Cape Town - The Blitzboks have shown their support for the Proteas ahead of next week's Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.

The Blitzboks are currently in England for the London Sevens, which gets underway this weekend.

In the slow-motion skit on Twitter, Blitzboks skipper Siviwe Soyizwapi bowls to Werner Kok, who uncharacteristically blocks the delivery.

Soyizwapi then goes on to wish the Faf du Plessis and the Proteas well with the rest of the Blitzboks standing behind him.

The Proteas open their World Cup campaign against the hosts, England on May 30 at The Oval.

Meanwhile, the Blitzboks currently occupy fourth on the World Series log and will face Japan, Canada and Argentina in Pool A at Twickenham on Saturday, May 25.
