AB de Villiers to lead South Africa in T20I series against England

16 Juin 2017

After South Africa's humiliating loss to India in a virtual quarter-final at the Oval, Prince took to social media site and in an apparent dig at captain AB de Villiers questioned the board for not having the spine to formulate rules which make players accountable when they represent their country.

On a pitch that was good for batting, the Indian bowlers and fielders worked in tandem to restrict the South Africans to a relatively low score.

It was a needless mistake indicative of South Africa's malaise and Faf du Plessis was next to perish, for 36, after failing to read Pandya's slower ball.

"I still care deeply about the environment that I spent so much time building as a player, and it hurt to see such an unrecognisable South Africa performance". They then lost the wickets of A B de Villiers and David Miller through run-outs, the former a poor call and the latter through a comedy of errors.

Sri Lanka defeated India by 7 wickets and it made life tough for Virat Kohli and his men.

India were aided by the shambolic South Africans, whose captain AB De Villiers failed for the third time in the tournament after being run out for 16. The opening partnership of 76 runs came off 17.3 overs. No one said it's going to be easy. Dhawan started the charge in the 10th over by hitting Morkel for two back to back boundaries on the off side. He also added that since the wicket did not offer much assistance, the bowling unit chose to stick with its basics and the as a result, each bowler chipped in and restrained the batsmen from going big.

Le chef de l'Etat a réagi: "Nous sommes profondément attristés par cette tragédie", a-t-il fait savoir dans un communiqué. Elle reçut une balle dans la tête mais survécut au prix de lourdes séquelles, mais six personnes ont péri ce jour-là.

The series gets underway on June 21 at the Ageas Bowl, with further games at Taunton on June 23 and Cardiff on June 25.

Shikhar Dhawan yet again came up with a special knock and Kohli too joined the bandwagon.

India now progress to the semi-final stage of the competition and South Africa will head home.

"To be able to bowl like that against a batting line-up of their capability is something that already we can feel that confidence and that energy in the changing room because of a bowling performance like this, and we surely would like to take that forward into the semis".

Speaking after the game Bumrah said: "It's my first visit to England, and the wickets have been different to what I expected". South Africa captain De Villiers: "It is always very disappointing when we lose but the way we lost was the most disappointing. The bowlers stuck to their lines and got us the breakthroughs when we needed them".
