Proteas up for Mitch

Aap
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

JOHANNESBURG, AAP - Mitchell Johnson's turnaround from career-worst to career-best bowling shocked England, but the left-armer won't have the same effect on South Africa according to Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis.

Johnson's low point came in a miserable 2009 Ashes campaign, and he then slogged through an unremarkable 2010-11 edition of cricket's greatest rivalry save for a stellar performance in Perth.

The Johnson that then blasted England away, taking 37 wickets to be man of the series in the 2013-14 Ashes, was an unfamiliar and frightening beast for the tourists.

South Africans best remember the early 2009 Johnson vintage — a confronting blend of broken bones, buckets of wickets and a maiden Test century with the bat.
