Smith eyeing more glory

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

SOUTH Africa cap­tain Graeme Smith said his team was on the right track to go all the way in the World Cup af­ter an im­pres­sive de­mo­li­tion of Bangladesh on Satur­day. ‘‘ I am very hopeful about win­ning the next three matches, that’s what we have to do,’’ said Smith as South Africa warmed up for the quar­ter-fi­nals by top­ping Group B with five wins in six matches. ‘‘ All the teams go­ing to the knock-out phase want to win the World Cup. We have so far met each chal­lenge be­cause each game we played had dif­fer­ent de­grees of pres­sure.’’ Fast bowler Lon­wabo Tsot­sobe grabbed 3-14 on his World Cup de­but as the Proteas won their last league match by 206 runs at the Sher-e-Bangla sta­dium.
