PLAYER OF THE SERIES
Quinton de Kock
AB de Villiers – stand-in captain: It was fun. Easy to captain a side when they are playing so well. We took one game at a time. We played a clinical game of cricket. We never gave them a sniff. The bowling was spot on. Impressed with the talent coming through. Excited by the two youngsters. And also Temba was good with the bat.
Faf du Plessis is the Man of the Match. He isn’t here to collect his trophy. His schoolmate and friend – AB de Villiers will collect it on his behalf.
Quinton de Kock, Man of the Series: The new balls have come on very nicely. It was a tough series against England. Good to contribute here. All wickets were similar. 168 (knock in the first ODI) stands out the most – probably most favourite. He (Temba Bavuma) keeps me on the feet. Nice little change up. New blood and he did well. It’d have been nice if both of us had kicked on. It’s (T20) a different ball game. Bangladesh will be a stronger team in the shorter format. Lets see what happens.
Mashrafe Mortaza: All three matches, it was so difficult. Two T20Is are left. Hope the boys play with passion. Bowling was a big concern and so was the batting. We didn’t get any partnerships going. We need to get early wickets in these conditions. We can’t make any excuses. This is something we can learn. T20s will be fresh.
