since I've been in awe of a cricket team as I am of the Indian team. I'd have to wind back to the Ozzies of the 2000 era with stars like Ponting, Mark and Steve Waugh, Warne and McGrath but before that the great Windies sides of the '90s with stars like Gordon Greenidge, Viv Richards, Holding, Marshall and Joel Garner. As a betting man both those sides would have the current Indian side but with stars like Kohli, Shubman Gill, Sharma, Pandya, Bumrah and Jadeja I reckon they're the next best thing. There simply isn't a weakness in either their batting or their bowling. 

Needless to say the Proteas are in for a mighty challenge not only from out in the middle but also from 100,000 fanatical Indian fans. It is a full-on in your face challenge like they haven't had thus far in the tournament. Question is, can the Proteas meet the challenge full on and win? For that to happen I'm looking to Quinton, Markram, Klaasen, Miller, Rabada, Maharaj and Jansen to do what they've been doing throughout the tournament. There is no sense in a strategy based on hope but there is one in committing to the challenge full on. Bring it on India.

Go the Proteas!

We've done well containing them after that start!

Nov 05, 2023, 12:05

What a catch Quinny!!!

Nov 05, 2023, 12:32

India's start made me think 400 odd was on...well done Proteas!...well done!...go get them!!!!

Nov 05, 2023, 15:03

We were absolutely and utterly destroyed.

Just a gentle reminder that we're still the Proteas . . .

Best word to describe the game.....the Proteas HUMILATED.

What a shocking display with the bat from the Proteas.

Once more it shows how the side depends on Quinton to score quick and big.

A great display for the Indian's with both the bat and ball.

The 2023 CWC is theirs without any doubts.

Often wondered what Swam's was selected for now we know it was for his batting skills.

Even the Indian team was amazed at the four he struck.

DbD yes the Proteas might be back but without the CWC.
