Aiden’s top class knock

The credit for today’s spectacular win should go to Aiden Markram, the top performing batsman of South Africa. While scoring a spectacular 90-run knock off 93 deliveries, Aiden missed out on smashing a hundred but significantly contributed to the team’s 271-run class. With this feat, he attained the second position on the ICC Rankings table with a strike rate and average of 123.83 and 53 respectively. Heinrich Klassen also made it to the table at the 7th position while having scored a total of 300 runs in six innings played by the Proteas. 

South Africa’s next

The Proteas are set to lock horns with the No.3 ranked team on the table, i.e New Zealand on November 1 in Pune. Both South Africa and New Zealand are the top teams on the table having lost just one match out of all the games they have played. It will be definitely worthwhile to witness the top contenders to combat each other for the top spot. Currently, South Africa is ranked at no.1 followed by India at 2nd position, then New Zealand at 3rd and finally Australia being ranked at position 4.
