To be honest I just couldn’t get excited about the cricket WC this year. I’ve been dissapointed so many times by the choking Proteas that I’ve lost all interest in them.
I just knew they were going to choke again and there it is they’ve done it yet again against New Zealand of all sides. New Zealand cricket has been in the dumbs the last 3 years. Really poor. Some reasonable talent but very poor execution.
For this talented SA side with so much bowling and batting dept to lose in such a way against a team struggling to find itself is just an absolute disgrace.
I think SA cricket has to be complimented for the strides they’ve taken in the right direction in terms of more versatility in the side (like I’ve said in my previous post) but this is just too much for this supporter the handle.
To lose if you have a poor team or against a really good team -playing some outstanding cricket- that I can handle. Throwing your wickets away with poor batting and poor running, that I can’t handle. Losing, while you have one of the most versatile and talented sides in the history of SA cricket, against one of poorest performing teams over the last 4 years is too make an absolute mockery of yourself.
Too many withdrawls from my emotional bankaccount when it come to the Proteas. It will take A LOT to get me excited about SA cricket again, if ever. They will always have my support but -like it has been over the last 4 years- it will remain a case of the black sheep brother in jail. You love him but you expect the worse and you don’t talk about him.
Ooch Proteas this one hurts. It really hurts.
