Proteas Believe They Can Play Even Better Against Australia

Tazmin Brits, a Proteas star, has remarked that South Africa can still get better after putting on an outstanding all-around performance against England in the Women’s T20 World Cup semifinals, despite the fact that she acknowledges they will be underdogs in the final against a dominant Australian team.

The Proteas had previously lost to England in the semifinals of the T20 World Cup in 2014, the one-day World Cup in 2017, and the 2022 World Cup. However, they put those defeats in the past and achieved a historic feat by becoming the first South African cricket team to advance to the final of a major competition.

While Australia was expected to emerge as strong favourites in the trophy battle at Newlands on Sunday, seeking their third consecutive victory, in search of their third straight T20 world title, Brits insisted they would not be intimidated.

“Australia might be on top, but at the end of the day you play the ball, you don’t play the players, and I think that’s what we did against this England side,” said Brits.

“We didn’t play the England side we always lost against… so we’ll take it as it comes, but we’re very excited to be in the final.”

She was strongly supported by the rest of the Proteas team as the Brits scored 68 runs and grabbed four catches against England on Friday.

Opening partner Laura Wolvaardt scored 53 runs, and they finished with an outstanding six-run triumph thanks to seam bowler Ayabonga Khaka’s 4/29 and experienced Shabnim Ismail’s 3/27.

The Brits sent a subtle warning at Australia, hinting they would need to perform at their peak if they intended to win the title again, but the hosts thought they could play even better.

“I think today we almost clicked (against England). The batting was a lot batter but I think the bowling in the powerplay could have been tighter,” she said.

“But I’m hoping everything clicks when we go up against Australia.”
