South Africa in Cricket World Cup
Even though South Africa was one of the test-playing nations of the world when ICC Cricket World Cup was launched, it was not allowed to participate in the game. The reason for this was that the team had been banned from international cricket due to apartheid.
It was only in the sixth ODI World Cup, by when the apartheid regime had fallen in South Africa, that the team's international sports boycott ended and it became one of the contenders of the tournament. Till date, the team hasn't managed to win the trophy even once.
