AB de Villiers says Pak's seamers caused Proteas' batting demise in first Test

Islamabad, Oct 21 (ANI): South African batsman AB de Villiers has said that Pakistan's seamers were responsible for his team's batting demise in the first Test and the Proteas have to adapt quickly for the second and final Test starting Wednesday.

According to the Dawn, De Villiers pointed out that the seamers got some really big wickets in the first and second innings and they would have to work on it.

Lanky pacer Mohammad Irfan and Junaid Khan had reduced South Africa to 43-3 and then removed Alviro Petersen and Jacques Kallis cheaply in the second innings as Pakistan went 1-0 up in the series with a seven-wicket victory last week, the report said.

South Africa has not lost an away test series since 2006 and de Villiers said that they were going in with a fresh mindset to win this Test match and not lose the series. (ANI)
