Cape Town - The South African team and their supporters hardly
need reminding of the vast improvement required ahead of it, but there seems
little room for grumbling about their pool and fixture list for the 2015 World
Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
You don’t have to spend too much time in front of a
calculator or studying cricket records to realise that all of Zimbabwe, Ireland
and a yet-to-be-decided qualifier, at the very least, should end below the
Proteas even if they have an unexpected hiccup or two along the way in a pool
also including West Indies and Pakistan.
