Stand-in Proteas Women captain Sune Luus says her group of players has been operating on a different level of confidence since the start of the year.
The South African ladies produced another crushing performance with an ODI and T20I series victory over India in the subcontinent.
It capped back-to-back series wins in both formats after the Proteas’ commanding triumph over Pakistan in Durban in January this year.
Speaking ahead of their arrival back in South Africa on Thursday, Luus said the team were never afraid of anything and pushed their limits in both tours.
‘From the way we started the Pakistan and India series, there was just a silent confidence going around in the camp,’ Luus told reporters.
‘Since the moment after lockdown, we started hitting the ground running against Pakistan, everyone just never doubted their skill or their teammates’ skill. There was just a silent confidence going around, when we took the field, no one ever doubted that we wanted to win or not. I felt there was never any fear of failure in the two tours.
‘We just prepared well over the last few months to make sure we can pull it off and we were just determined to start putting in the performances as a team, especially looking to a World Cup next year.’
Proteas Women head coach Hilton Moreeng added to his team’s desire to make a valiant push at winning the 50-over World Cup next year.
‘Currently nothing is planned in tours, we’ll come back home and focus on recovery as most countries are preparing for the World Cup qualifiers in New Zealand next year. Our operations at CSA will be looking to get content for us, but it gives us an opportunity to regroup as a team and make sure everyone is fit if there is a possible tour,’ Moreeng explained.
