ICC World Cup: Whatmore excited by Zimbabwe potential as Proteas struggle

Hamilton: Zimbabwe's much-travelled coach Dav Whatmore believes that win or lose against mighty South Africa, Sunday's exposure to some of the game's giants can only work in his team's favour.

Zimbabwe had the Proteas rocking at 83 for four at one stage with Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis and South Africa skipper AB de Villiers dismissed on a slow pitch at Seddon Park.

"This team has struggled. Enough is enough," said Whatmore during a drinks break. "The potential is exciting. These guys getting the chance to bowl to the likes of Amla and de Villiers is absolutely fantastic.

"It'll do the development of our young guys no end of good," added Whatmore, who coached Sri Lanka to the 1996 World Cup title.
