Choking on a kiwi fruit
The SA cricket team’s unnecessary defeat by a very average New Zealand team in Dhaka – the sixth time the team has been unexpectedly eliminated – was a blow to cricket supporters and administrators. WHAT OTHERS SAID Virtually every newspaper announced the Proteas are indeed the biggest chokers in world sport. THE NEW AGE said daring and brain power win big matches, and Bafana Bafana’s winning goal against Egypt in the dying moments showed how it must be done. THE CITIZEN said that, with or without the choker label, the team again failed spectacularly. THE STAR said it’s a fact competitors will target you if you have the mental strength of a jelly baby. BEELD said we now need a captain and a team without any choker baggage.
