Proteas out of #CWC: we’re stumped for words

We were all shattered when the Proteas lost to the Black Caps in the semi-final of the cricket World Cup earlier on Tuesday. AAISHA DADI PATEL rounds up South Africans’ online expressions of grief.

The Proteas’ loss was enough to make grown men cry like babies.

This tweet pretty much summed it up.

Some people placed the blame on JP Duminy and Farhaan Behardien.

But there was no doubt that our captain, AB de Villiers, did the best that he could.

In AB’s own words, he won’t be returning to SA with any regrets. “We don’t play for ourselves; there’s a bigger picture, and it’s for the people back home,” the captain said.

Never mind that we didn’t make the World Cup final – the worst part of it is all the C-word articles that’ll be spawning all over the interwebs in the next few days.
