Proteas ready for ICC World Cup
Proteas captain, AB De Villiers, believes that his team has what it takes to win the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, which begins on February 14th.
South Africa will first be facing Zimbabwe at Seddon Park in Hamilton, Australia on the 15th of February, with De Villiers saying that the side has the right players to make it all the way through.
“It's just now a matter of going there and finding a way to do so,” De Villiers said.
“That's always the difficult part, but we're prepared to put in the hard yards. We are going there to bring the cup back.”
Cricket South Africa (CSA) officially announced the team which will be participating in the ICC on Thursday.
“Quinton de Kock is the only injury concern at the moment,” commented CSA selection committee convener, Andrew Hudson.
“Our medical committee has backed his inclusion in the squad at this stage so there is confidence that he will be ready for the tournament.
“There are eight players with previous World Cup experience – De Villiers, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, Wayne Parnell, Morne Morkel, Dale Steyn and Imran Tahir – so we feel we have a nice blend of experience of major knock-out tournaments plus the freshness that will come from the relative newcomers,” he added.
