Lorgat: A ‘privilege’ to watch JHB match
Cricket South Africa congratulated South Africa on their series whitewash over England in the T20 series, with CEO Haroon Lorgat calling it a 'privilege' to watch the second match.
The Proteas won the T20 series thanks to a nine-wicket demolition in Johannesburg. The Proteas chased down the 173 required with nine wickets in hand, thanks to blistering half tons from AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla.
Earlier in the day, the home bowlers had triggered a dramatic England collapse, as they lost seven wickets for just 14 runs in 20 balls. As such, a 200-plus score was reduced to 172 all out.
Lorgat, also commenting on the T20 win added to the ODI series win, said: "The Proteas were special today and deserve full congratulations on winning the T20 series.
"It was a real privilege to have been at the Wanderers to witness a top-class all-round performance by our team.
"The Proteas have fought back well over the last few weeks and they can be proud of winning both the limited over formats against England.
"I also want to take this opportunity to thank the England team for the excellent cricket they have played throughout the tour and look forward to meeting them again at the ICC World twenty20 next month in our opening match."
The sides will meet in India in late March at the World Twenty20.
