Proteas' losses: Do we lack a winning culture, asks Eusebius?

Eusebius and callers on the open line reflect on the sporting weekend and what led to the cricket team to lose to Bangladesh.

What is happening to the South African sports national teams?

The weekend has been painful for many sports fans.

The Proteas lost to Bangladesh in the Cricket World Cup. The Springboks Sevens managed to get to the semi-finals in the World Sevens Series.

Eusebius McKaiser engaged callers on the open line on what is going on with the national teams and if its a matter of psychology are they just chokers.

It wasn't a great sporting weekend for me as a sports fan because of our Cricket loss yesterday.

Eusebius McKasier, Show host

In South Africa, we like shortcuts in general. From infrastructure to technical personnel, we have not built a tough competitive environment for the low age at school so that when you grow, you hate loss before you think of a salary.

Mondli, Caller

We are a nation of losers. The problem is since 1994 we have allowed politicians to dictate to sports people what they can and cannot do. Politicians run almost every sports code we have. Fikile Mbalula must take full responsibility for this.

Adil, Caller
