Team South Africa have registered their first win in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 on the back of a second half-century in the tournament by wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock. They were further backed by a quality performance on show by bowlers Imran Tahir and Chris Morris who shared seven wickets between them. The Proteas now have three points in their kitty.
Afghanistan have been bowled out for 125 after being reduced to 70/6 at one stage. Imran Tahir was the star behind this comeback by the South African bowling attack picking four wickets while conceding 29 runs. The Proteas need to score 127 runs to get their first points on the board and register their first win in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Afghanistan have been reduced to 70/6 after being placed in a strong position at 69/2. The second rain-induced break which resulted in the game being reduced to 48 overs a side, saw a counter-attack by the South African bowling attack. Afghanistan will look to stitch a late partnership in this scenario and rebuild the innings.
