“This morning a lot of people wrote us off and the character that we have shown to pull this off, I am very satisfied with the result,” he was quoted as saying by PTI.
His third Test hundred came in the post-tea session, when South Africa set themselves up for the win. But then AB de Villiers got out and du Plessis himself was run-out. It changed the complexion of the game.
“I was batting very well until the hundred, but then emotion took over me. There was a lot of work to be done and we would have liked to win the game and be part of the best Test match ever. But I am very satisfied. We did something similar in Australia and then we turned the momentum around, so we can hope for the same here,” du Plessis added.
