Proteas salvage some pride
AB de Villiers has praised his team’s performance but admits there are things they need to work on.
JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's One Day International Cricket captain AB De Villiers says South Africa need to work harder on their partnerships following the four wicket victory over Pakistan in Centurion on Saturday.
The Proteas had won the toss and elected to bowl first.
They restricted Pakistan to 179 all-out in 46.5 overs.
Pakistan captain Misbah Ul Haq was the top scorer for his team.
In response the Proteas hit 181-6, with captain de Villiers top scoring with 48.
De Villiers has praised his team's performance but admits there are things they need to work on.
"We still didn't chase as well as we wanted to, we lost a lot of wickets and we didn't have a lot of care for our partnerships, which was a little disappointing but we still got through it.
"It's certainly a good boost for our confidence going into the big Indian series."
