The losers of this encounter will be kicked out of the tournament. De Villiers said, “Definitely, that’s the way we have been successful throughout the year. We really clear about what is necessary and needed for us to go out there and win.”
“So, I think the guys generally perform better if they are all relaxed in their mind sets and not too tensed. That is my responsibility to make sure there is no panic, even it is a must win game but we have played last 12 to 18 months and we have had quite a lot of success in those must win games” – de Villiers said.
South African skipper further added, “So, pretty much similar to what we have been doing in last twelve months and same kind of approach for tomorrow’s game as well.”
Beaming with confidence about his personal contribution in the team, AB de Villiers said, “I am still in good form, still hitting the ball well and it’s the matter of going out there and doing it. I still believe I can and hoping to do in the match.”
“I am very excited for this opportunity of my team and for myself to go on a big stage and enjoy the cricket and enjoy each other’s company out there” – he added.
