ODI no. 3143: India v Australia
It's Alive!

The Chokers of Cricket

South Africa have one of the strongest cricket teams walking this Earth. Their win/loss ratio in the late 1990s was the best. South Africa was like a well oiled winning machine which would always seem to just stop working during a prestigious global event.

South Africa has now played in six World Cup tournaments. They have yet to make it to the finals! They have wonderful players. They thrash lesser teams in the usual cricket series but when it comes to big tournaments they are like the anti-Australia: they crumble under pressure.

Citizens of most nations remember the great victories of their teams. South Africans, however, have a history of famous defeats.
