Kallis cheers mates on

2nd ODI today

After their dismal showing in the first one-day international, all-rounder Jacques Kallis says the Proteas are determined to improve their performance and level the three-match series against Australia.
Kallis said on Friday the South Africans, who were thumped by 93 runs in the first ODI in Centurion earlier in the week, had been training hard ahead of the second encounter in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
"We just need to uplift our performance," Kallis said.
"We had a good training day today and perhaps we'll ease off a little bit tomorrow as we usually do the day before a game.
"But we need to improve in all departments and it's a matter of trying to cover all your bases and being as well prepared as you can -- which we are."
Kallis, the top ranked all-rounder in the world, said forming substantial partnerships was key to winning any game and they were unable to do that in their last outing.
"Hopefully we can get out there and put together some big partnerships up front like Australia did on Wednesday, and put them under pressure this time," he said.
"That's the key to one-day cricket -- getting partnerships throughout and still having wickets at the death."
