AB de Villiers (SA): It was a good game today. We did it our way. We followed out gameplans and set it up nicely for the middle order. There's been a lot of hundred in the past few months and it was always good. Very proud of the way Hash and Faf fought today. He will always be a rock for us. Hopefully, his form can continue for the tournament. All the bowlers, every bowler tried picking wickets and they did a great job. It is very much a match to match basis decision. As long as I am comfortable and the team follows the decision, everything will be alright. You always want your top 6 to do well, I would say that your 6,7,8 win a lot of games for you. Everyone who has got an opportunity there has done well for us. 

Porterfield (IRE): It was difficult. We got one early breakthrough, we wanted a couple more, but it didn't happen. That's part of cricket as well and you have to move on from that. It was a very good pitch and it was difficult to dislodge those wickets. We tried slowing it down but we wanted more at the beginning. They bowled really well, but all credit to the lower order for fighting it out. Every game is a big game, the game against Zimbabwe will be big
Hashim Amla: Fortunately, we got off to a good start. Myself and Faf just got something going and then we started playing a few shots. We had wickets in hand, so we kind of had luxury to do that. We just thought that let's have a go and see what happens, it came off fortunately as well. Rest of the guys have been playing well, it is aways good to get over the line. Any hundred is a hundred, I just like to get some runs. I am just happy that I am getting for the boys at the back end. The guys bowled exceptionally well, the bowlers maintained the full intensity on the field and it was a comprehensive win.

Hashim Amla is the Man of the Match for his 159
It is a comprehensive win for South Africa, they beat Ireland by 201 runs.
