Admittedly the ball was moving. Unfortunately we were so loose in our bowling at the start, the movement didn’t matter. And as we tightened up Kohli played a masterful innings, granted he was dropped by de Kock down the leg side….but that apart he was flawless.
Our batsmen looked like deer in the headlights. Nobody looked vaguely competent….and some looked terrified out there. Disappointing.
We probably still make the playoffs, but this has to shake confidence. This a superb Indian bowling attack, but can the Proteas chase a 300 run total against any top attack. We have the fire power, but do we have the nerve?
