Dean Elgar’s upbeat Proteas are seeking a whitewash and West Indies know they must find a way to counter South Africa’s barrage of seamers if they are to square the series in the second Test that starts on Friday.

But the hosts, who were thrashed in the first Test last weekend, are unlikely to get much respite from the pitch at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Saint Lucia.

The Proteas will bring back middle order batsman Temba Bavuma if he passes a late fitness test after he missed the first game with a hip problem. That is likely to be the only change.
