Living up to it …

June 14, 2009

… And the South African juggernaut keeps rolling. The Proteas have been ruthless so far, sweeping away all opposition in their way. Living up to the reputation of the most balanced side in the World Cup, both the batsmen and the bowlers have come to the party. They have been relentless in their approach and it shows in their no loss record in the tournament so far.

As I had mentioned earlier, they have the strongest bowling line up in the tournament and it showed in them defending a small total against New Zealand and yesterday they came good against the Windies too after their batsmen had put up a strong total.

There isn’t really a weak link in the line up at the moment with the openers giving the perfect start, the likes of AB and Boucher giving a fabulous finish and then the new ball bowlers doing their job with a very good back up job by the spinners.

They look unstoppable at the moment and if India are to hope of making it to the semi-finals, they will have to stop this juggernaut, rolling at a furious pace at the moment.
