rassie van der dussen statement

Talking on the match presentation after being awarded the man of the match title, Rassie van der Dussen while talking said,

“Success for me was to maintain the intensity. When I went to the crease, I knew I had to put pressure on their spinners with my sweeps and river sweeps. For this it was very important to show that intention from the beginning. We got some momentum and put up a good score. We were under a bit of pressure after coming in.”

“But, you need to stand out as a batsman. We knew that if we score 280+ we will be in a good position in this match. As long as there were Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli at the crease, they were putting us under pressure. As soon as we got those two wickets, we knew the new batsman would need a foothold. Last 10 overs were not good, hope we can do better in future. We are on a long journey with this team. We worked hard and had a lot of good conversations. I think it’s coming.”
