WATCH: Catching cricket fever and a sprinkling of golf

Will the Proteas hold their nerve when it matters most at the Cricket World Cup?

Barring a few mischievous stories doing the rounds in various media outlets, it seems like the euphoria of the Rugby World Cup has settled down.

It’s now our cricketers’ turn to get the blood pressure up as Temba Bavuma and his men gear up for a mammoth World Cup semifinal against Australia next week.

And ‘Africa’s Major’, the Nedbank Challenge golf tournament got underway this week at the iconic Gary Player Country Club at Sun City.

Join host Trevor Cramer, Head of Citizen Sport Jacques van der Westhuyzen and senior Citizen sports writer Wesley Botton for another instalment of your weekly podcast TALKING POINT.

Wesley takes guard and ducks the bouncers as we unpack that disaster against India, the Proteas’ strengths and weaknesses and contrasting path to the semifinals ahead of the huge clash against the Aussies, Glen Maxwell’s phenominal double century against Afghanistan and will the South Africans finally get the balance right?

And the highly versatile leader of the pack Jacques is on the tee-box trying to answer the burning question whether the DP World Tour affiliated Nedbank Challenge has lost its allure and is still the major drawcard like it once was on the golf calendar, is there a South African winner in our future and players who stick out as potential winners.

Plus…our weekly FLOP and GOLD STAR of the week.
