Rusty took the responsibility upon himself and batted beautifully, getting us to a competitive total.<br /> <br /> "The first 10 overs of our bowling nearly cost us the match," he continued. "They got off to a flyer again but we managed to bring it back nicely, but I feel if we want to go all the way to the final we need to put in some hard work and compete with these guys."<br /> <br /> South Africa now have a chance to reach the final, if they beat India A on Monday.
