Cape Town: Continuing their winless run after losing to India by six wickets on Wednesday, South African batsmen Hashim Amla has admitted that the team is in a "bad situation".

"We're in a bad situation. We've played pretty average cricket and we need to turn it around by playing our best cricket," Sport24.co.za quoted Amla as saying.

 

It was the third match for Proteas in the World Cup, they lost the earlier two at the hands of England and Bangladesh. Against hosts England, they faced a massive 104-run defeat, while Bangladesh beat them by 21 runs.

Despite losing all the three matches, Amla stated that there is no lack of motivation and they are doing everything they can.

"I don't think there is a lack of motivation. Body language will always come up when you lose a game or two, or three. I certainly don't think anyone could fault body language today (Wednesday)... we fought. Everybody wants to perform ... there is no doubt about that. We're out there practising and doing everything we can to put the numbers on the board," he said.

 

South Africa will now compete with West Indies on June 10 and Amla feels that they have enough time to introspect.

"We're all disappointed, but we've got five days before the next game. You've got to allow some time for guys to introspect," he said.
