We were aware that hosting the World Cup would not be simple due to the difficulties and pressures that come with it.a daily basis. Yet the team’s reaction to the first game demonstrates its character and tenacity, according to Moreeng, who spoke at a news conference.
We are still in pain after making it to the final and coming so close to winning. Despite everyone on the team giving it their hardest, we can’t win them all. We can only be glad of what occurred at the World Cup; we have no regrets about what occurred there. This group of brilliant cricketers has always wished to make their mark in South Africa, therefore the legacy lives on, he continued.
The team we have to win the World Cup is quite strong: Moreeng
Despite the fact that they were unable to win the trophy this timeAround, Moreeng thinks they have a strong team that can contend for the championship the following season. He added that the team’s nucleus is young and that the U19 players can join them to create a formidable side.
We have a highly good team, so winning the World Cup is absolutely realistic. The team’s key members are all relatively young, but they can only mature and improve as a result of the collective World Cup experience. Even the young people who were watching the U-19 want to move up to the senior team and see what the standard is, the 45-year-old said in his conclusion.
