South African Cricket Team captain Ab De Villiers has said that they are slowly coming back in the One-Day International (ODI) series as they lost first two games but were come close and then won the third game to reduce England's lead to 2-1 with two games left.
De Villiers said that they have not had a great series but still it was the must win game so all the players knew it is do or die situation. He said that all the players had a hunger and the urgence was showed in the field by his players which resulted in a 7 wickets win.
The strong foundation was laid by the South African openers Quinton De Kock and Hashim Amla who added 239 runs for the first wicket partnership and even though the target was not so easy, they made sure that the batsmen after them did not have so much to do.
The skipper said that both of them played fantastic knocks and they also had some knowledge about the pitch which gave them confidence and belief that they will be able to chase the target. South Africa had scored 300+ 9 times on the ground but never in second innings.
The next two games of the series will be played in Johannesburg and Cape Town where South Africa will be looking to save themselves from double defeat as England had beaten hosts in Test series too and Australia was the last team to come here and win both series.
