ODIs won’t be walk in the park: Duminy
South Africa may have clinched the Twenty20 series quite comprehensively but their star batsman J P Duminy feels the Indians will fight back strongly in the upcoming ODIs and make sure that his side does not have it easy.
South Africa defeated India in Dharamsala and Cuttack to clinch the Twenty20 series 2-0 after the third and final match was abandoned owing to a wet outfield.
“As a team, we definitely expect them to put in a big performance in the two series. We are under no illusion that it is going to be a walkover in the ODI series. We know that we have to fight hard and play well and take it one game at a time,” Duminy, who was adjudged man of the series, told a news conference after Thursday’s washout.
The ODI leg is beginning with Kanpur in two days time and Duminy said his side would once again look to make a strong start.
