Johannesburg, Jan.17 (ANI): South Africa skipper AB de Villiers has heaped praise on the England bowlers following his side’s seven-wicket defeat in the third Test in Johannesburg, saying it was the best bowling he has ever faced.
The swashbuckling batsman believes that his home conditions suited extremely well to the England bowler and, therefore, they performed pretty well as a whole unit, Sport24 reported.
Lavishing praise on Stuart Broad, who bagged six wickets by giving away just 17 runs, De Villiers said that the former played a major role in getting the results, but added that the entire unit displayed good skill.
The 31-year-old insisted that although his side tried hard to counter the oppositions’ attack, his side failed to succeed in their efforts.
With the defeat, the visitors lost the four-match series 0-2 following the second match against England ended in a draw.
The two sides will now lock horns in the final match in Centurion, starting from January 22. (ANI)
