Don't you need to be favourites in order to choke? Chasing down 300 may have gotten easier in ODI cricket in recent times but you're still never favoured to do so, unless it's against a minnow.
Come back to me after the semis.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Just wait until the Yarps are chasing 150 in the semis
Don't go chasing waterfalls
Ind vs PAK Semi Final: PAK WINS
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Have South Africa taken a big step in removing the CHOKERS tag ..
yeps and another outfit has taken a big step in acquiring the JOKERS tag ..
Correct me if I am wrong here but this is SA's record in world cup knock out games:
92 World Cup: 1st knockout game = semis vs England. Result: Lost
96 World cup: 1st knockout game = Quarters vs WI. Result: Lost
99 World Cup: 1st knockout game = Semis vs Australia. Result: Lost
2003 World Cup: Didnt reach knockout stage
2007 World Cup: 1st knockout game = Semis vs Australia. Result: Lost
2011 World Cup. 1st knockout game = Quarters vs ? Result: ?
2007 T20 World Cup: Didnt reach knockout stage
2009 T20 World Cup: 1st knockout game = Semis vs Pakistan. Result: Lost
2010 t20 World Cup: Didnt reach knockout stage.
Given that they have lost 100% of their knockout games in history, it is a bit hard to understand how beating India in a rather meaningless game is supposed to cure 19 years that they've spent building and enhancing their reputation as the game's finest World cup knockout chokers. The only way to remove the tag is for them to replace that question mark with a win.
