Not out? What are the Proteas' REAL chances against Australia tomorrow?

The Proteas go up against old rivals Australia in Manchester at the Cricket World Cup on Saturday.

But in light of the team's poor performance in the tournament under Captain Faf de Plessis, do they really stand any chance of winning?

Cricket correspondent Neil Manthorp says nothing's decided yet.

There's always a way and I mean that. There's the sentiment and inspiration of Imran Tahir and I think JP Duminy will be selected as well.

However, Manthorpe says the Australian team will certainly have its eye on the prize.

The Aussies are very good at winning the most important games.

And what of the future of Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis?

I don't think it will be the last game Faf Du Plessis plays for South Africa because I think he's desperate to play in the Test series against India in England at the end of the year.
