We need to rework our plan against Chahal, Yadav: Duminy
CAPE TOWN: Bamboozled by Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in the ongoing ODI series, South Africa middle-order batsman JP Duminy said the Proteas need to go back to the drawing board and re-work their plan to tackle the Indian wrist-spin duo.
Chasing India's 303 for six, South Africa once again surrendered before Chahal (4/46) and Yadav (4/23) to end way behind at 170 all out in 40 overs.
The hosts lost the third ODI by 124 runs to surrender an unassailable 3-0 lead in the six-match series.
"What they've done really well is assess the conditions in terms of what they need to do, what sort of speed and length they need to bowl. They (Chahal and Yadav) haven't made it easy for us to get singles," Duminy said. "A lot of us have not picked their googlies. We've not been good enough. They've bowled well enough not to let us play according to our game plan. We've got to come up with different ways of countering them. They've outplayed us in all departments," he added. Duminy said with three matches remaining, the series is not yet over and
the hosts would need to do some serious thinking before the fourth ODI.
