Springboks find solace in the Protean ODI victory

The South African rugby team ‘Springboks’, which lost in the knock-out stages of the World Cup in England, have found solace in the way the Proteans beat India in the One Day International (ODI) series here on Sunday. South Africa decimated India at Mumbai in the decider by a massive margin of over 200 runs. This is the first time they have defeated India in their own backyard in a limited overs bilateral series.

As a matter of fact, there is a deep-rooted connection between the cricketers and rugby players from South Africa. Last time, we saw how ahead of the Chepauk battle all the South African cricketers were egging on the players in England from a team hotel in India. Now, to see the Sprinboks find solace after the cricketers beat India shows the harmony that exists among he sportsmen from the African country.
