Proteas take on Zimbabwe for a place in the finals
The Proteas will be facing Zimbabwe on Thursday for the Triangular series one-day international (ODI) at the Harare Sports Club in Harare, Zimbabwe, and will be bringing in the big guns to win a place in the finals against Australia on Saturday.
Proteas coach, Russell Domingo has said that this game is important for the team adding that they have to have a strong win against Zimbabwe to set a place in the finals.
"It's an important game," Domingo said.
"A couple of guys have been rested this series; Dale and Morné have played two matches in the last three or four weeks, I don’t think it’s important for them to rest, they will be having a few weeks off after this tour.
"AB De Villiers also had a few days of rest, so I think we will be going in with our strongest possible team.
"You want to win every game that you play for South Africa, regardless of who the opposition is.
"It's important for us to win strongly, if we do, it will give us a good boost leading into the final on Saturday."
Due to their average performance against Australia on Tuesday, Domingo noted that the Proteas need to improve various disciplines for this game.
"Obviously with the ball in the back end I don’t feel that we executed our plans well enough there.
"Our team at the moment, with a little bit of a long tail, is set up to have wickets in hand, we were five or six down, those are the areas that we really got wrong yesterday."
