ICC World Cup 2019: Twitter Lauds Australia's Fight and South Africa's Character

South Africa ensured they finished their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign in fine fashion beating Australia by 10 runs in the final league game of the tournament at Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday (July 6).

It also meant that Imran Tahir and JP Duminy ended their ODI careers on a high and Twitter wished them well going into the future.

Earlier, Faf du Plessis’ maiden World Cup century along with Rassie van der Dussen’s 95 which set up a strong total for South Africa.

In the chase, South Africa struck with the new balls to put pressure right back on Australia but David Warner who got a life in the very first over, made them pay with a fine century.

Once Warner fell, it was all upto Alex Carey who did not disappoint scoring another half-century and nearly took Australia over the line.
