Bailey: No. And that is saying something with the way we are playing. It was a very difficult surface when we were batting. We have to look at how we are playing and have to come up with something. There was plenty of crossover when we were 15/4. Full credit to DD. JP (Duminy) captained them very well. We are just trying to get the boys to free up a bit. We have not given the guys to express themselves. DD went through this last year. It is making sure we still enjoy the game.

Duminy: It's definetly good to get a win going into the second half of the tournament. We have been a little bit inconsistent. I am pretty happy with the way things turned out. Unbelievable. Just to have him (Zaheer) in the field today, was great to have him back. He (Tahir) has been very effective for us in the backend, but he couldn't get it right today. It was great to see the two youngsters put up such a performance
