I don't think they choked at all....they were beaten by a team in better form than us and better on the day. Take away AB's brilliance and you have a team with some cracks. Steyn, Amla, Philander and De Kock all certainly not playing to form throughout cup; no true 5th bowling option, injuries etc. This isn't to say we couldn't have won - we could have, but it aint a choke in my book at all.

Well probably not choked but didn't pay like they can.. 2 definite missed run outs and one missed catch. Steyn probably had an injury but wasn't firing. Dunno why they took Abbot out the team. Was playing quite well before the inclusion of Philander.. Some unfortunate errors in fielding letting a couple of fours slip through.

One excuse is the rain. It favoured the second team to bat. Telling a team during over 38 they are now only playing to over 43 is a big disadvantage to knowing at over No 1 you are only batting for 43 overs. Other than that we made too many fielding errors.

Why fix it when it is not broken. I think they should have kept Abott. He was firing with all cylinders. But I must say: Do not hang you head boys, you have tried your best. As we say in sport hardy bafana
