World 20-20: Numb, dumb Proteas could not pace their chase, and have to depart

Subscribe to Oneindia News

Cape Town, May 11 (ANI): When you look back on the World Twenty20 event as a whole, South Africa was not at the races, because they barely even poked their heads out of the stables.

There was only one strong performance that clinically saw off New Zealand, but after that, came successive losses in 48 hours to England and Pakistan.

The South Africans are now packing their bags for home.

The Proteas were uninspiring and failed to learn the lessons of their failed chases against India and then England, when they could not establish momentum at the top of the order and the asking rate climbed and climbed with nobody appearing to give a hoot as the nudging and caressing for singles continued complacently.

It has been a problem throughout the tournament for South Africa. The pacing of the South African innings has been a standout problem through the Caribbean venture and it sealed their fate, reports sports24.com. (ANI)
