Quotes from presentation
"I have enjoyed it here," says Colin Ingram, the Man of the Match. "Just glad to be contributing again. Always great to be back in Bloem. Just enjoyed batting with some of the other guys, who helped me along the way. AB looked like he had his game together, I fed off that, and we ran well. Magic knock from Farhaan. The boys are saying this is the best I have played for OSuth Africa. There are one or two knows where I had to grind it out, but I thoroughly enjoyed it today."
"Very proud of the boys," says AB de Villiers. "Really excites me to see the boys perform like that. The Pakistan bowlers bowled really well up front. That opening partnership freed the middle order up. Colin played a great game, congrats to that. We haven't played great ODI cricket of late. It has been worrying and frustrating. I know this is just one game, but it is a step in the right direction. I know the public in South Africa wants consistency, and we will work on that. I am proud the way bowlers came out and worked in partnerships, picking up wickets at regular intervals. Rory is a very mature performer. he knows his game inside-out. The whole bowling unit was outstanding. It was great to see Ryan perform so well in front of a home crowd. A big hand for the crowd for turning up in high numbers. I know it means a lot to Ryan."
"The way the ball was moving," says Misbah-ul-Haq, "270-280 would have been a par score. The way it was seaming in the start with the little bit of moisture, we should have exploited the conditions better. They kept the wickets for the first 10-15 overs, which was the key. We were looking at 270-280; it could have been a good game then. We need to work a little bit on death bowling and fielding. Too many easy balls and fielding lapses today. We can improve. We can cut down 30-40 runs easily. Then we really have a chance."
That's as comprehensive as ODI wins get. South Africa were more industrious and hands on than Pakistan, which shows in the number of singles and twos they took, and also in the bowling changes of both the sides. Hang around for quotes from the presentation

Wouter: "If Pakistan change tack, and view the rest of the game as a T20 after a top order batting collapse, then they are the perfect team for pulling this off."
Paul: "That six is worth staying up for in itself. What a lovely strike. Apart from Gilchrist, I can't remember a cleaner hitter of the ball for such a consistently long career."
