Johannesburg, Jan.8 (ANI): Former South African batsman Daryll Cullinan has urged his country’s players to show maturity by embracing criticism and called on his former side to work upon them.
Cullinan’s comments came after the second Test match between England and South Africa ended in a draw in Newlands.
Reflecting his views, Cullinan, who appeared in 70 Tests and 138 ODIs for South Africa, wrote on his Facebook page, “There is nothing wrong with criticism as long as it is backed up by facts and has credibility behind it.
One of the things that our cricket lacks is the maturity to embrace it, work with it and evaluate its value.”
The 48-year-old believes that accepting criticism positively could only be expected from the people, who are secure enough in their opinion and credibility,Sport24 reported.
England have taken a 1-0 lead in the four-match series following their massive 241-run win in the opening match against the hosts.
The two sides will now lock horns in the third match in Johannesburg, starting from January 14. (ANI)
