Good win over Pakistan.Hash stands tall. But can we overcome the Windies?

Hashim Amla stood tall again as South Africa won the crucial encounter against Pakistan to dump Pakistan out of the tournament and increase their chances. Its now a do or die clash against the West Indies to progress through to the Semi Finals of the tournament.

Looking at South Africas performance I feel satisfied. They Dug Deep. Ofcourse the top order and Hash Delivered to start a decent platform. Its always great to see Hash perform and the buzz inside of the Masjids while a game is going on is always something to look forward to especially when Hash bats. He was his usual self  and its so important for South Africa. Its also good to see skipper AB in good nick. These two guys will prove vital should we qualify.

Whats was shocking again was the Run Outs. Why are we repeating these mistakes. We have to iron it if we want to achieve in this tourney. I was also impressed with the notion to attack with spin. Peterson has proved me wrong time and time again and I feel we have something in Phangiso.

The One thing though we dont want is losing to the West Indies. Im confident we have a side worthy of beating them but two factors emerge when we play the Windies. The first being they have beaten us in tournaments when it mattered. How could I forget the 1996 World Cup when we ran into Lara and in our own back yard in 2003. Those defeats were vital. The second factor is that they have the individuals this time around that can take the game away from you. Samuels,Sammy,Pollard, Bravo and Gayle ofcourse.

As my grandfather said. If it happens to be one of these Fullahs day. South Africa are gone

For now.We keep the faith and must win this Do or Die Clash with the Windies.
