If Proteas’ performance is anything to go by against Afghanistan, they could proceed to the finals

THE Proteas take a lot of confidence out of their close wins at the ICC T20 World Cup being played in the Caribbean ahead of their big semi-final against Afghanistan.

The Proteas are into the semi-finals following their thrilling 3-wicket win against West Indies on Sunday in Antigua and they will be thinking this is their best opportunity yet to reach the elusive final.

The Proteas have had a tough route into the semi-finals and they have been tested throughout the competition.

That said they have managed to beat the defending champions, England, and beating a team of such high regard will just fuel the fire.

The Proteas coach, Rob Walter, says that while they are unbeaten, it bodes well for the team that they have been able to record wins and played well.

“We will obviously draw confidence from the wins,” said Walter.

“We have won games having played well, and we have won games having not so well – which is always a good sign from each fixture.

“We tried to take each game one at a time on this journey and we’ve managed to string seven wins together. Two more to go and hopefully we win.”

The semi-final is on Thursday from 2:30am.

So, South Africans wake-up and rally behind our boys!
