 Despite Ashes hero speedster Micthell Johnson having been decoded by South African batsmen yet they have advised not to be complacent.

 

The  Speed star has claimed a career best of 12- 127 in the first test of the ongoing series at Centurion. But in the second test that was held at Port Elizabeth the Proteas seemed to find an answer to the seam and swing of Mitchell Johnson. In that test match Johnson returned with match figures of 3-121.

 

Proteas Coach Russel Domingo has issued a statement in which he had asked his team to be careful of Aussie Speed star Mitchell Johnson ahead of the series decider in Cape Town.

 

"He's a wonderful bowler, he has been in great form for the past couple of months. If we get complacent against Mitchell Johnson I think we do it at our own peril," Domingo said."I don't think we've nullified him at all”.

 

He further said that  it would be foolish on the part of the Proteas to  be complacent  against the aussie speed star in the upcoming third Test  which is going to start from Saturday.
