But in Test match cricket, it was pressure I think which gave us a little bit of window period, especially yesterday (Thursday) to score a little bit freer and chip away at the target we needed. It worked out well in our hands and played nicely into our hands.

“I’m not going to disclose something as a result of what occurs in the workforce, stays in the workforce. Basically, after dropping the first Test, we knew the guys must get up from a character level of view. We needed to make the guys a bit extra of acutely aware effort and be a lot extra conscious of what place they’ve inside the facet, purely to carry the finest out of that participant. Ultimately, bringing the finest out of the participant will affect the setting.

“I am glad, very, very relieved and thankful to all the guys for responding the way they did. This was a proper squad effort and by no means, can’t pinpoint the guys. Sure, a few individuals did exceptional things in the series.

“Going ahead, it has all the time been a squad effort. Even to the guys who did not play, they stood up in the proper events for us. Those chats will keep behind the closed doorways for us.”

Speaking about the nature of chats with players like Rabada and others in the team, Elgar explained, “You received to have a mutual respect inside the squad, with each particular person participant. That’s a two-method avenue which lets you have the conversations we had in the final two weeks. The gamers wanted to take them on board and want to know I’m not there to control them or do injustice to their careers as I want them to be working at a degree which is respectable at the degree of Test cricket.

“If you want to be the best, you need to operate at a level like we have done in the last few weeks. But you need to be pretty consistent around that. I think I have a pretty good relationship with everyone in the team, be it the oldest or youngest player in the team.

“I wish to suppose I join with them in a fairly great way, a particular method the place the guys suppose that Dean’s doing this for the proper causes. It comes into the shopping for course of, the place the guys have to offer in to the message that I converse of and echo all through the altering room. It all boils right down to respect, it is advisable to respect one another irrespective of age and the way lengthy you might have been taking part in the recreation.

“We all play for one cause, that is to win the game and another cause, which is playing for the country. We all are influenced in our own respective ways bearing in mind that the team’s way is the only way going forward. It sounds a little bit harsh but if you want to be the best, you need to have that skill which you need to have and the guys have started to develop as this process of our journey has continued. I like to think I am not offending anyone by the language I use, the words I speak just to know that I need to motivate and influence this group.”
