Proteas

 

 

The Proteas will have to look deep and hard to overcome the chokers tag. The South African national cricket team has always been among the favourites to win titles, but have often lacked the big match temperament (BMT), which can lead to them disappointing the nation.

AB de Villiers and the team have declared that they have full intention to win the tournament and prove the critics and doubters wrong. The Proteas’ first match will be on 18 March 2016 against England. The Proteas are the most in-form team going into the tournament, having never won the ICC T20 World Cup before. This is their best shot at it.

The Proteas have been drawn in Group 1 along with England, West Indies, Sri Lanka and winner of the Group B qualifier.

We hope our boys do us proud and bring the title home.
