANI): Ahead of the three-Test against Sri Lanka, South African vice captain AB de Villiers admits that it is difficult to say what the visiting team's weaknesses are, as they haven't faced each other since 2006.


"You don't know what to expect. Obviously the most important thing for us is to respect them and play them like they're the No.1 team in the world - which they're not," Sport24 quoted De Villiers, as saying.


"You can say they're thin in both departments (batting and bowling), but I won't know that because we haven't played them (for so long). We will try and focus on some of their weaknesses, although we don't know what they are yet. But after analysis I'm pretty sure we'll have a good idea," he added.


He also backed the team to end a three-year run of near misses at home.


"I don't think we've played poor cricket in the last few years. I do think we've played the massive and important situations not too well. If we get a good cricket wicket and we play good cricket, they (Sri Lanka) are not going to be able to stop us," De Villiers said.


The three-Test series between the two teams starts in Centurion on Thursday. (ANI)
