Johannesburg:

South Africa coach Russell Domingo has said that his side doesn’t believe in sledging their opponents, adding that the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) warning would not affect his team in the upcoming World Cup, which gets underway from February 14 in Australia and New Zealand.

Earlier in the week, the ICC had issued a warning for players asking them to refrain from sledging their opponents.

Domingo said that they were not a team that gets involved in things like that, adding that they rather focus on outplaying the opposition than trying to intimidate them with words, Sport24 reported.

Commenting on the ICC’s recent warning, he said that the decision didn’t really affect them as it was aimed at the other team s who need to try and sort out their own problems, the report added.

They just want to play the game the way it was meant to be played and to win cricket matches was their focus, he added.

South Africa will open their World Cup campaign against Zimbabwe on February 15 in Hamilton.
