AB bemoans poor batting

South African cricket captain, AB de Villiers, says his side's batting let them down in the second one day international against New Zealand in Christchurch Wednesday.
The Kiwis beat the Proteas by just six runs at the Hagley Oval. Sent in to bat first, New Zealand made 289 for the loss of four wickets in their allotted 50 overs.
South Africa were restricted to 283 for nine.  De Villiers says he wasn't too unhappy about his side's bowling effort. “It's more about the bat. There were quite a few soft dismissals, not enough good partnerships. The ones we actually did get going, the good partnerships that started, we didn't extend. It's crucial to do that if you want to win games of cricket.” South African cricket captain, AB de Villiers, says his side's batting let them down in the second one day international against New Zealand in Christchurch Wednesday.
