Trevor Bayliss: 'We've got some work to do'

England coach Trevor Bayliss admits that there is "work to do" after his side lost their ODI series with South Africa.

England coach Trevor Bayliss has admitted that there is "work to do" after his side lost their five-match ODI series with South Africa on Sunday.

The tourists had been 2-0 up in the series but were then defeated three times in a row to make the Proteas only the third side in history to come back from two matches down and win a series.

Bayliss revealed that "maturity" had played a part in proceedings in the last week, singling out South Africa's AB de Villiers for particular praise.

"We've certainly got some work to do there, and that will come with experience," he told Sky Sports News.

"At some point, that experience has got to pay dividends I hope playing against someone like De Villiers and the way he went about the innings today, is something we can learn from and that will rub off.

"I think to win series, we've got to take a leaf out of De Villiers's book, the way he paced his innings. The best batter in the series did his job today, and showed everyone how to do it. I think the consistency of performance will come with experience, but sooner or later guys have to be accountable."

The two countries will now face off in two Twenty20 games ahead of the World T20 in India next month.
