The long wait has come to an end. The ‘chokers’ are back. South Africa, skipper AB de Villiers is sure about that no one can stop his boys from taking the World Cup this time.

One of the world’s leading batsman De Villiers was full of confidence on the evening of the semi-final against New Zealand.

The second semi-final match is between the former winner Australia and last World Cup champions India on Thursday in Sydney and the champion team will face the ‘chokers’ next weekend in Melbourne.

De Villiers said that they are confident enough and he feels that the team is in a really good space at a really good time and the mind games of confidence are already in full swing. He also added if they play to their full potential, they are unstoppable.

In a nut shell at the start of the New Zealand, South Africa came out on top 2-0 before New Zealand won a warm up match just days before the World Cup started.

In previous World Cups they have faced New Zealand six times holding the edge 4-2, including the last three encounters.

However, de Villiers does not want to look back. How his guys are performing in this ongoing series is all that matters to him.

Proteas skipper said that there has been a lot of emphasis on the past that his team is not doing well at World Cups but all that matters to him now to look forward to the future with optimism. He added that he along with his team have gone through bunch of emotions and fighting and accepting those. But he added that he is not putting emphasis on that at all now.

He said that if they play well they will reach to the top and they are that confident in their abilities. Although they have been through a lot of hardship in the past with our World Cup games but they are excited for tomorrow.

The semi-final is high voltage game for both the team and New Zealand have almost spent an hour analyzing the South Africans but the choker’s captain was neither bothered about the New Zealanders nor the severe injury that can give chance to the striking  fast bowler Adam Milne.
