George Bailey adresses press after Australia’s loss to South Africa
George Bailey said that despite the loss, they had posted enough runs on the board against South Africa in the second One-Day International (ODI) of the triangular series.
Bailey said that the wicket was not doing much, hence two new balls weren’t going to make a difference. But he felt the bowlers needed the find ways to pick wickets. In their past few matches, Australia have posted 300+ scores but have ended up on the wrong side of the result.
At Harare, Aaron Finch’s ton helped them post a formidable score of 327 for seven. In reply, South Africa were 57 for two inside 10 overs. Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers went on to score centuries and shared a 206-run stand to take the team to victory.
