Time for Proteas to walk the walk says captain

2:38 pm on 15 February 2012

The South African cricket captain AB de Villiers is vowing his side will be on their best behaviour as they prepare for a verbal barrage from the Black Caps in their upcoming tour of New Zealand.

The previous clash between the sides was an acrimonious one, with the Proteas skipper involved in a nasty spat with the Black Caps fielders during New Zealand's upset win in the World Cup quarterfinals in Dhaka last March.

However de Villiers says the tourists won't be goaded by the hosts in the series which starts with a Twenty20 match in Wellington on Friday night.
