SA vs IND: ‘Mission accomplished for us’ says Temba Bavuma on 3-0 ODI series win over India;

SA vs IND: South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma expressed his delight after the Proteas beat India by four runs at the Newlands Cricket Ground on Sunday to win the ODI series 3-0.

Virat Kohli’s (65), Shikhar Dhawan’s (61), and Deepak Chahar’s (54) half-centuries were in vain as India lost by four runs to South Africa.

“Got a bit crazy at the end. Probably the complacency got to us. Guys tried a couple of things that didn’t come off. Very satisfying, mission accomplished for us. Many people didn’t give us much of a chance. Hope through our performances, we’ve been able to get a couple of supporters. Making good strides as a team. Challenge is to get better and better. Quinton’s been great. Rassie as well with the bat. He’s been tremendous. His game starting to move to the next level. Bowling’s been decent,” said Bavuma at the most post-match presentation.

“This was a big challenge, a big obstacle in our journey. To come out the way we did – winning Tests, winning ODIs convincingly will do a world of good. What pleased me most – if you look at the Test series, feel like it’s the hardest series I’ve been part of. Indian bowlers asking questions regularly. Even in the field the intensity. Physically we’ve been challenged – it’s been very hot the last couple of weeks. These conditions weren’t exactly South African like – more like the subcontinent. Always nice to contribute to the team. Enjoying my batting at the moment. Things are okay at the moment,” he added.

Earlier, Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen scored 124 and 52 runs, respectively, as South Africa amassed 287 runs. Prasidh Krishna returned with three wickets for India.

India had also lost the Test series 1-2 to South Africa. Virat Kohli opted to resign down as Test captain after that.
