Netherlands thumps South Africa by 12 runs to knock them out of the T20 World Cup 2022

In what has been the biggest upset of the T20 World Cup 2022, the Netherlands defeated South Africa to knock them out of the tournament. Asked to bat first, Stephan Myburgh (37) and Max ODowd (29) gave their side a good side and stitched 58 runs for the opening partnership.

They made sure that they make full use of the start they got and both Tom Cooper (35) and Colin Ackermann (41) smashed the Proteas bowlers all over that park and helped their side post a total of 158 runs on the board. For South Africa, Keshav Maharaj was the pick of the bowlers and returned with the figures of 2/16.

Chasing the target, South Africa lost Quinton de Kock (13), Temba Bavuma (20) and Rilee Rossouw (25) early and were left tottering at 64/3. Aiden Markram (17) and David Miller (17) held the innings but after that, they suffered a massive collapse and were reduced to 120/7.

Netherlands then held their nerves better and on account of Brandon Gloverโ€™s sensational spell of 3/9, they restricted South Africa to a total of 145 and win the game by 13 runs to knock the Proteas out of the T20 World Cup 2022.
