Global (27 June 2024) – The Proteas went up against Afghanistan in the World T20 semi-finals, winning their place in the final. It was a bowler’s game, with the team powering through 9 wickets with 67 balls to go. This moment was huge for the Proteas as they made their way to the finals for the first time in a very, very long time.

The team has had a tough decade, but a comeback is in the making right here, thanks to the perfect mix of team camaraderie, player talent, coaching staff, and national support.

The match, which took part in the very early hours of Thursday morning, was played at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba, Trinidad and Tobago. Afghanistan elected to bat, and the game began.

This is the first time the Proteas have made it to the finals, a history-making moment for the team! They are heading off to Barbados now to get ready for the big day!

South Africa’s Marco Jansen was named the player of the match, adding the cherry on top of the victory. If you are keen to catch the highlights, you can do so on the World T20 website here.

The second semi-final is between India and England, and we know many South Africans are looking for another reason to beat England. We shall see who gets to be in that final match against us, in just a few hours!

Cricket South Africa expressed its gratitude to South African fans who have supported the team during the ICC T20 World Cup. Now is the time for the whole nation to wear their Green and Gold this Friday, send messages and videos of encouragement, and get behind our boys! Let’s do this, South Africa!
