South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has mentioned that he wouldn’t be making any drastic decisions relating to his personal future following staff’s crushing defeat within the four-Test collection in opposition to England. South Africa misplaced the fourth and last Test on the Wanderers by 191 runs on Monday to lose the collection 1-3, with du Plessis himself coming in for some heavy public scrutiny alongside the best way for each his poor batting type and captaincy.
“It feels like you’ve been pushing me that way in the last while,” du Plessis mentioned on the submit-match press convention when requested if he would resign. “You don’t make decisions like that when you are emotional or disappointed. I know the results don’t look good. It shows you where we are in terms of confidence. It’s time off to get away from cricket and from all the noise, freshen up and then come back for the T20s.”
Already eliminated because the one-day captain, and having presided over eight defeats in South Africa’s final 9 Tests, Faf didn’t have an incredible outing with the bat in opposition to England as he returned with scores of 21, 20, 1, 19, 8, 36, Three and 35 all through the collection.
While admitting that the Proteas have been outplayed in all of the three departments by the Joe Root-led aspect, du Plessis felt his staff lacked probably the most by way of batting.
“I’m sitting here extremely disappointed and I know the coaching staff is disappointed and you guys and the fans should be disappointed, but every team goes through this,” he mentioned.
“Unfortunately, we’re on the stage the place it’s taking place proper now, however I’ve little question that in a yr or two we’ll look again and this will probably be the place it began for us.
South Africa will now face England within the three-match ODI collection starting February 4.
