Cricket South Africa’s board will convene an emergency meeting on July 20 to discuss the Proteas worst World Cup campaign. This comes after Chris Nenzani, President of Cricket South Africa fired a warning shot at the Proteas saying heads would roll after the team’s poor performance at the Cricket World Cup in England. Nenzani did not want to go into much detail, but one thing was certain, that upcoming change is inevitable.
The question is, will change happen with both the administrators and players, or just one of the parties? On the other hand, it seems management had their own set of issues heading to the tournament when the revelation of AB de Villiers’s comeback bid before the world cup was rejected. On top of that, Head Coach, Ottis Gibson and other management team members are nearing the end of their contracts come end of September.
Dale Steyn will be shattered knowing this was his last world cup, after getting injured early in the tournament This is South Africa’s worst Cricket World Cup campaign since the team’s first sojourn in 1992. South Africa will hope to end their World cup campaign with a win against Australia, though Australia is sitting at the top of the table ahead of this clash. David Warner and Steve Smith are preparing to face South Africa for the first time since their suspensions, but the South Africans are expected to treat the pair well.
