SA vs BAN LIVE, T20 World Cup: Dwaine Pretorius ready for Bangladesh challenge in do or die game for South Africa- South Africa bowler Dwaine Pretorius said that he is happy to do an ugly but effective job with the ball as long as it benefits the team.

Proteas captain Temba Bavuma has regularly entrusted his all-rounder to bowl the crucial death overs where he uses a mixture of slower-ball variations to restrict opposition batters.

SA vs BAN LIVE: Speedsters Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, plus ICC Men’s T20I Player Rankings No.1 bowler Tabraiz Shamsi, have all caught the eye ahead of Tuesday’s clash against Bangladesh in Abu Dhabi, but Pretorius is happy to plug away even if his skills are arguably not the prettiest.

T20 World Cup: “If I can do a job for the team, again, and put us in a better situation, I’m willing to do that ugly job if you want to call it that – something that doesn’t always necessarily look the prettiest but it’s very effective. And I’ve built my whole career on that. So, I’m trying to do the best job that I can do for the team,” said Pretorius in an official ICC release.

SA vs BAN LIVE: “Look, obviously I think the dangers at the death are being predictable. So, I’m trying to vary my pace and my lengths quite a bit even though my line is the same, keeping the guys guessing. I’m trying to make sure I’m bowling to the batters’ plan Cs and Ds instead of their plan A. It’s not an ego battle out there; it’s trying to be effective as much as possible,” he added.

Pretorius has identical figures of three for 17 in South Africa’s last two Super 12s Group 1 games, wins against West Indies and Sri Lanka, and shed some light on his variations.

The 32-year-old added: “I’ve worked a lot on different variations of slow balls. So, it’s definitely something that I really have focused on. Obviously, in a T20 World Cup, I think if you only go to one option you might be in trouble.”
