MATCH REPORT

26 October 15:40

An inspired and fighting performance from the Proteas, who come with a win despite off-field drama involving Quinton de Kock's exclusion from the starting XI.

A lot to discuss as the Proteas delivered a brilliant performance with both bat and ball, however, it might sadly be overshadowed by De Kock.

26 October 15:37

RESULT:

The Proteas have beaten the West Indies by 8 wickets to get their first T20 World Cup win of this campaign. Aiden Markram smashed an unbeaten half-century with Rassie van der Dussen making 43 (51) and Reeza Hendricks contributing 39.

Markram scored an unbeaten 51 off just 26 balls (2 fours and 4 sixes) as the Proteas comfortably won with 10 balls remaining.

Akeal Hosein was the Windies best bowler as he returned with figures of 1 for 27 in his three overs.

18.2 - Comment! South Africa won by 8 wickets.
18.2 - Comment! Man of the match - Anrich Nortje (South Africa):- Overs:4 - Runs:14 - Wkts:1 - Econ:3.50.
18.2 - Comment! Nortje: It was a good wicket, definitely it brings in some extra variation and something else to the bowlers. It's helped us as well being able to give some information to the team on conditions, that's probably the situation for all the players in all the teams. It is not a lot about skill anymore, it is about understanding and communication on the field. it is really nice to have him around. Hopefully we can build on this. I do not think we are close to a perfect game, but we can keep on build and try to close that perfect game.
18.2 - Comment! Kieron Pollard: It is disappointing today. I thought the first 6 overs, the end result of 43 without loss we would have taken that. we want to keep momentum going but we lost couple of wickets. After 6 overs he was there and we wanted to bat a couple more overs without losing wickets, they are trying. At the end of the day you saw Rassie came out and played the same for them. It was a disappointing.
18.2 - Comment! Temba Bavuma: Much better than our first game. we know that areas that we need improves. Our bowling again was outstanding. A good day for us. we needed with the bat. Aiden has been hitting the ball wonderfully at the moment. we are not sure that how wicket are going react, we thought Aiden out there. A guy like Quinton, he obviously plays an integral role within the team, not just with the bat but as a senior player but with that, it was another game of cricket that we had to play for our country and we had to live up to that.
