South Africa surged to victory in their one-day series against Sri Lanka at the Wanderers on Saturday‚ but AB de Villiers was focused on a bigger picture than that.

“There were too many 3-2 [series scores] in the past and we’ve had too many opportunities to win series 5-0 and 4-0‚” De Villiers said after his team strolled to a seven-wicket win with 18 overs to spare to go 3-0 up in the five-match rubber.

“We are all a bit sick and tired of not taking our opportunities and we are sitting here with another opportunity.

“We try to be clinical about every game we play with a bit more emphasis and importance on getting results in every single game we play and not just trying to win a series.”

Having stuck his neck out in no uncertain terms‚ South Africa’s captain then remembered to wind it back in: “I don’t want to mention it too often and I don’t want to make it our main thing that we play for 5-0 whitewashes‚ because that can backfire quickly.”
