Proteas learn valuable lessons

2014-03-13 09:40
Durban - Proteas T20 coach, Russell Domingo, feels his players have learnt valuable lessons from their five-wicket loss to Australia in the second T20 international at Kingsmead on Wednesday.

The match was reduced to seven overs per side after heavy rain, but gave the Proteas important time out in the middle after the first match in Port Elizabeth was washed out.

"There is always a lesson to be learnt, no matter how many overs you play," Domingo said after the match.

"We have played a few matches in the last few years where we have been reduced to seven or eight overs. Australia won the game and they deserved to do so but I wasn’t too disappointed with the way we played today."

Domingo was also pleased with the death-bowling practice the bowlers received, despite Australia reaching the target with two balls to spare.

"We have to remember that guys like Dale (Steyn) and Morné (Morkel) aren't here," said Domingo.

"It was a good opportunity for guys like Beuran (Hendricks), who had his first taste of the pressures of international cricket, and guys like (Wayne) Parnell who have been successful before, it’s all part of the process."
The Proteas travel to Johannesburg on Thursday, and will have one last opportunity for game time at home in the third fixture taking place at SuperSport Park in Centurion on Friday.
