Johannesburg, Jan 16 (IBNS) South Africa captain Graeme Smith said his side was not smart with the bat as his side lost the second One-day International by one-run against India at the Wanderers here Saturday.
“We weren’t smart enough, especially with the bat,” Smith said.
South Africa allowed India to defend the second-lowest total of 189 at Wanderers, after the hosts had reached a position from where they could have won with at least ten overs to spare.
“Our batsmen needed to show more commitment. I don’t think it was a free flowing wicket, it was not easy to play your shots, you had to work hard out there. It required a solid performance,” he said.
“We needed to be a bit more solid, instead of searching for those glory shots.”
