Johannesburg, May 11 (ANI): South Africa captain Graeme Smith has said there are no excuses for his team’s early exit from the World Twenty20 cup tournament.
“You can’t go on making excuses,” Sports24.com quoted Smith, as saying.
He seemed to suggest that changes in the national squad were needed to make a mark in the shorter forms of the game.
Cricket South Africa CEO Gerald Majola said: “The early exit yet again by the Proteas from an ICC world tournament is a huge disappointment to say the least. Going into the ICC World Twenty20, the Proteas believed they had all the bases covered to get to the top regarding preparation, skills and support.”
“The hardest pill to swallow now is that the squad was not marginally beaten on any of the finish lines, but faltered well short of their targets in the early stages. We now await an explanation for this from the team and management,” he added. (ANI)
