The captain of the England Cricket Team Eoin Morgan admitted that they were outplayed by South Africa in the last three games but they will come back in the next series as most of their players are young and inexperienced so their team is in a learning process.
Morgan was talking to Sky Sports when he said that they had chances in the previous games which they could have availed to seal the series but they missed those opportunities. He said that they were not good enough at the end but they will change that in future.
England could have become first team since Australia in 2002 to come to South Africa and win both Test and the One-Day International (ODI) series. England had won the Test Series 2-1 but went down in the ODI series after having a 2-0 lead and had strong positions in third and fourth game.
South Africa needed to chase 318 in the third game and chased that for the loss of three wickets, whereas the hosts needed more than 50 runs when England needed only 2 wickets in the fourth game. They could have won both games but they were not able to finish them.
The top scorer of the series Alex Hales, who scored five consecutive fifties believes that they have improved a lot since the World Cup but they need to improve more. Hales had scored 1 century and got out on 99 once as he dominated the series but could not win for his side.
