De Villiers confident of sustained ODI success for Proteas in future
Johannesburg: AB de Villiers is confident his South African one-day team would consistently get success in the fifty-over format in future, ahead of their second match against Pakistan at Centurion on Friday.
The one-day skipper did, however, ask fans to be patient with the team after they won the first game by 125 runs in Bloemfontein last Sunday. De Villiers told a South African website the performance in the first ODI was a big step in the right direction, but there are four matches left in the series and they are far from the finished product yet.
The Proteas have been inconsistent in the 50-over format in the last few years and De Villiers said they were working hard on improving all their on and off-field processes, which would eventually result in more consistent results. De Villiers added they are doing things more consistently well than they did in the past, adding their training, their video analysis and basically everything they do, off and on the field, has improved since Gary Kirsten has been head coach.
De Villiers added they have also lost some senior players and the new guys will have time to find their feet at this level, adding he firmly believes that it`s only a matter of time before they start delivering the sort of performances the public is used to seeing from their Test team.
