London: Describing the loss against Pakistan as "borderline embarrassing", a furious South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis said his team's performance in the World Cup has been "mediocre".

"The results we are dishing out at the moment, it's tough. The way we played today is borderline embarrassing," Du Plessis said after the match. "We are a mediocre team at the moment because we are making the same mistakes.

One step forward and two steps back is not a good team," an angry Du Plessis added. He termed Proteas humiliating exit from the ongoing World Cup as the "lowest point" of his career.

With two more games to go, South Africa have failed to make the knockout stages for only the second time in the World Cup and Du Plessis felt it might be a case of burnout as they have been playing a lot of cricket.:
