South Africa captain AB de Villiers said his side’s three-wicket win over reigning champions England was an encouraging sign ahead of this month’s World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.
De Villiers, asked if victory boded well for the team’s World Twenty20 chances, replied: “Definitely, it’s very similar to what we are expecting.
“There was a little bit of turn, it was quite slowish. It was really good preparation. The bowlers had really clear plans and I’m proud of the way they came out,” he said.
