De Villiers says Proteas 'perfectly capable' of winning major ICC tournaments
Johannesburg, Oct 5(ANI): South Africa captain AB de Villiers has claimed his team has the talent to win major ICC tournaments like the World Cups, and added that they crashed out of the Twenty20 World Cup because they couldn't click as a team.
The Proteas finished top of their group in the opening round of the global showpiece, but finished last in their Super Eights group, going down in successive matches against Pakistan, Australia and India.
"I truly believe we have the squad and the talent in South Africa to win major tournaments. It's hard to come back in a quick tournament like the T20," Sports24 quoted De Villiers, as saying.
"You need your momentum, you need to close down games that you control. We controlled the Pakistan game. We fought back really hard and we were in control," he added.
"It was up to us to win and we didn't. After that, we faced Australia and India, two world class teams like we all know. The Aussies were just on fire that day. We played well in patches but they never really allowed us to control that game," he said. (ANI)
