But it was very important for myself and Faf (du Plessis) to put our hands up and lead from the front. We haven't had a lot of leaders in the last year.

Dean Elgar said : "A lot of guys had good starts. A guy like Aiden (Markram) who has had time away from the Proteas with injuries -- it's nice to see him come and show his form that he had in domestic cricket. That was a confidence booster. But it was very important for myself and Faf (du Plessis) to put our hands up and lead from the front. We haven't had a lot of leaders in the last year. It was important for us to put in big performances. And it was also awesome to see a guy like Kesh(Keshav Maharaj) coming out and scoring runs," External link

Dean Elgar said : "We know we've got to try and throw a first punch. We didn't do that in the first test, it was almost like we waited for them to make a plan and then put ourselves under a lot of pressure with them scoring nearly 400 runs in their first innings," "Now we want to look to put them under pressure straight away. If we know if we put our best foot forward we can start to dictate the way the test goes" External link
