Proteas T20 video: Firestarter or going down in flames?
The Proteas have released a new video to build up some 'gees' ahead of the World T20.
JOHANNESBURG - T20 cricket is often criticised as being 'hit & giggle' stuff, puffed up with cheerleaders, contrived names for fours and sixes (what the hell is a "DHL Maximum"?) and other gimmicks - but cricketers singing to a bubble gum pop song (sorry Pitbull, a spade is a spade)?
Ok, maybe I'm not "down" with the coolness any more, but the Proteas' latest promotional video, ahead of the 2016 World T20 in India next month, had me shaking my head when I saw it on Friday afternoon.
If AB, Faf and the gang are as stiff on the Indian wickets as they are in the video, the long-running streak without a one-day or T20 World Cup looks certain to continue.
But let me not be the Grinch on Christmas Eve - let's show some gees and get behind our boys.
