JOHANNESBURG - Proteas all-rounder JP Duminy told Eyewitness News on Wednesday, despite crashing out of the Cricket World Cup, there were plenty of positives for the team.

South Africa rewrote the record books by finally winning a knockout match after beating Sri Lanka in the quarter-finals before losing to New Zealand by four wickets on Tuesday.

Duminy said they would take a lot out of the tournament.

"What we have built here is something special. The team culture that we have created, the camaraderie that is amongst the guys… Younger guys being able to come in and feel part of the team immediately and be free, play their natural game and not feel the pressure of having to be accepted."

Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula also told Sport Talk's Udo Carelse that he was proud of the Proteas.

"I feel proud of our boys. I am only sad that the World Cup eluded us. I am also happy with their performance, I am over the moon."

He said he shed tears of joy while watching the game.

"I felt fulfilled inside that I saw my fellow countrymen fighting it out in the field of play, in the moment of seeking to capture glory for the moment."
