South Africa are one of the strongest teams in world cricket, but, when it comes to major international tournaments like the World Cup, the things get completely different. There have been many legendary cricketers from the Proteas but none of them have been able to take their team even into the final of the cricket World Cup.
South Africa have also earned the tag of ‘Chokers’ in the ICC tournaments because of their England performances in big pressure matches. One of the best examples of this could be the semi final of the 2015 World Cup against New Zealand. However, to get success in the upcoming World Cup, South Africa would have to move on from their past performances. However, the Proteas will be coming to India with a positive attitude after a recent series win against Australia at home.
