The chockers tag will always be there till South Africa reach the finals of the ICC tournaments, said Temba Bavuma after South Africa’s from the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia.

Primed to qualify for the semi-finals after defeating India, South Africa lost to Pakistan and the Netherlands, eliminating them from the tournament. Bavuma and batter David Miller were in tears in the last overs of the contest.

“Chokers tage will always be there with South Africa until we reach the finals of the ICC tournaments. But we must keep learning, especially the younger lot of the squad,” Bavuma was quoted as saying by ESPN after their loss.

He hoped new players would not make the same mistakes as their predecessors.

“Tristan Stubbs or Marco Janse shouldn’t make the same mistakes. We are still going to carry that tag on our backs,” he added.

Bavuma refused to take any emotional decision on his future and will talk to Cricket South Africa.
