Cape Town - Proteas captain Faf du Plessis hopes that the crowd trouble in Monday's second T20 against India in Cuttack was just a "bad day at the office" and that it will not happen again on the tour. 

The match, which the Proteas won comfortably by 6 wickets, was stopped twice after the frustrated crowd launched bottles onto the field while witnessing their team being beaten. 

"It’s not nice to see that. I’ve played five or six years in India and I’ve never seen that," Du Plessis said after the match.

"You don’t want that to be part of the game. You want to come here and compete and have the best team walk away winning. To have that happen is not nice for cricket … it shouldn’t happen.

"Even the way the game was played towards the end, it lost its intensity. (It was) Disappointing in that sense and hopefully it’s the first and the last time we see that on this tour." 

The Proteas now move to Eden Gardens where they will take on India in the third and final T20. They lead the series 2-0.
