Aiden Markram says the Proteas have “one more step left” after becoming the first South African men’s captain to reach the World Cup final.

The Proteas maintain their unbeaten run in the T20 World Cup after they secured a nine-wicket victory over Afghanistan at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba.

South Africa are now set to face either India or England in the final, which is scheduled to take place at the Kensington Oval on Saturday.

“It’s a personal and individual motivation that you get to a final, to earn the opportunity to hopefully lift the trophy,” Markram told the T20 World Cup website.

“But we all understand (as a team) this game and how it works and how things can go for you, things can go against you, and you take that in your stride.

“They were guys that are legends of the game, legends of South African cricket. In my eyes, it doesn’t matter if they made a final or not, because they inspired all of us to play cricket for South Africa.

“Because of them, we’re trying to represent those people that have played before us, so we’re glad we’ve made them proud, (and) to an extent I still feel we’ve got one more step left.”
