Ingram says 'wounded' Proteas would 'play for pride' in final ODI against Kiwis
South African batsman Colin Ingram has claimed they would look to finish off their three-match one day international series against New Zealand on a positive note to restore some lost pride after the visitors took an indisputable 2-0 series lead on Tuesday.
Five run-outs were the undoing of an inexperienced South African batting line-up, which saw the Proteas suffer a 27-run defeat to the Black Caps in the second ODI in Kimberley, Sport24 reports.
Ingram said South African people don't like to lose at the best of times, adding a home series is massively disappointing to have gone down to New Zealand, so there is a lot of pride to play for.
Ingram added as an ODI unit, South Africa want to get as many wins under the belt as possible, and try to put some of our processes together.
Ingram insisted that the New Zealand outfit were not taken lightly ahead of the one-day series, and added the Proteas would continue to work towards building a formidable ODI team.
Friday's final match in Potchefstroom would be an ideal opportunity for the team to bounce back with a victory.
