AB AND FAF SEE SA HOME
On Saturday I chilled at home for a change and watched the Cricket. The 1st ODI in New Zealand. I spoke to Doc Moosajee via skype and the boys were pretty upbeat after the T20 Series. New Zealand set a decent target and it was us chasing. After we lost Amla,Kallis and Smith early I felt ok,here goes the first ODI. But step up our captain AB Devilliers as always and with a controlled innings from FAF Du Plessis they seen South Africa home rather comfortably. It was great batting in the end.
Obviously the famous question is , We can do this on tours but not in an ICC event, My response is if you go see a girl for marriage and if you pick the girl up the pressure is different. You cant say its the same. Perhaps for South Africa,the only time we will get this Choker and Champions thing off our back is when we win a major ICC tournament. But for now well lets just say we beat our tournament Bogey team and go one up in a tough series. Well done boys and Well done AB Devilliers. What a player
