Proteas spinner Tabraiz Shamsi says no one spoke to him after the hammering he took from England in the first T20I in Bristol.
The 32-year-old went for 49 runs in his three overs as the batsman made the most of the small boundaries at the Bristol County Ground.
However, Shamsi bounced back well, taking 3-27 in Cardiff and a career-best 5-24 in Southampton as the Proteas claimed a 2-1 series win.
“Credit has to go to management and the players in the group because no one had a word with me,” Shamsi said when asked about his Bristol nightmare.
“That’s the best way of dealing with things. It was an anomaly and on a field like Bristol, it looks bigger on TV, but it’s quite small.
“Those things happen, but as a bowler, that’s all I keep in my mind as we play T20 cricket against world-class players.
“These things happen, so you just learn from it and there’s not much that you need to majorly change, it’s just an odd performance here and there.
“I didn’t give it too much thought because there wasn’t a lot to think about.
“What’s important is to know what the management staff and your captain want from you,” Shamsi added.
“There was a lot of talk when Immy [Imran Tahir] retired and he was a big weapon in our attack and I had to fill his shoes.
“I don’t see things like that as I have to learn about my game, from where I adapt to what is wanted from me.
“I go on what the captain on the day wants, along with Quinton de Kock behind the stumps, from where I gauge what the team wants and adapt to the match situation.”
