Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) have congratulated the Proteas on their 3-2 series win over England in the Momentum ODI Series following their victory in the deciding match at PPC Newlands on Sunday.

It was a remarkable triumph for the Proteas who came back from being 2-0 down to win the next three matches in the series.

“Congratulations to captain AB de Villiers, coach Russell Domingo, the players and the team management,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “To have won three games in a row to clinch the series 3-2 will do this squad of players a world of good. They have now scored back-to-back series victories against two of the most powerful nations in world cricket in India and England.

“The impressive growth and telling performances of some newer players is very satisfying for us and indeed very promising for the future.

“The team showed maturity and temperament in the way they came back from being 2-0 down and as Hashim Amla spelt it out, their last three matches were effectively all finals.

“We now look forward to the twenty20 format with home KFC series matches against England (two) and Australia (three) before we depart for the ICC World Twenty20 in India.”
