Sune Luus Discusses South Africa's Historic Moment

The Women's T20 World Cup 2023 final appearance by the South African side, according to skipper Sune Luus, is evidence of how seriously the nation takes women's cricket.

Although admitting that winning the championship would be the icing on the cake,

Luus believed that just reaching the final alone could inspire more South African women to play cricket.

In the second World Cup semi-final in Cape Town's Newlands, the Proteas shocked England by six runs.

The tournament's favorite, Australia, will now square off against the hosts in the championship game on February 26.

Luus' squad will make history by playing in the World Cup final as the first men's or women's cricket team from South Africa.

At a pre-game news conference, the Proteas skipper spoke about the momentous event and said:

I don't believe we can do much more to demonstrate the people that women - that we are serious about women's cricket in this country - than being in the final.

Clearly, winning the final would be the icing on the cake. But I don't think the country needs much more motivation than just making it to the final.
