South Africa’s veteran paceman Dale Steyn is confident his side can end their World Cup jinx and get to the final — with “a bit of luck”.

The Proteas have always been among the world’s top cricket teams but have never got past the semi-final hurdle — losing four times. With the Faf du Plessis-led side winning 11 of their last 13 one-day series, Steyn believes the South Africans can lift the trophy at the tournament in England and Wales starting May 30.

“We’re going with good expectations,” Steyn, who has joined Indian Premier League side Royal Challengers Bangalore, told reporters.

“If you’re not going to the World Cup expecting to win, then you probably shouldn’t go. But I’m not going to lie, we have some fantastic players,” said Steyn.
