In response to the Proteas’ start to the tournament, captain Temba Bavuma said they couldn’t run away from the disappointment of the loss to the Dutch.
“You got to let the emotion kind of seep in,” Bavuma said at the post-match presentation. “Don’t think there is any point in trying to forget what’s happened. It is going to hurt, it should hurt.”
“But then you come back tomorrow, you wake up and we get back onto the journey. Our campaign is not over by any stretch of the imagination, but you’ve got to feel the emotion of today and come back tomorrow with the head held up,” Bavuma added.
