Our Proteas team, are embarking on a journey for the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
In his poetic and charismatic send-off to the players’ the Minister of sport Fikile Mbalula says, this team selected from our crème de la crème represents a harbinger of a future social cohesive, non racial and united South Africa. The Proteas are a product of the visionary endeavors of Nelson Mandela, Steve Tshwete and Kepler Wessels, amongst others.
He continued: “We believe in you the Protea Team. You should have long captured the trophy as early as 1992 and 2007. Today we owe it to our people, erase the sad memories of Bangladesh in 2011 and bring joy to motherland as you bowl and bat for the people of Mzansi in this Championship. We will live and die with you.
It is now or never! South Africa your time has arrived to conquer the world stage of cricket.”
Coach of the Proteas, Russell Domingo said they have a history to write at the World Cup.
Ululations and vuvuzelas reverberated from supporters who came in large numbers.
Good Luck boys!
