The Proteas have beaten Indian side by 141 runs in one match and by 134 in the other, proving to be top team in the world.
“We are nowhere near the No. 1 team in the world at the moment even though we have beaten them two in a row now,” CricInfo quotes de Villiers after the match.
“They are a world-class unit. They are world champions. I can go for an hour if I talk about the Indian team. [I] still expect them to come back in the third ODI. A lot of pride to play for. It will be massive for us to beat them 3-0. A lot to play for. They are still a world-class unit. We will always have respect for them as a team.”
Looking vividly please, setting aside bad memories of recent defeat in the ODI series against Pakistan, South African captain must have been happy to beat number one team in ODIs in consecutive matches.
