De Villiers to lead South Africa in England T20s

De Villiers was criticised for his captaincy in the one-day worldwide team as South Africa crashed out of the ongoing Champions Trophy after one win and two losses. India, after opting to field, clawed their way into the game after South Africa's openers had given the team a sluggish start. "There's not anyone else in South Africa that's better than the guys right here", he said.

De Villiers endured a miserable tournament, scoring only 20 runs, while his team came in for heavy criticism after losing twice in three matches. "I can't explain to you what exactly happens", he said. Until you have a team effort you can't win games, especially in conditions you are unfamiliar with.

"The pressure was built by the bowlers and that I think resulted in those breakthroughs we got in the field", Kohli said. And I believed the same thing over here in this tournament and the last one, that's what I believe. "That's why we are chosen among millions of people to play at this level", said Virat in the post-match conference.

Hashim Amla‚ Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy have been rested for what promised to be the most forgettable segment of South Africa's summer in England‚ which culminates in next month's test series.

"I would like to thank Farhaan Behardien for leading the side so ably in the recent series against Sri Lanka", Cricket South Africa selector Linda Zondi said in a statement.

Morgan, previously unstinting in his praise of Surrey batsman Roy, was not quite so effusive after a win at Edgbaston on Sunday where England slumped to 35 for three before their captain's 87 and Ben Stokes's 102 not out bailed them out, with the duo sharing a stand of 159. You play different teams all the time on different venues. I have not thought about what we are going to think about our next tournament.

The victory against South Africa has given the confidence boost the team needed before heading into the semi-final, "To be able to bowl like that against a batting line-up of their capability gives confidence". We are asking everyone to do it and everyone is responding really well.

Pakistan certainly made far harder work than they ought to have done of getting to the knockout stage in a winner-takes-all clash given they held Sri Lanka to 236 all out, with pacemen Junaid Khan (three for 40) and Hasan Ali (three for 43) doing the bulk of the damage.
