Proteas coach admits team still hasn't 'mastered' Johnson despite second-Test win
South African coach Russell Domingo has admitted his fears of another mauling by Australian Mitchell Johnson in the deciding third Test at Cape Town, saying that the hosts have not managed to master the pace bowler.
Johnson, who claimed career-best Test match figures of 12-127 in the first Test on a bouncy Centurion pitch, crashed back to earth as he was restricted to match figures of 3-121 in Port Elizabeth.
However, the Sydney Morning Herald reports Domingo said that even though his charges should take confidence from how they mastered Johnson at St George's Park, it would be foolish to expect that they can 'nullify' him in the third Test at Newlands starting on Saturday.
Hailing Johnson as a wonderful bowler, Domingo said that Johnson has been in great form for the past couple of months, adding that if South Africa gets complacent against Johnson, they do so at their own peril.
Domingo warned his men to remain on their guard every single moment when they face Johnson as he is a player who can turn a match around with a few deliveries, although the coach was confident about the advantageous effect a last-start win would have on his team.
