Having already won the three-match Test series 2-0,  South African star batsman AB de Villiers asserted that the Proteas will look for a clean sweep win when they take on India in the third and concluding Test, starting January 24 at the New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.

"There is a big third Test to come and we have to play well. The Indians will try to make it 2-1 but I think if we do the same things we have been doing over the last few weeks, we will put them under pressure at the Wanderers and hopefully will make it 3-nill," De Villiers said in the sidelines of an event to launch the Pink ODI against India on February 10.

De Villiers said that the Indian blowing attack was a "surprise" for him as it challenged the Proteas batsmen quite well in the two concluded matches of the three-Test series.

"India have really impressed me. They have surprised us in terms of pace bowling. They have showed a lot more skill and definitely there is a lot more pace than we expected," he said.

South Africa have already sealed the series 2-0 with comprehensive wins in Cape Town and Centurion Tests.
