International cricket has got a lot more intense and hectic these days. Teams are constantly on the road and are playing continuous cricket. But teams have found ways to cope with it.
Over the years, teams have changed and their legacies and strategies have also changed. Each team has its own style and brand of cricket. England revolutionised the white-ball game after the 2015 World Cup drubbing. India who were a largely spin dominated team have started making a statement with their fast bowlers.
Thus, different teams have their own slogans or success mantras. Here are the success mantras of the top 10 teams in international cricket.
Top 10 teams and their slogans and success mantras:
1. South Africa – Avoid the choke?
You think of South Africa and you think of one word and that’s choking. Right from the time they were readmitted into cricket in 1992, they haven’t had the rub of the green in knockouts. In fact, the Proteas have tended to collapse or choke in the crunch moments.
Take most of the ICC tournaments and you will see South Africa choking in the knockouts. They’ve tended to crumble in high-pressure situations. They tend to play bilaterals and the group stages of any tournament really well but haven’t got across the line even once in the multi-team tournaments.
In fact, South Africa seem to be focusing too much on not choking and playing the way they play in group stages. However, it hasn’t helped. The pressure is getting to them and the ‘C’ tag hovers around their head all the time.
