Pollock, South Africa's outstanding performer in the recent series against Pakistan, said the Proteas had no reason to fear anyone ahead of the tournament that begins next month in the Caribbean.

"I believe we have the ability," he told the Sunday Times. "If we get it right on the day, we have shown we can beat anyone."
