13th African Games: South Africa talks tough ahead of Nigeria clash at games

Posted : 07 March 2024

The captain of the South African cricket team, Nondumiso Shangase, has made it clear that neither Nigeria nor any other country can stop them from claiming gold.

Speaking after a recent training session, Shangase expressed optimism ahead of their opening fixture, where they are undoubtedly considered the favorites.

"Firstly, the team spirit is high coming off a productive training session. We're eagerly anticipating the tournament ahead, and our singular focus is to clinch the gold medal," Shangase said.

"The excitement among us is palpable as we approach the competition's start, particularly with the inclusion of some talented young players. We're all itching to kick off, wishing the action could start today rather than waiting until Thursday.

"We've witnessed significant strides in our training, and each member is eager to contribute, and we are ready. Confidence within the team is at an all-time high, a level I've rarely seen before.

"While I've led the team in previous series, the expectations from our supporters are immense, and I'm committed to inspiring and motivating the players to meet those expectations.

"We're a tight-knit group, and I firmly believe in our collective ability to clinch the gold medal," she added.

South Africa will face Namibia in the opening game before playing against Nigeria and Tanzania.
