Dubai:

South Africa batsman A.B. de Villiers says the Pakistan seamers damaged his team's batting in the first test and the Proteas have to adapt quickly for the second and final test starting Wednesday.

De Villiers says "they (seamers) got some really big wickets in the first and second innings and we have to work on it."

Lanky pacer Mohammad Irfan and Junaid Khan had reduced South Africa to 43-3 and then removed Alviro Petersen and Jacques Kallis cheaply in the second innings as Pakistan went 1-0 up in the series with a seven-wicket victory last week.

South Africa has not lost an away test series since 2006 and de Villiers says "we are going in with a fresh mindset to win this test match and not lose the series."
