The Proteas are carrying a positive spirit into the fifth match of the six match One Day International series against the world class India at St George’s Cricket Stadium in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.

After losing the opening three matches, the Proteas came back firing and beat the Indians with five wickets in Wanderers this past weekend. They need to win the next two matches to draw this series against India.

All-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo says they are not a long way away from tasting victory.

“I think the team has been very positive we’ve obviously been practicing really hard. We have good momentum now from this game, the last game we just played. I think we aren’t that far away from victory, the guys have been working really hard in the nets and we being very specific about our training. We’ve been in a good space and the team environment has been really good.”
