However, his loud laugh on question ‘If the Indian bowling was “easy meat” for openers?” was telling another story.
He was talking with media after the skipper de Villiers words after the comprehensive victory in the second one day against Indian side.
Amla and his partner Quinton de Kock have also equaled a record of back to back 150 runs against Indian bowling.
Amla was later on asked “if the Indian bowling was “easy meat” for the openers.”
“You want such a controversial thing for me to say,” the batsman said while busting into loud laugh.
As CricInfo has reported him saying:
“Nothing at all like that. Fortunately for me and Quinny [de Kock] – to score runs you need things to go your way. In both games, we could have got caught with leading edges, caught third man… Things have just gone our way in the last two games. India have bowled well upfront. We haven’t gone off to blistering starts, just knocked it around a bit and bided our time. In the first game, AB and JP [Duminy] were the guys who did a bulk of the damage at the back end. Before that, they had bowled quite well. So there is no such thing as easy meat. We have fortunately got things going our way.”
