Nando’s quick to react to Proteas’ T20 World Cup final defeat

Chicken fast food chain Nando’s has reacted to the Proteas’ heartbreaking defeat against India in the T20 World Cup final in Barbados on Saturday.

India won the match by seven runs in a classic final at the Kensington Oval.

Virat Kohli’s 76 led India to a strong 176/7 but after Heinrich Klaasen blasted a superb 52 from 27 balls South Africa were closing in on victory only to be halted by some outstanding Indian bowling at the end.

South Africa ended on 169/8 with Hardik Pandya taking 3-20 for India to the delight of the huge Indian following at the stadium.


Nando’s is a South African multinational fast casual chain that specialises in Portuguese flame-grilled peri-peri style chicken.

It was founded in Rosettenville in Johannesburg in 1987 by Portugal-born Fernando Duarte and South Africa-born Robert Brozin.

Upon visiting a Portuguese-Mozambican takeaway named Chickenland and trying the chicken with peri peri, the pair bought the restaurant for about R80 000.

They renamed the restaurant Nando’s after Fernando’s first-born son.

Nando’s operates over 1 200 outlets in 30 countries.

Their logo depicts the Rooster of Barcelos, one of Portugal’s most common symbols.
