Du Plessis stresses on piling pressure on opposition

Vernon Philander secured a career best and sealed the victory for the South African team. I was standing at slip and we felt like he could nick guys off at anytime. "I was nervous. I knew that the new ball was going to be key for us and that if we could get wickets with the new ball we feel like we can get through their batting line-up", said du Plessis after the match yesterday. "The plan was to get 200 runs, to get a lead of 350 and to have a crack at them tonight", he added.

"We had, in this game, three guys bowling over 140 (kph) so we need to use that and have a presence that says we are trying to get to where you are as a team", he added. "And if we had Dale Steyn there today, I reckon we would have rolled them out cheaper", he said. This, in essence, rules him out of the ongoing global assignments against India. The Boxing Day Test may be the problem child of the cricket calendar as it fails to draw in crowds in either Durban or Port Elizabeth, but the New Year's Test is the pinnacle. We run up differently, our bowling actions are different.

"We know that he's done really well in one-day cricket but we were preparing more for the other seamers because they've played a lot of Tests", said du Plessis in the post-match media interaction here. "If there's something in the wicket, Vernon is as good as you get around the world". It was exciting and the fans had their full value for money because it was entertainment right through.

There was movement in this Test match.

The fact that the two teams were well matched and both fielded their most aggressive sides helped. When we came in today, the pitch was green again, nearly like the day 1 pitch.

"The pitch was outstanding".

A successful chase had looked possible for India when captain Virat Kohli was at the crease but was trapped by Philander for 28 to leave the at 71-4.

"It's not like I scored two hundreds in this game and it's one of my favourite games of cricket. I think it's a great way to start the series".

The Delhi batsman also praised young all-rounder Hardik Pandya's effort, which included a brilliant 93 in the first innings, to lift India from a precarious 92-7 to 209 besides picking three wickets in the match.

"We've just got to make sure that if there are hard periods where you're going to lose one or two wickets, the guys that do get through make a bigger impact on the game", he said. I just tried to spur my boys on; that's what we tend to focus on. In the second innings thereafter, they lost eight wickets for 65 runs in the morning session of day four.

Philander said: "You just have to remain calm". The first morning, we expected it to move around for the first hour. "That knock was brilliant", Kohli said. It was definitely a plan to keep him quiet, and also to drag him across to make sure that when you do bowl the other one, he is on the other side of the off-stump. "I think pace and bounce is something that you look for in South Africa".
