We bowled both teams out for under 300 runs, so we are very happy with the way the bowlers have executed. It was just a "This is what I'm feeling".

It was reported that de Villiers had approached du Plessis, head coach Ottis Gibson and convenor of selectors Linda Zondi, where he expressed his desire to reverse his retirement and play for the team in the World Cup.

"The squad was already picked". They haven't given up on making the semi-finals.

Another washout would likely scupper their hopes.

Captain Faf du Plessis joined Quinton de Kock in the middle to try and resurrect the innings but 8 balls later the showers arrived forcing the players off the field.

"We don't deserve to be anywhere close to the top of the log". South Africa's preparation has to be spot on.

"We need individuals to stand up and step up morale".

Du Plessis insisted South Africa still boast good spirit in the wake of their poor performances so far. "We haven't played our best cricket so far and we've got to beat Afghanistan", Du Plessis said. The guys are still enjoying.

"Generally, I find that when a team starts losing two or three games, it can happen that there are a few cracks that can appear in a team and the blame game can start. But even then, in a 30-35 over game, you can defend, but we didn't get anything get a game today" said du Plessis at the post-match interaction.

"So that's a testament to our culture".

"You don't become a bad player in a week".

"Now it is just the performance and the skill side of cricket that needs to take over". The right-hander edged one to Chris Gayle, and the trademark "Sheldon Salute" garnered roars from those in Southampton. "I am sure Jofra will be chomping at the bit to come at us but we will be ready for him", he said.

Speaking to the reporters after the rain-abandoned game against West Indies, Du Plessis revealed that he and his former teammate AB had telephonic conversation on this matter during the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year.

"In terms of the point, we'll take it".

"Everyone should be fit for the next game. I guess it is a blessing this game is over and we can look forward to the game against England", Holder said. But questions over whether both his eyes and form have deserted him began to resurface when he was late on a hook shot against Jofra Archer and was forced to retire hurt before coming back and scoring just 13 against England.
