20 Jun CSA CONGRATULATES THE PROTEAS MEN ON DRAWN INDIA T20 SERIES
JOHANNESBURG: Cricket South Africa (CSA) congratulates the Proteas men on their drawn T20 international series against India. After the rained out final game yesterday, the five-match series ended two-all.
“This was a tough series with a lot of learnings for our team and we are proud of how the Proteas acquitted themselves,” CSA Chief Executive Officer, Pholetsi Moseki said.
“With an ICC T20 World Cup coming up soon, these results bode well for Temba Bavuma and his men. Hearty congratulations to him, coach Mark Boucher and the entire touring party on a good job well done,” he concluded.
CSA Board Chairperson, Lawson Naidoo, expressed his own satisfaction at the team’s performance.
“Congratulations to the Proteas on an exciting series against India, in difficult and exacting conditions. Back-to-back victories over the talented India team is worthy to celebrate because India possess impressive depth in their system due to the Indian Premier League (IPL), which makes them a dangerous outfit, even when their star players are rested.
“It is pleasing to see the team acquit themselves well in a series where several combinations were fielded, giving all of us watching great hope in our own depth. This truly bodes well for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. We also look forward to another exciting white-ball and Test
series in England very soon.”
