ICC World Twenty20
JP writes for Sport24
Bridgetown - It feels great to be writing for Sport24 throughout the ICC World Twenty20 because I think it’s important for our fans back home to see what goes on behind the scenes during a tournament. GALLERY: South Africa v Afghanistan
We put everything into our performances when we represent our country, but I also want to be able to share some pics from the times when we are more relaxed.
Last night’s victory over Afghanistan was a good one for us because we have worked hard the last couple of days which has put the benchmark higher for us. We have now started the tournament the way we intended to.
It’s always difficult to play an opponent like Afghanistan who you don’t know too much about, but we did well in the field and Dale (Steyn) and Morne (Morkel) were brilliant first up which didn’t give them much chance.
We are in a World Cup, but it’s also important to balance the serious with some down time so here’s a pic of Dale, AB (de Villiers) and myself from our snorkeling experience in Barbados. The boys had a great time in the sea, the water was fantastic. It was a good team outing, we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Keep an eye out for my next picture from the West Indies, it’s such a beautiful place.
