New Delhi [India]: With India wrapping up the ODI series against South Africa 2-1 after a seven-wicket victory in the Delhi match here on Tuesday, Indian skipper Shikhar Dhawan expressed happiness with his team’s performance saying the batters showed great character on such tough batting pitches and the bowlers were clinical in the match held here today.
Four-wicket haul from spinner Kuldeep Yadav and vital contributions from other Indian bowlers powered India to defeat South Africa by seven wickets in the third and final ODI of the series. “I am proud of the boys, the way they played in the series. The way they carried the responsibility and showed maturity. Would like to thank the support staff. We showed a lot of character in the first game, we dropped a few catches, but we never really put pressure on ourselves. We tried to stick to the process. I am enjoying the journey, I will try to keep performing well for my team. The boys showed great character on such tough batting pitches. The bowlers were clinical today,” said Dhawan in a post-match presentation.
