Vernon Philander is the Man of the Match

AB de Villiers(SA): Very very happy with the performance again. You got to win three in a row to win the world cup. We did that today, winning 3 in a row. They lost a few quick wickets and anything above 200 would have been a good score. Even I have been a part of a losing side a number of time. So, they need to pick themselves up. West Indies are a world class team and have world class players.

Jason Holder (WI): We just batted poorly. There's no way to sum it up. We kept losing wickets there. Very disappointed. We didn't make amends in this game. We have got a few senior players, who have not stepped up so far. We want to finish well in the last two games and make amends. We just have to bat well and out bowling needs to improve as well. It was a bit slow. Once you got settled, you can bat well. The South Africans did that. We lost the Test series, made amends in the T20s and now back to that again.
