In the post match presentation, captain Rishabh Pant said, “We scored 10-15 runs short. Bhuvi and other fast bowlers bowled brilliantly in the first 7-8 overs. But after that we were not up to the mark. We need wickets in the second half. But we didn’t get that. They (Klaasen and Bavuma) batted brilliantly. We didn’t bowl well, hopefully we will improve in the coming matches. Now we have to win the remaining three matches.”
