South Africa’s team could win only 2 out of 5 matches
Lost in 2, match against Zimbabwe was canceled due to rain
New Delhi. David Miller is one of the finest batsmen of South Africa. He led the team to victory by scoring an unbeaten half-century against India. But in a match on Sunday (SA vs NED), he could not perform much. The team is out of the T20 World Cup after losing to the Netherlands. Playing first in the match, Netherlands scored 158 runs for 4 wickets. In reply, South Africa’s team could only score 145 runs for 8 wickets. No batsman of the team could reach the 30-run mark. Captain Temba Bavuma scored the highest 25 runs. Fast bowler Brendan Glover took 3 wickets for 9 runs in 2 overs.
South Africa’s score was 112 for 4 after 15.1 overs. In such a situation, South Africa was looking ahead in the match. But on the second ball of the over, David Miller tried to play a big shot. Meanwhile, Van der Merv, standing at short fine leg, took a brilliant catch while running back. From here the match completely turned. It is known that Merv played the 2009 and 2010 T20 World Cup from South Africa. Later moved to Netherlands.
