Cape Town - The Proteas aremotivated to continue with their proud record in pink when they take on Englandin the fourth Momentum One-Day International at Bidvest Wanderers Stadiumon Friday.

The Proteas

have won the last three ODI’s played at the Wanderers,which were all played in pink, and will want to continue with that trend asthey look to level the five-match series 2-2.

“We have got a good recordhere, not only in pink but in ODI’s in general at the Wanderers,” Proteas fastbowler, Kyle Abbott said on Thursday.

“We will be looking to start fromscratch tomorrow and build those bases that got us to the big totals in thepast and to winning those games. It’s all a process, it doesn’t happen in oneor two overs, its happens over 50. The guys will be looking to do that andhopefully we can keep up our record and put pressure on the series, which Ithink is building more on them than us.”

The Proteas have set upscores in excess of 300 in all the pink ODI’s, including the record-breakingperformance against the West Indies last year where AB de Villiers smashed thefastest ODI century in 31 balls. The conditions this year look set to be justas conducive, and Abbott insists it will be important to assess and adapt asquickly as possible.

“It’s a very good pitch,” hesaid of the Wanderers.

“The pace is usually quite consistent and we have seentoday there is a short side to the playing area so we will need to manage thatfrom a bowling and batting side. The altitude is also a factor, the balltravels a lot further so there are a few things to take into consideration.”

Cricket South Africa and it’scommercial stakeholders have set their sights on raising a R1 million withinitiatives on the day, with all proceeds going to the The Pink Drive insupport of the brilliant work the charity does around raising breast cancerawareness.

“It’s a fantastic cause,”Abbott said of the match.

“It’s a great initiative that has been running forthe fourth year in a row. There are some targets that have been set, we arelooking to raise over R1 million rand tomorrow which will be fantastic.

“Most people have either beenaffected of have people close to them that have been affected by the disease.To go out there, to play and represent those people is quite an honour. It’snot only another ODI but something with a bigger picture of life which isamazing. Hopefully everyone can pull together tomorrow, dig deep into theirpockets, and raise some money.”
