CARDIFF – The Proteas have arrived in the Welsh capital city of Cardiff eager to change their Cricket World Cup fortunes.
They face Afghanistan in a day-night affair on Saturday at Sophia Gardens (2.30pm SA time start).
The Proteas are just one point above the last-placed Afghans on the World Cup table after playing four games already.
The Welsh are, of course, passionate about their sport, particularly rugby.
The Springboks played the opening game at the Millennium Stadium in 1999, when the Welsh famously beat the Springboks for the first time ever.
