Watch! Steyn and co. go shark cage diving

South Africa's cricketers enjoyed a day off this week and spent it not on the golf course, but rather on the high seas, going shark cage diving in Hermanus.

The Proteas will face England in a two-match T20 series this weekend, so facing a premier predator will make Jos Buttler's big hitting tame in comparison. Mental preparation at its finest.

Gun batsman AB de Villiers was more concerned about the sea sickness aspect than the actual sharks. Because he's a shark himself, so…

Million Dollar Man Chris Morris was also excited. Wonder if the post-dive drinks were on him?

Paceman Kagiso Rabada posted a picture before the trip, but nothing during or after. We're pretty sure he survived…


I guess it's about that time. Let's go and see some big sharks.???? " daaaa dum daaaa dum daaaa dumb. #jaws

Dale Steyn posted two videos of the trip, one with the shark nicely in frame, and the other teasing media liaison Lerato Malekutu.

Faf du Plessis posted footage filmed from the boat, and the shark is very clearly hungry. Having done this as well, let us assure you that it is terrifying.


What a day with the big dogs of the sea #sharkcagediving #gansbaai #predators

Batsman David Miller wrote on Twitter afterwards. Bucket List item done and dusted for him.
