South Africa underperform at the wrong time

The Proteas had already performed well in the previous encounters. They just needed a win against the Netherlands to confirm their spot in the semis. Considering the Dutch squad was less experienced, South Africa was backed to do the job.

However, that did not happen. Although the bowlers were decent, the batters had a rough day at the office. Under pressure, they wilted and in a matter of a few minutes, South Africa lost their way in the game. With them not having a great depth in batting, they lost out on the chance to chase the score.

Temba Bavuma could be shown the door from South Africa T20 squad

The presence of Temba Bavuma in the T20I squad has been a debate for a very long time. Moreover, as the skipper of the squad, Bavuma’s place was not at all justified. The player hardly scored runs in 2022 and whenever he did score, it came at a poor strike rate. This continued in the T20 World Cup, as well. Now that South Africa might get knocked out of the T20 World Cup in a short while, fans are already looking at what the Proteas can do next. It needs to be noted that South Africa actually has great options to replace Bavuma. While Reeza Hendricks is already available, Janneman Malan is also an option. Of course, Dewald Brevis will anyways come into the XI in a few months going by his current form. Here is how Twitter reacted to Bavuma and his performance in the T20 World Cup:
