Post Match Presentation.
Trumpelmann the Player of the Match: Good result and hopefully we can get a few more. Luckily it went my way today. The victory is for the team and it’s massive for us.
Erasmus: “Delighted to get another World Cup win, we were emotional coming from the first group and we managed to put in another good performance. I guess that’s my normal face (not smiling much). We’ll be taking some good momentum and energy into the other games. We speak more beforehand than try and speak during the game (innings break), with that score we had a clear game plan, and luckily with two partnerships, we got over the line. Ruben sets high standards for himself, he hadn’t quite hit the straps earlier. But today he did and he started off well for us to throw the first punch.”
Berrington: Disappointing day for us, we were about 20-30 runs short and pretty hard to recover after the first couple of overs. Credit to Namibia for bowling so well early on. At that stage (after the collapse) we just needed a partnership. Matthew Cross played well but unfortunately, we didn’t get it going for long. It was good we had a game quickly after that Afghanistan loss, we didn’t have too much time to think about it. We’ve got a few days to reflect and recover, one of our strengths is to stick together. We have to wait and see about Coetzer’s injury.
