Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Friday congratulated the Proteas on clinching their ODI Series in New Zealand with a convincing 72-run victory in the second match at Mount Maunganui.

They lead the series 2-0 with the final match to be played at Hamilton on Monday.

“This is another step in the right direction as we build our squad for the World Cup,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “Plaudits are due to coach Russell Domingo, captain AB de Villiers and all the players and management staff for another away series win.

“The Proteas have now won handsomely in three consecutive away series in Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe and New Zealand as well as the triangular tournament in Zimbabwe in which they beat Australia in a final for the first time.
 
“What has been pleasing in this latest success has been the convincing win margins against opponents who have always been very difficult to beat under their home conditions. The impressive manner in which they have adapted has been a stand-out feature and augurs well for the World Cup matches to be played here in New Zealand.

"I am sure our troublesome bowling at the death will be something for the team to work on, but credit is due to Luke Ronchi for the way he batted in both games.
 
“Particular congratulations is due to Hashim Amla who scored his 16th ODI century and became the first player to score four centuries in the current calendar year.”
