South African spinner Robin Peterson is reportedly prepared for the first Test against Australia starting Wednesday at SuperSport Park in Centurion.

The Proteas spinner said that he would make sure he has his game plans in order if selected to play.

According to Sport24, as the venue is a seam friendly ground, Peterson said that when one plays in South Africa one gets accustomed to the wicket not turning.

He said that a player needs to set clever fields and try to create pressure with their field placings, which could frustrate batters.

The report said that Peterson's inclusion as the lone spinner in the squad is an indication of the important role he has to play and the value he has to offer.

Peterson said that he expected the opposition to target him, especially as the often under-rated cog of a Proteas line-up, lauded for its pace, the report added.
