As Smith said South Africa have handled pressure better than Australians better in past few months.well when they were playing one day internationals against India and pakistan in south africa they recovered under pressure from critical situations in many matches which they could not do in previous world cups held in 2003 and 1992,1999 .In 1996 they lost in quarter finals.this time they are confident that they will win.so after they chased 434 they are very confident and that too against Australain attack who knows this they have got good chance to win the world cup.
