Cricket: South Africa hopes it’s fifth time lucky in Australia showdown

Cricket: South Africa is in a bid for redemption as they are gearing up to face Australia in a World Cup semifinal clash tomorrow. The Proteas have faced persistent setbacks in their previous four semifinal appearances, falling short in 1992, 1999, 2007, and 2015. Particularly, the defeats in 1999 and 2007 were handed to them by the Australians at Edgbaston and St Lucia respectively. As they brace for the upcoming encounter at Kolkata’s iconic Eden Gardens, South Africa aims to rewrite their semifinal narrative and secure a coveted spot in the final.
