Proteas don't have BMT

Take a look at how Sri Lanka bowled the last 4 overs. Two world class batsmen in a final against 2 seamers when the seamers were in general going for far more than the spinners. They bowled the most perfect balls for 20 of the 24 balls. No wides, perfect Yorkers. Under enormous pressure they did it time and time again, the pressure didn't get to them because they have what it takes in the heat of the moment in the most important game of the tournament. Yes its talent, but talent that delivers under the biggest pressure = BMT. AB is a classic example of someone who has 0 BMT, he can only bat when a brilliant platform has been delivered for him, WTF is that all about!! I don't see Kohli crying about coming in when the score is 0/1 and not making a big score!! Sorry mate but your comment is fictitious!! SA cricketers are notorious for their lack of BMT, Kallis and AB, arguably our finest ever batsmen in the modern times both are woeful. Another word for lack of BMT, choking!! SA did well this time against India with the bat although odd that once again AB didn't do a thing, however our bowlers were in my opinion give the wrong tactics, why couldn't we bowl the Yorkers like the SL could, don't we have the skill or was it again misguided tactics??
