Johannesburg [South Africa], Jan 18 (ANI): South African star batsman AB de Villiers has said that the Indian blowing attack was a "surprise" for him as it challenged the Proteas batsmen quite well in the two concluded matches of the three-Test series.

"India have really impressed me. They have surprised us in terms of pace bowling. They have showed a lot more skill and definitely there is a lot more pace than we expected," de Villiers said.

South Africa have already sealed the series 2-0 with comprehensive wins in Cape Town and Centurion Tests.

The two sides will now meet for the third and concluding Test from January 24 at the New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.

Speaking on the sidelines of an event to launch the Pink ODI against India on February 10, de Villiers said, "There is a big third Test to come and we have to play well. The Indians will try to make it 2-1 but I think if we do the same things we have been doing over the last few weeks, we will put them under pressure at the Wanderers and hopefully will make it 3-nill."(ANI)
