AB de Villiers: Man of the Match
I learnt a lot from Jonty Rhodes when I was growing up. I was disappointed to get out, would have loved to get 70-plus. I was watching closely the kind of shots that were working. There was bit of pace and bounce. The Bangladeshi players were feeling the pressure. We did not have to try too much, just time the ball. I really enjoy this format. You can capitalize in the first six overs.
