Today is the day, we will be truly tested and if we can beat them today, we can expect to beat Sri Lanka too!!! Today is a day for miracles and superlative batting by Riad/Tamim/Mushfique and wizardly bowling by Razzaque/Shakib/Naeem....Its an epic battle of David vs. Golliath
Not really, that is a pretty wrong assessment of the SA team. This is their record since the last WC in 2007

3 series lost in 4 years, they are as consistent as they come, nothing unpredicatable about their team. They are one of the most consistent sides in both forms of the games as shown their results. You will always lose the odd game here and there, and choke on the occasion ( they get that choker tag because of the WC 99). Steyn is already becoming a great of the game, he and Morkel can unleash hell on anybody, let's hope they don't play tommorow, or are have an off day.
