The captain of the South African Cricket Team Ab De Villiers has admitted that he had brought himself one position from his usual fourth No. position because he wanted to bat under pressure and he did that when South Africa were 22/3 and scored a century to win the game.
De Villiers was playing his 200th game and has 23 centuries so he feels that now he is good enough to stand up for team in the pressure situation and it was surely one of those when he came out to bat and South Africa had lost quick wickets and were 215 runs away from win.
The dynamic batsman had Hashim Amla with him on the crease and De Villiers said that both of them were very calm and cool. They talked about the situation and decided that they will just try to save the wickets and will make sure that bad balls go away for boundaries.
Amla was slow and steady as he got out after scoring 59 but De Villiers remained there. David Wiese also accompanied De Villiers well and although he looked in hurry, enough runs were left for De Villiers to score his 24th ODI century. Nobody else had these many centuries in 200 games.
South Africa were 2-0 down in the series but De Villiers never gave up and believed that their time will come as well. He felt that they could have won the first two games as well but luck was not on their side. South Africa had lost Test Series to England but avoided the double loss.
