In another term, the outcome of Bangladesh’s tour of South Africa can be regarded as practically unexpected comparing to their spirited competency in recent years. At home, the Tigers overshadowed the Proteas and took the ODI series 2-1 even after losing the first match.
Across three formats of the game, the visitors, this time, were completely outclassed, being swept away in two Test matches, three one day international matches and lastly two T20Is as well.
But veteran South African performer Hashim Amla considered it as a rather median phenomenon in the game of cricket.
When he was asked whether he was surprised or not finding Bangladesh as such an easy prey, Amla answered in negative.
He said, “There is nothing to be surprised. These things can happen in cricket. We all know Bangladesh have several worthy performers in the team and they showed their resistance in matches.”
But Hashim Amla also told that he expected a little bit more competitiveness in fifty over games.
“Yes, we thought of going through tougher times in ODIs. It is also true we played much better. It’s always hard to chase a 350 target,” Amla said.
About his personal achievement in the series, Amla said, “To maintain the consistency and enjoying the game is the main thing which is the sole target for me in any series. In that regard, I’m satisfied.”
