South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma expressed his disappointment in getting eliminated from the tournament ahead of the knock-out stages of the T20 World Cup 2022.

The Proteas assembled one of the finest teams in the showpiece event, with explosive batters and talented bowlers, but failed to earn the qualification of semi-finals.

In the first game of the tournament, South Africa shared points with Zimbabwe, due to the incessant rain. However, they produced a fightback to post 205 against Bangladesh, courtesy of Rilee Rossouw’s second T20I century and won by 104 runs.

The Bavuma-led side continued their fine performance to register a clinical victory over India by chasing a target of 134 easily, on the back of impressive bowling performances.

In the post-match conference, Bavuma reckoned the chokers tag will remain with the team until they win crunch moments and the results come in their favour.

Furthermore, Bavuma thinks the decision to bowl first against the Netherlands backfired them. He added that they could not pressure on the Dutch team, resulting in them posting a competitive score.

“We have nothing to blame. Everything was in our hands as a team. We had the confidence, we had the belief and I would say we had the form behind us, but when it mattered we couldn’t do the business.”

Head coach Mark Boucher stated that the team’s energy was not up to the mark against the Netherlands.
