A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: AB de Villiers knows Proteas have potential to win major ICC tournaments

De Villiers wants to see more harmony within the team

South Africa limited overs captain AB de Villiers has announced that the Proteas squad has all the talent and potential in the world to win major International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments in the future.

De Villiers added that South Africa failed to get further than the super 8s stage in the ICC World Twenty20 since they did not work well with each other.

Despite topping their group in the opening round of the World Twenty20, the Proteas lost every super 8s match they played and ended up at the bottom of the table.

Sports24 quoted de Villiers as saying: “I truly believe we have the squad and the talent in South Africa to win major tournaments. It’s hard to come back in a quick tournament like the T20, you need your momentum, you need to close down games that you control. We controlled the Pakistan game. We fought back really hard and we were in control, it was up to us to win and we didn’t. After that, we faced Australia and India, two world class teams like we all know. The Aussies were just on fire that day. We played well in patches but they never really allowed us to control that game.”
