South Africa coach Mickey Arthur is determined that his side can maintain its number one spot in the Reliance Mobile Team rankings.

"Being number one on the ICC Reliance Mobile world rankings is no time to rest on our laurels. We must be continually looking to take our game to a new level," said Arthur speaking at Cricket South Africa's season launch.

Also speaking at the launch, Proteas captain Graeme Smith said his team was raring to go and are looking forward to the new season.

"Over the last year we ticked two important boxes in beating both Australia and England away from home. We have two more chances this season to tick another box by winning an important ICC event.

"There will also be the highlight of the home season in playing the Castle Test series against England as well as the MTN ODI series and the Standard Bank International Pro20s.

"We currently hold the D'Oliveira Trophy for our Test series win in England and we intend to keep it."
