The South African cricket was isolated from the international cricket, as a result of ban by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 1970, because of its government's apartheid policies. It was the period when South Africa was emerging as the top test-playing nation in the world, after purging the powerful Australians 4-0 with ease. South Africa was readmitted to the international cricket in 1991, and became full member of the International Cricket Council with Test and one-day international status. They played their first ever One-day international against India on November 10, 1991.
South Africa surprised the cricketing world in their first ever world cup appearance in 1992, when they reached up to the semi-finals. In the ICC World Cup 1999, South Africa again reached to the semi-final but lost to Australia, as a result of tie. Today, the South African team has emerged as one of the most elite teams, competing with Australia for the acknowledgement as the best cricket team in the world.

I hear ya ramesh

Like you said, Dravid and sewag done good, but the rest of the team let
there verry passionet fans DOWN. I feel for the indians as they fuckin love
there cricket. Cricket to the indians is like hip hop to the Afro Americans.

But the show must go on.

I must admitt ramesh, I am looking forward to watchin South africa against
Australia. Should be a great match to. Both teams will want to win, so they
can take more points in to the super eights.. Plus there is that, Who is the best One day team thing.. I wish your team all the best bruva.

I aint gonna pick another tip, cuz i clearly dont know shit as india are out.

I will be rooting for the windies though, And they are looking great, but we will
see.. Pakistan and india out. Wow, Never saw that comming bruv.

Damn, The Aussy's have got off to a great start

South africa just got a wicket though, Think they need a few more quick
wickets to put on some pressure cuz Australia are slammin the runs on.

I know you dont like Australia Ramesh, But they are a great team to watch
when they flow.

they the most competitive & we also got a long rivalry with them makes great entertainment
hassey made the fastest 100 in world cup cricket & australia made more than 350 runs in their 50 over it's a good score but now it's time for the warriors to come out & play

we chasing 378 & we playing like south africans
we lost the game we had a little bit of bad luck & never recovered
there is nothing more in the world that i hate more than defeat
i know my team we won't get up from this but it's cool we had the no.1 spot even if it was only for a short time
i am very proud of my team
fuck that we'll get up
see where we went wrong pontin is a good captain we did learn a few things
use your power plays wisely
if your bowler is not perfoming mix them up
change your batsmans line up to suit the conditions
we will be ready for the next game

I don't really follow cricket that much, like I don't even get the rules yet, but I figured India was gonna lose to Sri Lanka.

What's the chance of Bahamas beating Bangladesh though? Maybe India can bounce back..
