    South Africa too
    South Africa too lost their opening encounter but they fought hard against a tough Aussie side. Their batting did not click but in the first game it was their bowling and some outstanding fielding which kept them in the contest right till the end. The likes of Quinton de Kock their skipper Temba Bavuma and the in-form Rassie van der Dussen at the top of the order are crucial for South Africa's chances as far as making it to the semi-final is concerned. They have a world-class bowling unit and

    West Indies
    West Indies led by Kieron Pollard suffered a thumping defeat against England in their opening game as their winning streak against the English side in T20 WC was put to bed in Dubai. The men in maroon were completely blown away by a strong England side in the first game and they would be looking to make amends against South Africa in their second game.

    Aiden Markram to Lendl Simmons
    Aiden Markram to Lendl Simmons A huge mix-up and you would expect Markram who is a gun fielder to hit the stumps with the time he had! Big chance goes abegging! This is on middle Simmons works it to the right of the bowler. Simmons calls for one Lewis initially takes off but then stops eventually goes for it. That confusion almost cost Simmons his wicket as he too stuttered. Markram gets to the ball quickly gets to his feet takes his time and has a shy at the bowler's end but misses.

It is a sharp delivery it lands on off and then skids through. Simmons looks to play it with an open face of the bat. It goes off the outside edge and to Heinrich Klaasen who tries to take it awkwardly but does not hang on. Replays show that the ball did move away from him in the end and it hit his fingers.

    It was Markram and Rabada who did well at the start of the Powerplay. They did lose control in the second half of the first 6 but Nortje and Maharaj were excellent in the middle overs. The former kept it tight and the latter managed to pick wickets. Pretorius was also really good along with Rabada towards the end. Except for Shamsi

    For the Windies
    For the Windies have to say Simmons' innings is what could cost them! He went at a strike rate of below 50. Had it not been for Lewis Windies would have been in big trouble early on itself. The left-hander scored a dashing half ton. However the men who came after them struggled to get going. A few got off to starts but no one took off. In the end one feels the Windies are a little short of where they would have liked to be.

    Evin Lewis is down for a quick chat. He says that he wanted to spend some time out in the middle and then take on the bowlers. Adds that it is a pretty slow pitch and run-scoring is not easy on this track. Signs off by saying that they will need to bowl well to defend this total now.

    South Africa too
    South Africa too, lost their opening encounter but they fought hard against a tough Aussie side. Their batting did not click but in the first game it was their bowling and some outstanding fielding which kept them in the contest right till the end. The likes of Quinton de Kock, their skipper Temba Bavuma and the in-form Rassie van der Dussen at the top of the order are crucial for South Africa's chances as far as making it to the semi-final is concerned. They have a world-class bowling unit and

    West Indies, led by Kieron Pollard, suffered a thumping defeat against England in their opening game as their winning streak against the English side in T20 WC was put to bed in Dubai. The men in maroon were completely blown away by a strong England side in the first game and they would be looking to make amends against South Africa in their second game. The West Indies side are coming into this mega event with a strong reputation but their big guns will have to deliver against the Proteas. Poll

    Aiden Markram to Lendl Simmons, A huge mix-up and you would expect Markram, who is a gun fielder to hit the stumps with the time he had! Big chance goes abegging! This is on middle, Simmons works it to the right of the bowler. Simmons calls for one, Lewis initially takes off but then stops, eventually goes for it. That confusion almost cost Simmons his wicket as he too stuttered. Markram gets to the ball quickly, gets to his feet, takes his time and has a shy at the bowler's end but misses.

Absolute jaffa from Anrich Nortje and Andre Russell has to walk back to the pavlion. Half of the Windies side back in the hut now.

    For the Windies
    For the Windies, have to say, Simmons' innings is what could cost them! He went at a strike rate of below 50. Had it not been for Lewis, Windies would have been in big trouble early on itself. The left-hander scored a dashing half ton. However, the men who came after them struggled to get going. A few got off to starts but no one took off. In the end, one feels the Windies are a little short of where they would have liked to be.

    The Windies managed to take an early wicket but then could not keep the pressure going. They did not bowl all that bad but did give away a few loose ones and a few extras when not needed. The bowlers though can’t be blamed as they just did not have enough runs on the board on a wicket which got easier to bat on.

    Quite an easy win in the end for South Africa. 144 was always under par and that was pretty much evident. The Proteas did lose Bavuma early but Reeza Hendricks and Rassie played really well to not only get the chase back on track but take South Africa on top. The two added above 50 before Reeza fell after a good knock. Markram though did not let the momentum slip away as he too played a brilliant knock and he along with Rassie have given their side their first win of the tournament.

    Andre Russell to Aiden Markram
    Full, outside off. Aiden Markram carves it to deep extra cover. Shimron Hetmyer from long off runs to his left and dives to stop the ball. But he has touched the ropes while picking up the ball. A boundary. A good effort from him nonetheless.

    FOUR! Yet another full ball, outside off. Aiden Markram lifts it over extra cover and fetches himself a boundary. Another good over for the Proteas. Just 11 needed now!

    Andre Russell to Aiden Markram
    SIX! Magnificent from Aiden Markram! On a length, on middle. Aiden Markram swivels and pulls it with disdain over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. He brings up his fifty as well. A monstrous 92 metre six! What a way to raise the fifty. Scores level now!
