He said, "There was a lot of pressure coming in for some of the new guys and I thought they played really well. Obviously we didn't get a winning start but I thought they held their nerve very well."
"Unfortunately when there was pace on the ball it looked like it was easier to bat on, so it was about taking the pace off. But then they batted really well."
He also said Indian bowlers' fine display in the death overs didn't help their cause.
"I think we got off to a good start. Towards the end they bowled pretty well, they understood the conditions a lot quicker than we did," he said.
South Africa face the hosts in the 3rd T20I at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, on September 22, with India having a 1-0 lead, after the first fixture was washed out.Related Articles:-
