South Africa Team Analysis
South Africa side despite having the great names in their teams didn’t look good in this world cup. Their batsmen have looked out of form and their bowlers have conceded too many runs. South Africa has always felt pressure in the world cup matches and they really need to improve. They are the strongest side in the world and ended up in the 8th position. They have won only 2 matches out of 8 matches they have played.
Their batsmen have not performed in the tournament and this has been the major reason for their losses. They have managed to win their last game against Sri Lanka by 9 wickets comfortably.
