“Future This was special throughout the series as we came across some quality bowling. He put us under pressure in the powerplay and left a game (Delhi) where we got off to a good start. They dominated us with both ball and bat in the powerplay. ” Boucher Said after the series ended 2-2 despite the Proteas leading 2-0 initially.
However, the former Glovesman felt that the loss of Markram due to Kovid-19 at the beginning of the series had a big impact.

However, South Africa’s gameplan will be different in the case of Australia.
“Plans will change in Australia and we are aware of that. We tried some options in these situations and saw if it worked.
“And I think, we asked a few questions and we got some good answers.”
Boucher has no qualms about the fact that South Africa need to improve their powerplay batting.
“We struggled to move forward in some games and we talk about it after each game and we can see how we can change our mindset and intentions, especially after the third game, when we move forward with the necessary intent. Were, “he said. .
“And at some point our bowling was very good and at some point, we looked rusty and we understand that some people are coming into the series after the IPL and maybe a little tired,” he signed.
