How is it possible that the Proteas have never won a single knockout match at a World Cup?
Are our cricketers unable to think on their feet?
Is it fair to call them 'chokers'?
What can be done to win at last?
Since South Africa's readmission to world cricket in 1991, the Proteas have played in six World Cups (and four World T20 tournaments) and have been knocked out in all of them. The reasons range from the weather and misreading the Duckworth-Lewis table to being outwitted on the field itself. In the most recent tournaments, though, they have shown a scandalous lack of nerve in the pressure-cooker of international knockout cricket.
