Johannesburg, Jan.21 (ANI): England coach Trevor Bayliss has urged his side to continue their high standards if they want to become the best team in the world and to win the final match against South Africa.
Bayliss believes that good teams are not satisfied by simply clinching the Test series, calling on his side to aim for 3-0 win against Proteas.
Earlier, South Africa suffered a seven-wicket defeat in the third Test of the four-match series in Johannesburg to give England a decisive 2-0 lead and thereby losing the number one Test ranking to India.
The second Test between the two sides ended in a draw.
Echoing similar views, skipper Alastair Cook, whose place would be taken over by Eoin Morgan for upcoming ODI and T20 series, also urged his side to look at the areas where the team need to improve themselves,Sport24 reported.
Meanwhile, former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith said that the team management were equally responsible for the side’s dip in form and ,therefore, called on them to look after the issue.
England will now take on the hosts in the final Test, a dead rubber, in Centurion from Friday.(ANI)
