Dwaine Pretorius is the Man of the Match
AB de Villiers: I think the crowd was amazing. We did not score three hundred and did not enough sixes but achieved what we wanted to, first win the series and then support the cause against breast cancer. I will be honest, the wicket was two-paced and it would have been much closer had they scored 100 more. It was very important to bowl them under 40 overs. I am watching the ball well and it was good to get some runs. Things like these take off the focus (bee invasion) but the guys kept the focus and took wickets. The focus was to play good cricket. It is important to give a couple of new guys some chance in the next games.
Upul Tharanga: I think we are a good side. Dickwella batted well but did not get much support. Bowlers gave their 200 percent. We dropped some catches and that cost us. Still two games to go. Like I said earlier, our man concern is batting. We have got good starts but have not made use of that.
