Quality and not quantity: other teams in awe of Proteas’ dominance in short match

2012-09-24 00:00

THE Proteas may be enjoying a two-day break from the bright lights of the World T20 and, no doubt, from media scrutiny, but they will be interested to learn when they return to “the office” tomorrow that the concensus of opinion among most experts was that their 32-run victory against hosts Sri Lanka in a match reduced to just seven overs a side was worth far more than most matches contested over such a short distance.

“It’s not easy to stay focused with all the rain around and the feeling that it’s going to be called off, but we had a chat and reminded each other of the lessons we had learned from those games. It doesn’t even take a whole over to win or lose the game — you can do it in three or four balls. So it was very satisfying that the guys were on the button from ball one.”
