Johannesburg: South Africa‘s head coach Russell Domingo has urged his side to play together as a unit if they want to turn their performance around against New Zealand. The two sides will be playing the series decider of one-day international at Durban today. Domingo admitted that every series is important, and added that his squad is also aware of the significance of winning the ongoing series. Sports24 quoted Domingo, as saying that the tourists are a quality side with good depth. He also said that New Zealand consist of some match-winners and still have a nucleus of good players.

Earlier, New Zealand claimed an eight wicket win over South Africa in the second ODI match at Potchefstroom. With the win, New Zealand leveled the series 1-1 as South Africa had earlier claimed a 20-run win over New Zealand in the first ODI.

There were similar war cries from the New Zealand camp earlier, with Adam Milne asking batsmen to be on top of their games in order to combat the might of bowlers like Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander on a expectedly seaming wicket at Durban. Milne, however, also said that New Zealand’s success wasn’t surprising even though they lacked the presence of key players like Brendon McCullum, Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Ross Taylor.
