Dhaka, Mar. 22: South African all rounder Faf du Plessis struck a confident note when he said the Proteas shouldn't have too much depth in every department for World Cup quarterfinal opponents New Zealand to counter, providing his team maintains its form.
"I'm happy with playing New Zealand. Even if we were playing any of the other teams, we wouldn't have been too worried. We specifically said we didn't want to focus on who we''re playing and have our minds distracted," the Herald Sun quoted Du Plessis, as saying.
He added: "If we prepare well and we're ready for the game and play to our full ability, we're confident we'll win the quarterfinal."
Du Plessis acknowledged that New Zealand could be dangerous, but added: "I'm not too worried about what they've got. If we bowl well, field well and bat well, we''ll win the game."
