Johannesburg: After a resounding win in the first of the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series, South African skipper AB de Villiers has said that he wants his teammates to remain grounded as he feels the visitors will bounce back in the remaining two games.

" doesn't mean that we are certainly going to win the series. There is a lot of hard work to be done. Durban will be a lot more suited to the Indians and they can bounce back. So it is important to keep our feet on the ground," said de Villiers in a post-match press conference.

Despite the hammering his batsmen handed out to Indian bowlers, de Villiers felt the visitors cannot be called bad. (South Africa trounce India by 141 runs - all match pics)
