Amla: ‘Three finals’ to save the series


South Africa batsman Hashim Amla hopes the Proteas can play and win 'three finals' as they look to turn around a two-nil deficit at home against England in the five-match ODI series.

The Proteas lost the first two games of the series, in Bloemfontein and Port Elizabeth, and have to win in Centurion on Tuesday to stay alive.

The hosts are looking to bounce back after losing the four-match Test series two-one to their opponents.

Amla said on Monday: "In the Test matches, we had a lot of setbacks with injuries, and in the one-dayers, we haven't performed yet.

"But we're not thinking about that. We're out to win tomorrow, get some momentum for the next one and then hope to win in Cape Town as well.

"Everything starts tomorrow. It's a massive motivating factor. We've got three finals in a row, and tomorrow is the first one we have to knock off.

"I hope we can put it all together at once, consecutively in three matches."
