Du Plessis pleased with Proteas batting
Proteas captain Faf du Plessis hailed what he called a proper batting performance from his side after it helped set up a commanding series-clinching victory over Sri Lanka in Durban over the weekend. South Africa won by 71 runs on the DLS method at Kingsmead to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match sequence, with their latest win set up by Quinton de Kock’s 14th ODI century. It helped the hosts ram up a massive 331 for five, before restricting the tourists to 121 for five chasing a revised 193 in 24 overs. Du Plessis was satisfied with the Proteas’ showing.
