In 2007, only 13 rhinos were illegally killed for their horns in South Africa, but the numbers then surged to meet demand as affluence grew in Asian economies such as Vietnam and China. A total of 1,028 rhinos were poached in 2017 in South Africa. … [Read more...] about South Africa Rhino Poaching Drops Sharply; 100s Still Being Killed

Australia opening batsman David Warner has called on South African supporters to show respect ahead of the three-match Twenty20 International series starting in Johannesburg on Friday. Warner was painted as the villain of the piece during the “Sandpapergate” scandal in March 2018, in which he was accused of trying to alter the condition of the ball during a test match along with his captain Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft. … [Read more...] about South Africa vs Australia: David Warner calls for respect from SA fans
"And that was my first time ever judging a group that was deaf! I'm like, how are you playing these notes and you can't hear the notes? And I know that that was a gift from up above. So, if you can't hear it, they probably feel it. And I think it's incredible!" Taylor said. … [Read more...] about South Africa Hosts World’s Largest Marimba and Steelpan Festival
The absence of Dottin was felt severely, while captain Stafanie Taylor also missed a lot of the action - opting out of the Pakistan tour and then missing the India games due to injury. Hayley Mathews made a hundred against Ireland, but then had to miss the Australia T20Is due to a disciplinary ban, before returning against India and fairing pretty well with the ball, although her batting was a let-down. The intermittent availability of these three players, around whom most of West Indies' recent success has been built, has proved a big handicap. Their reunion for the mega-event is the only thing that presents them with any hope. … [Read more...] about WT20 World Cup Group B: Time for South Africa to soar?
“He looked pretty normal like before, I mean before he got injured,” Kohli said after India’s practice session. “Pretty similar to how he was bowling before the ankle injury, and he was hitting good areas.

Really good to see him bowling with pace and in good areas.” … [Read more...] about India vs New Zealand prediction: India predicted XI for 1st Test – New openers, lone spinner in Wellington
The South African batting has ceased to be a problem in this format, particularly with Heinrich Klaasen taking charge after the axing of JJ Smuts. It's the bowling that has panicked, even with the return of Dale Steyn, who only played the first T20I (where he unveiled a jaw-dropping slower ball) before sticking firmly to the bench for the final two. The resurgent England line-up handed them an absolutely thrashing in the final T20I in particular, led by captain Eoin Morgan, who unloaded on a clueless South African bowling attack in their own conditions. Nevertheless, Rabada has returned to lend a little more confidence, perhaps a shoulder to cry on, so perhaps Nortje and Rabada can drive a resurrection for the Proteas, as could Faf du Plessis, who is likely to open for de Kock. … [Read more...] about South Africa, Australia, and a ‘peri-peri’ contest like no other
