Default Champions Trophy 2013

Victorious in Dhaka
Revisiting the first Champions Trophy, South Africa's only major one-day triumph in a global event.
Firdose Moonda
May 27, 2013

There is one ICC tournament that South Africa approach with excitement rather than a sense of trepidation: the Champions Trophy. It is the one global competition they have actually won. They were the inaugural victors in 1998 and even though it does not, in the words of Daryll Cullinan, "carry the same prestige" as a World Cup, it's a triumph they take great pride in.

The squad that travelled to Dhaka to compete in the Wills International Cup was still relatively new to international cricket - South Africa had only been readmitted seven years before then - so every experience was considered a step in their growth. But they were not just toddlers stumbling in the dark. They had begun to take confident strides and their triumph in 1998 was proof of that.

I always find the history behind this tournament very hilarious! It sums up the mediocrity of ICC. It was then created to promote cricket in new countries like Ban, Ken, Namibia, etc. And now out of no where it slowly became about the top 10 teams, then top 8 teams. Bravo!

EDIT:

Crap! I was looking for the Champ Trophy section. But I couldn't find it here. Feel free to move it over there . Although it doesn't make sense to have it over there with the other domestic league tournaments. This is a INT Tournament.

I wonder how it feels to be a host country and being involved with a series - and in the background all these great countries' teams arrive for the next series while the hosts are still playing their own series - and gets punished on the field.

- but at this moment I can say - Thank God for cricket - and this tournament against the backdrop of what is happening elsewhere.

- yes these games are going to be therapy for me.

India just shown their batting depth after a disastrous start against a fledgling Australian attack. It would be interesting to see if the bowlers can emulate.

SA managed to pull things a little, otherwise it'd been way past 350.

India are in very good shape looks like, I always thought IPL has a very good effect on India's ODI performance, same can be said about BPL & BD in ODIs.
