Well not the SA team but I choked seeing this video... Facing a press conf after a defeat is probably worser than the defeat in itself.. The team had shaped up so well this season but hard luck as usual!!! I still love them, will always be my favorites :)

Don't worry Smith.. You guys played well... Very electric team, the best fielding site in the world. Next WC will be yours. Hope you play that match too.. I hope you guys will play more tough cricket between now and that WC. So other teams will fear to face SA in the future like what happened with Aus last WC.

Tough to handle the press after a disappointing loss

check out the question at 2:20. hilarious. only a member of the indian press would ask the losing captain a question like that a few mins after crashing out of the world cup quarter finals.
