South Africa's total of 269-8 was not huge but was still competitive, especially with India batting second under floodlights in the day-night game at Kingsmead. I thought purely we didn't have runs. You could feel that mentally they were still a bit drained.
"When you're chasing five runs an over here, it's pretty easy".
