In a crucial match of the Super Eight stage, South Africa clashed against England with high stakes. South Africa, boasting a strong lineup, opted to bat first. Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks provided a solid start, but Hendricks departed after scoring 19 runs off 25 balls. De Kock, however, anchored the innings with a brilliant half-century, scoring 65 runs from just 38 balls. David Miller contributed 43 runs, helping South Africa set a competitive target of 164 runs for England.

In the second innings, South Africa’s bowlers dominated the proceedings. Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj stood out, each picking up two wickets to dent England’s chase. Ottneil Baartman and Anrich Nortje supported well, securing one wicket apiece. These collective efforts restricted England to 156 runs, securing a crucial 7-run victory for South Africa in a closely contested match.

Markram’s Words:

With that win, South Africa’s winning steak is all alive. They are still unbeaten in the tournament. After the win against England, South Africa’s skipper Aiden Markram said, “Last three overs we had a lot against us but the bowlers had good plans and pulled it off. Message after the powerplay was it got slower. If I am greedy we were 10-20 short especially after the start we got.”

Later he added, “Not quite played a completely game of cricket but we are on the right track. Quinny has been good for us in the last two games.”
