South Africa coach Marc Boucher hailed a first series win for his side following a lean run of form over the last two years after it romped to an easy 2-0 triumph over Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
“First of all, it’s just good to get a win under our belts,” said Boucher after South Africa beat Sri Lanka in the first test in Pretoria last week and followed it up with a 10-wicket triumph in the second test at The Wanderers Stadium on Tuesday.
“Our batsmen got among the runs, spent good time in the middle and so that will have given them a lot of confidence for our next series in Pakistan and then against Australia. They can build on that momentum.”
South Africa now prepares to visit Pakistan for the first time in 14 years for a two test series later this month. It then hosts Australia in February and March.
