Cape Town - Proteas batsman Reeza Hendricks says he
was happy to contribute with the bat in the T20I series against Sri
Lanka after he had a "dry" patch in the recent ODI games.
Hendricks was named Man-of-the-Series as the Proteas completed a
whitewash in the three-match T20I series with a rain-affected 45-run
victory at the Wanderers on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Hendricks followed up his knock of 65 in Centurion on
Friday with 66 on Sunday and was happy to regain some form after only
scoring 42 runs in four innings in the five-match ODI series.
"It has been a dry couple of days after the ODI
series, but I am quite pleased with the T20Is - it was a good team
performance," said Hendricks.
"I am just happy I could contribute for the team."
Hendricks also praised the work done by Dwaine Pretorius in the third
T20 as the all-rounder smashed 77 off just 42 balls after being promoted
to number three in the batting order.

Hendricks continued: "I thought I had to go for it with a few overs
remaining. Dwaine played really well - he made it really easy for me. I
am quite pleased overall."
