South Africa lost the crucial make or break match at the Adelaide Oval to go down to ‘minnows’ Netherlands by 13 runs. A win here would have meant the Proteas are through to the semi-finals, but they choked under pressure which meant they are out. Nonetheless, this also meant India are through to the semis.
Coming back to the match, Proteas had won the toss and bowled first. Barring Anrich Nortje, every other bowler went for runs. Meanwhile the Netherlands batted fiercely with opener Myburgh slamming 37 off 30 balls. After his departure, it was Tom Cooper who gave the innings the needed impetus as he accounted for a quick-fire 35, but it was Ackermann who changed the complexion of the match with 41 off 26.
Chasing 159, South Africa kept on losing timely wickets and at one stage were 39/2. Nonetheless, the Dutch kept attacking with change of pace and kept up the pressure on dangerman David Miller who scored run a ball 17. After his departure, the game turned in Netherlands’ favour. Furthermore, some uninspiring batting from Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen made sure the Proteas were reduced to 113/6. They eventually lost the match by 13 runs.
Last ball was hit for four by Anrich Nortje, but that was not enough. This game was lost when David Miller and Heinrich Klaasen were dismissed. South Africa are going home and this would be demoralising; they were one of the favourites.
South Africa choked true to their nature, meanwhile what a match for Netherlands. They have shown amazing fight to beat South Africa by 13 runs. They also now qualify for the 2024 T20 World Cup. No qualifiers for the Dutch.
South Africa lose the match by 13 runs which means India are through to semi-final. Meanwhile Pakistan and Bangladesh both are in contention.
Just a single, but it’s a no ball. Meanwhile Maharaj picks up two and Rabada picks up two off next ball. South Africa Need 19 off 4.
In the air and dropped. That was Maharaj! Logan Van Beek could have ended this game there and then, but he dropped it. Just a single. SA 135/7
SIX–Whack! South Africa still need 27 off 9 as Maharaj slams that one through the Cow Corner. Need more of these shots.
WICKET–That would be the death nail! Klaasen going big, but not that big enough. That was the longest part of the ground and it was taken safely. Netherlands are sensing a win. SA 120/7(17.3)
Top stuff from van Beek here. Beating the batter on most of the occasions as just three runs are conceded. SA Need 41 off 18.; 118/6(17)
WICKET! Edge and gone—another one! This is unbeleivable from Netherlands. Glover picks up his third. Cross seam delivery and Parnell throwing his bat at it. SA 113/6
WICKET-Terrific catch by Van der Merwe. David Miller going for the pull, top edge and the fielder completes a stunning catch. This could well end South Africa’s campaign. SA 112/5(15.2)
SIX–Slower ball from Van Meekeren and Klaasen launches him for a maximum. Meanwhile Pak fans are already rooting for the Dutch. SA 108/4(14.4)
Another tight over from Bas de Leede, just eight runs when the required run rate is ten! David Miller crawling at 16 off 15; South Africa still need 60 off 36. Change of pace working for Dutch.
The very next ball, Markram has the leading edge and the catch was taken at short extra cover. South Africa four down! Will they choke under pressure? SA 90/4
FOUR–Great shot, in-fact, great placement here by Markram. The mid off fielder is just a spectator. SA 90/3
FOUR–That’s beautifully played by Aiden Markram. The spinner tossed it up and he hit it as straight as it can get. SA 83/3(11.5)
And after the good five balls, the final ball is hit for a boundary in the most classical way. On his legs and worked away for FOUR by David Miller. SA 78/3(11)
In the air and dropped. David Miller survives. He has looked iffy this morning. Had that catch been taken South Africa would have been in real trouble. But good over so far from Van Beek. SA 73/3(10.4)
In the air and taken. Very nice bowled, that was the leg cutter and Rossuw pulling it straight down the fielder’s throat; he goes for 25 off 19. SA 64/3(9.3)
Full toss from the spinner and Rossouw slamming it through the mid on region. The fielder wouldn’t be able to cut that off. Good over for SA, 14 runs coming off it. SA 63/2(9)
A win will be enough for South Africa to become the first team from Group 2 and third overall to progress to the semifinals of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. On Saturday, England joined New Zealand in the last-four stage from Group 1 after beating Sri Lanka and this eliminating holders Australia. The Temba Bavuma-led South Africa are the clear favourites but in the unlikely scenario of their defeat, they will have to pack their bags for home. Netherlands are currently languishing at the bottom of the pile and are already out of the race.
