Cape Town - South Africa captain AB de Villiers insists that they can come back and win the five-match ODI series against England despite the Proteas being two-nil down with three games to play.

The hosts went down by five-wickets as the tourists followed up their victory by 39 runs in the first match to take a firm grip on the series.

The Proteas had England under pressure in both games but the away side kept coming up with the answers and just seem to be winning the crucial moments in the games.

"England are a good side. They are playing some good cricket at the moment, they look confident but they are not unbeatable," said De Villiers. 

"We had a couple of opportunities in both the games we played and I know it sounds like I am singing the same song from the Test matches but it's true, it's a matter of getting it right and taking our opportunities.

"In Bloemfontein we had a chance to get it right, I knew that rain was going to come and we didn't get the timing right. Today again, we had the opportunity to take them down and unfortunately it didn't happen that way."

The third ODI is scheduled to take place in Centurion on Tuesday.
