Watch: SA cricketers gets crazy after rugby team’s dramatic win in World Cup quarter-final: A convincing win over India by 18 runs at Rajkot has taken the visitors close to a series win, South Africa just need one more win to wrap up a historic double, as they have already packed the T20I trophy in their kitty.
South Africa national rugby union team’s dramatic victory over Wales in the first quarter-final clash at the 2015 Rugby World Cup which is currently going on in England has made the Cricketing side go bonkers.
The Indian trio of Virat Kohli, Ravi Shastri and MS Dhoni have already shown their support for the Rugby side along with the Proteas.
The Proteas took time out to support the South African national rugby team, commonly known by the nickname ‘Springboks’ in their effort to reach the semi-finals of the world cup.
The Proteas were in full strength to witness the match at the hotel where the team was put up in Rajkot and after South African captain Fourie du Preez scored a late one in the 75th minute that helped the Springboks beat Wales 23-19. The cricketers went wild while celebrating with the likes of Faf du Plessis & Farhaan Behardien going nuts over the victory. The celebrations were captured and uploaded by AB de Villiers on his official Twitter account.
South Africa have won the Rugby world cup on two occasions (1995 & 2007).
