IN World Cups, the term iceman has never been synonymous with Proteas players who have time and again crumbled under pressure on the big stage.

However, it seems the Proteas have finally found their iceman in international cricket newcomer Ottneil Baartman.

Since the inaugural edition of the SA20, the 31-year-old fast bowler has proved himself to be a clutch player the captain looks to when the chips are down.

Somehow, Baartman has been able to deliver similar performances in his first tour with the Proteas as he defended seven runs in the 20th over to help South Africa beat Nepal by one run in a T20 World Cup group match.
