Cricket South Africa (CSA) wishes to congratulate the Proteas Men’s team on their achievement as runners-up in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

The battle faced by both teams was no easy one with the Proteas displaying resilience as they took on an opponent as challenging as India. Despite not claiming the champion’s title, the Proteas deserve to be celebrated for ushering this historic moment in South African Men’s cricketing history. Not only did they secure a spot in a World Cup final, but also achieved an unbeaten track record throughout the tournament which is a feat that will not be forgotten.

CSA Chief Executive Officer, Pholetsi Moseki, said; “A heartfelt congratulations to the Proteas for their valiant efforts. This team has shown tremendous tenacity and strength throughout their entire T20 World Cup campaign, and for that I commend them.

“The Proteas remain champions in their own right. While we may not have the silverware, we have witnessed a team that embodies greatness and unity which is unbreakable.”

“Despite not being able to clinch the victory, reaching the World Cup final for the first time holds immense significance in the world of cricket. We will continue to support the Proteas as they pursue their journey and aim for that number one spot in future World Cups.”

CSA Director of Cricket, Enoch Nkwe, said; “Congratulations to Coach Rob Walter and the Proteas team. As a team, I commend the commitment shown by each and every squad member, both on and off the field. Achieving this milestone and witnessing today’s heroics will be etched into the history books.

“We are extremely proud of the way the team has conducted themselves and the great cricketing moments they have produced throughout this World Cup. This journey is far from over.”

Several members of the Proteas squad will return to South Africa on a date to be confirmed.

The rest of the squad, who are contracted to the Major League Cricket (MLC), will not be immediately returning to South Africa and will travel to the USA for the tournament.
