Former Royal Challengers Bangalore fast bowler Dillon du Preez participated in an interview with Swagcricket.com recently, where he spoke at length about various topics. The retired cricketer played 92 first-class matches in his career. He never got a chance to play international cricket for the South African cricket team, but du Preez was very impressive in domestic cricket.

The fast bowler has now become the assistant coach of the South African women’s cricket team. Dillon du Preez gave his views on the recently-concluded ICC World Test Championship series between the Indian cricket team and the South African cricket team. Many fans would know that the Indian cricket team lost the series 1-2 despite taking a 1-0 lead over the South African cricket team in the first match of the series at SuperSport Park in Centurion.

Commenting on the Test series win by the South African cricket team, Dillon du Preez said:

“Playing India is always a tough series for Proteas. We did really well to come back after losing the first Test to winning the series 2-1. Great effort from the boys and we are very proud of them.”

“A few players that impressed was definitely Marco Jansen, reminds me of Morne Morkel. Tall and bowling with some heat, obviously just left arm (Laughs). Another player is Thakur was also nice to watch, you get the feeling he gives you a 110% every time he runs in to bowl.”

Dillon compared debutant Marco Jansen to former South African fast bowler Morne Morkel because of his height, pace and heat. It will be interesting to see if Jansen becomes as successful as Morkel.
