2. Winning moments: In the earlier 0-8 whitewash, we looked hopeless right from the beginning to the end. We never were in a position to win any match and always were trying to save it throughout.
That didn’t happen this time. At Johannesburg we played with grit and determination and made 421 in the second innings and set a world record victory target of 458 runs for South Africa.
Though they did come close, the game could have gone anyway and it was one of the most exciting draws of all time.
At Durban we batted first and put up a respectable 334.
At Auckland we made a brilliant comeback by getting the Opposition out for 105 and then gave a fighting chase for 407 getting 366 runs in the end.
A couple of close decision went against us and we may have won had that not happened.
At Wellington too at one stage we looked like winning, though New Zealand then took the match away from us and in the end it was we who managed a draw.
