Captains View

Temba Bavuma | South Africa

We are going to have a bowl. I think just having a look at the wicket, it has been challenging for us to know what a good score is, so we want to have a look. We take out a lot (from the series win against West Indies), all the positives and all the negatives.

We know what a power-packed side they are, looking at our performances we know where we can cool them down. (Area of focus) Probably the batting. I think that would be the one I would highlight and like to show a better batting display. Quinny is out and Reeza is in. He (de Kock) has made himself unavailable for personal reasons.

Kieron Pollard | West Indies

I always say toss is 50-50. It is an opportunity for us to bat first, put things right and we look forward to the challenge. Like I said we play a lot of cricket and something that we all have experienced at some point in time, we all deal with challenges in different ways, it is matter of us understanding on what we did wrong and how to fix it.

The guys have been upbeat despite what happened a couple of days ago. We have just one forced change; McCoy misses out and Hayden Walsh gets an opportunity. He did well in the recent bilateral series and we look forward to his legspin, the art and energy that he brings.

Player of the Match

Anrich Nortje 

100 percent, it’s (playing IPL in the UAE) helped me quite a lot. It’s helped us as well being able to give some information to the team on conditions, that’s probably the situation for all the players in all the teams.

Just having the confidence of knowing the conditions and understanding what to do, when to do it definitely has helped me coming here. It was a good wicket, similar to the IPL, playing around with the ball with the grip – definitely it brings in some extra variation and something else to the bowlers.

It’s always nice working with him (Rabada), his ideas and knowledge about game in the situation. It’s not a lot about skill anymore, it’s about understanding and communication on the field. It’s really nice to have him around. We said we were quite happy with that happened in the game (against Australia).

With the batting, we wanted to improve. What the guys did out there was awesome. Hopefully we can build on this. I don’t think we’re close to a perfect game, but we can keep on building and try to get as close to that perfect game as possible. That’s all I want to do – just keep on improving every day.
