When a batsman scores 150, and you still lose an ODI, then I guess the other 10 need to put their hand up and accept the blame. #INDvSA

A few words from our captain. #ProteaFire

Dhoni: "We lost Ashwin's six overs, which was crucial because he is our best bowler. The plan was working beautifully until then."
