Johannesburg, Feb.8 (ANI): South Africa skipper AB de Villiers has called on his side to stage a strong comeback in the remaining ODIs of the five-match series against England, insisting that the Alastair Cook -led side are not unbeatable.

Describing England as a `confident` side, De Villiers said that although the opponents were playing really good cricket, he added that South Africa could give them a strong competition, Sport24 reported.

De Villiers also stressed that his side had a couple of opportunities to turn the things around for themselves in their previous two matches, but added that they unfortunately failed to do so.

South Africa are currently trailing 0-2 in the series following their five-wicket defeat in the second ODI and 39-run defeat in the opening match.
