T20 WC 2022: South Africa beat the opposition team by 104 runs with the help of Riley Russo and Norkea

Sydney. Riley Russo’s century and Anrich Norkea’s four-wicket haul helped South Africa beat Bangladesh by 104 runs in the T20 World Cup match on Thursday. Russo, apart from playing an innings of 109 runs in 56 balls with seven fours and eight sixes, also shared a 163-run partnership for the second wicket with Quinton de Kock (63 runs in 38 balls, seven fours, three sixes), which helped South Africa scored 205 for five wickets. After this Norkia performed their best in T20 and took four wickets for 10 runs. Bangladesh’s team could only score 101 runs in 16.3 overs. Chasing a huge target for victory, Bangladesh openers Soumya Sarkar (15) and Najmul Hossain (9) scored 26 runs in the first two overs, including 17 runs from Kagiso Rabada’s first over.

Captain Temba Bavuma removed Rabada and handed the ball to Norkea, who devastated Bangladesh’s top-order as soon as he arrived. He sent both the openers to the pavilion in his first over. Soumya returned with a catch behind the wicket and even Hussain could not stand. After this, captain Shakib Al Hasan (1) was dismissed leg before by Norkia. Rabada sent Afif Hussain (1) to the pavilion. Mehidy Hasan (1) was dismissed by Aiden Markram. Since then no big partnership could be formed for Bangladesh.

Earlier, rain also disturbed the match, but there was no cut in the number of overs. Russo and de Kock also rained fours and sixes during their partnership in the meantime. Together they hit 14 fours and 11 sixes. South Africa did not start well. Captain Temba Bavuma, struggling with poor form, after scoring just two runs, was caught by wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan in the very first over of Taskin Ahmed (1 for 46). Russo and de Kock took an aggressive approach from the beginning. Both scored 21 runs in Taskin’s next over with three fours and a six. Rosseau, targeting spinner Mehdi Hassan, scored 16 runs in his over.

After this the game was halted for about 20 minutes due to rain, due to which Bangladesh breathed a sigh of relief. When the match resumed, Bangladesh’s bowlers curbed the run-rate, but South Africa’s batsmen played big shots once the match resumed. Apart from Mustafizur Rahman (no wickets for 25 runs in four overs), all Bangladesh bowlers were proving expensive after which captain Shakib Al Hasan (two wickets for 33 runs) came out to bowl in the 11th over, but South Africa’s batsmen Didn’t spare them either.

In the 15th over, Dekock was caught by Soumya Sarkar on the delivery of Afif Hussain (1 wicket for 11 runs). New batsman Tristan Stubbs also became a victim of Shakib by scoring seven runs. When Rousseau reached close to the century, the run rate slowed down a bit. He completed his second consecutive century with a run off Shakib’s ball and then hit a six on this spinner. Russo returned to the pavilion by giving a catch to Liton Das in the 19th over of Shakib.
