We are just not meant to win a Cricket World Cup.
One of the most consistent ODI teams over the past 28 years... one would think that we'd at least make one of the finals.

But alas, the Gods have weighed down on us again..

Dale Steyn has been ruled out of the World Cup with a shoulder injury, under 24 hours before their clash against India on Wednesday. Left-arm quick Beuran Hendricks has been approved as his replacement by the ICC's Event Technical Committee of the World Cup.

Steyn had missed South Africa's first two games, against England and Bangladesh, after suffering a second shoulder injury which "has not responded to treatment and has ruled him out of bowling for the foreseeable future," according to a CSA release. The injury had also cut short his IPL campaign with Royal Challengers Bangalore.

That is sad news about Dale Steyn. He would have added some much-needed confidence to the team.

Our already slim chances of making it into the knockouts are now looking non-existent.

Sad news indeed about Dale but cricket being a team sport is never dependent on one particular player........the Protea problems I'm afraid to say are far more deep-rooted.

Most teams rely on 1 or 2 players.



West Indies (though I am super surprised by them of late)

So it isnt an issue that resonates only with us.
