Could have been more clinical : BAVUMA


Share post:


Chennai, Oct 28: South Africa were lucky to escape by the skin of their teeth and should have been more clinical in the runchase against Pakistan during the World cup match here, said skipper Temba Bavuma.
South Africa on Friday managed to walk away with a narrow one-wicket win in a tense finish. It was their first World Cup win against Pakistan since the 1999 edition.
Chasing 271, the Proteas had a comfortable start, aided by Aiden Markram’s assertive 91 but it turned sour with Pakistan scalping a flurry of wickets in the closing stages.“I think obviously at the end, we were all on the edge of our seat. You had everyone’s opinions flying around as to how we should be going about that run chase,” he said during the post-match press conference here.“But at the end of the day, the guys who were in there, Keshav and Shamu, they did it for us. It’s easier for us to have conversations now,” he said. (PTI)
