Against the expectations, South Africa performed exceedingly well against Australia to take a decisive lead in the three-game ODI series. In the second match, Lungi Ngidi’s prowess restricted Australia to 271 runs, which was later gunned down with ease as the opening batsman Janneman Malan mustered his debut ODI century.
Reviewing the ODI series victory, the newly appointed ODI captain Quinton de Kock was found in a jubilant mode. The wicket-keeper batsman didn’t shy away from crediting youngsters for helping his team boss a quality side like Australia. Moreover, he urged his unit not to drop the intensity as the aggressive cricketer wants to record a 3-0 victory against the yellow jersey. The last ODI will be played on March 7 in Potchefstroom.
“Despite losing the services of players like Kagiso Rabada, it was great to see young guns putting their hands up. We showed faith in their abilities and they paid us back by performing brilliantly. Our plan is to keep the good work going and make it 3-0,” said by the 27-year old player.
