Player of the match

Rassie van der Dussen | South Africa

We were happy with bowling first, we would have chased anyway. We knew they were a quality bowling attack and we wanted to put ourselves in a difficult situation. There are one or two things we can tweak but happy with how the run-chase went. In any chase, there has to be someone who plays the anchor role.

We had a lovely platform with Quinny and Temba giving us a solid platform and that made it easy for me. Happy to play that role tonight and we got some good partnerships in the middle, happy to get across the finish line. It’s funny when you do something so well and the other part is not so good, people say you are doing that badly.

We were on the 50-50 mark in terms of chasing so we wanted to put ourselves in a difficult situation and test ourselves going forward. Going into the semi-final, this is what we wanted to do and it worked out well. We have taken a lot of learning from the last two games.

Kolkata was a lot drier and a lot lower. We know what to expect going into the semi-final. Hopefully, if we get back here again, we’ll put in a similar performance.
