KARACHI: South African skipper Quinton de Kock on Friday conceded that his batsmen couldn’t do well after their seven-wicket misfortune to Pakistan in the main Test at National Stadium Karachi.
Conversing with media through an online gathering, the 28-year-old said that the batsmen’s capacity to play spinners was the significant contrast between the different sides.
“The distinction by the day’s end was the way they [Pakistan] played the turn and the manner in which we didn’t. I feel that is the greatest thing that truly is bubbling,” de Kock said.
The South African commander, notwithstanding, safeguarded his bowlers saying that they progressed nicely. “I think they bowled truly well. Pakistan weren’t going at a major run rate for a large portion of their time until the later piece of the subsequent innings. In this way, I think bowlers bowled truly well,” he said.
De Kock lamented South Africa’s delicate excusals in the primary innings saying that 220 was not a decent all out for his side.
“I think toward the day’s end one, we were ahead, yet it’s not actually where we needed it to be in the game. [Scoring] 220 on that wicket in the main innings wasn’t sufficient. At the point when you’re at the plate first, you need a major first inning score,” he said.
“I realize that we had them 40 for four or something to that effect and that is an extraordinary beginning for our bowling however that is a sign we let ourselves down the principal innings that was you know the point in the game where we let ourselves down the most,” de Kock added.
