Jason Holder

Did pretty well early on, keeping the run-rate down. But AB took the game away from us. If you take away his innings, it looked a totally different score. We dropped chances, and chasing 400 was always tough. But had we held on to some of those chances, we could have had 350 to chase and could have had the chance.

Our death bowling need to be looked at. Just need to take the positives from today and go on to India. Need to put it behind us, but need to correct the errors moving forward. Still up for the quarter finals. Need to play good cricket

AB de Villiers reveals his inspiration for his brilliant knock.


What a man. Kind words from South African captain


AB de Villiers

They're quite a few things that played a role. the credit had to go to the guys up front and Rilee's energy inspired me. That affected me and I wanted to play like that and then I started timing the ball and it all came off. Watching the ball is very important., Get to know your own game, play within your weaknesses and strengths and wait to play to your strengths.

I dont see it as a risk. I read the situation, I try to read the bowler and I understand my own momentum and I earn the right to go after the bowlers. I didn't know that, Should have got it at the Wanderers [Fastest 150]. The bounce of the ball went my way, but I'm sure West Indies will bounce back


AB de Villiers is named Man of the Match for his brilliant unbeaten knock of 162 runs off 66 balls.


True that.
